  1. Game 23: Mets at Nats

    Apr 27, 2011, 7:43 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Losers in five of their last six games, the Nats try to get back on track tonight. The Nationals' upcoming schedule isn't very kind. They've got four games this weekend against the World Series champion Giants (with Tim Lincecum slated to pitch Friday's opener). Then a nine-game road…

    Apr 27, 2011, 5:12 PM EDT

  3. Slaten’s continued struggles cost Nats

    Apr 27, 2011, 4:15 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Doug Slaten allowed the tie-breaking double in tonight’s 6-4 loss to the Mets. Relief pitchers already have precious little margin for error when they enter a game. That margin shrinks to microscopic levels for left-handed specialists, who get to face only one batter on any given night, typically with the entire game…

  5. Zimmerman still needs time to return

    Apr 26, 2011, 11:16 PM EDT

    Ryan Zimmerman took a step Tuesday toward his eventual return from an abdominal strain, but the Nationals third baseman is still going to need some more time before he’s activated off the disabled list. Zimmerman performed some light baseball activities Tuesday afternoon for the first time since going on the 15-day DL April 9. Standing…

  6. Game 22: Mets at Nats

    Apr 26, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER After a rainy road trip, the Nats are back home tonight to face the Mets. The Nationals open a seven-game homestand tonight, still reeling somewhat from their disappointing 2-4 trip to St. Louis and Pittsburgh and in need of a bounce-back victory tonight. Under normal circumstances, a home…

  7. Desmond on paternity leave, Bernadina up

    Apr 26, 2011, 7:18 PM EDT

    Updated at 6:29 p.m. The Nationals have placed shortstop Ian Desmond on the newly created paternity leave list and recalled outfielder Roger Bernadina from Class AAA Syracuse to temporarily take his roster spot. Desmond's wife, Chelsey, had been due to give birth to the couple's first child in Sarasota, Fla., and the Nationals had been…

  9. When it rains, it pours

    Apr 26, 2011, 4:01 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Ian Desmond dodges raindrops on his way to third base during tonight’s loss. PITTSBURGH — At the end of a long (and very wet) road trip, the Nationals could only look to the heavens and ask: Why us? Why does it seem to rain everywhere we go? “April showers,” John Lanann muttered.…

  10. Stairs on 0-for-11: "Just embarrassing"

    Apr 25, 2011, 10:43 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Matt Stairs enters Monday night’s game hitless in 11 at-bats this season. PITTSBURGH — Matt Stairs has been in this game too long and hit his way out of too many slumps to start mincing words now at age 43.
