US Presswire photo Jayson Werth had four hits, three of them in the first three innings. Game in a nutshell: On the first day of school for many in the region, the Nationals took the Cubs' beleaguered pitching staff to school.

US Presswire photo John Lannan is expected to join the Nats’ rotation between Sept. 14-16. He last pitched five days ago, tossing his second consecutive shutout for Class AAA Syracuse, so John Lannan would normally have been primed to return to the mound tonight. Except there’s nowhere for the left-hander to pitch tonight. The minor-league…

With the minor-league season now complete, the Nationals added one more September call-up, promoting outfielder Corey Brown from Class AAA Syracuse before tonight's game against the Cubs. Brown, who becomes the 32nd member of the Nationals' active roster, is making his third stint with the big-league club this season. He went 3-for-16 with his first…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats look to make it 6 of their last 7 tonight at Nationals Park. Whatever the reason Michael Morse was pulled from yesterday's game in the fourth inning, it wasn't enough to keep him from playing tonight. Morse is back in the Nationals' lineup, hitting cleanup against…

US Presswire photo Tyler Clippard notched his 30th save of the season yesterday. If you were out of town over the holiday weekend, you sure missed some eventful stuff at the ballpark. The Nationals took three of four from the Cardinals, informed Stephen Strasburg he'll make only two more starts this season, called up John…

Associated Press photo Ryan Zimmerman, Bryce Harper and Tyler Clippard celebrate the Nats’ 82nd win. When victory No. 82 in the most successful baseball season in the District of Columbia in 43 years was official, the reaction on the field and in the clubhouse at Nationals Park was no different than after any of the…

Michael Morse was removed from today's Nationals victory in the middle of the fourth inning, a surprise mid-game benching the club said was due to right thumb soreness even though manager Davey Johnson later cited an issue with Morse's hand and Morse himself insisted nothing was physically wrong. "My hand feels fine," Morse said. "My…

US Presswire photo Adam LaRoche is greeted in the dugout after hitting his second-inning homer. Game in a nutshell: Facing the Cubs for the first time since the season-opening series, the Nationals found themselves in the same kind of pitchers' duel they experienced five months ago at Wrigley Field. Ross Detwiler and Jeff Samardzija traded…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Cubs are in town for this Labor Day matinee at Nationals Park. Happy Labor Day, everyone. It's a day off for most, and the unofficial final day of summer for many, but it's been a busy morning here at Nationals Park. If you missed any of the…

US Presswire file photo Stephen Strasburg will hand over the ball to Davey Johnson twice more this year.
