    Apr 14, 2012, 5:15 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo Jayson Werth is mobbed after delivering the game-winning hit in the 13th inning.

    Needing to clear a roster spot for Rick Ankiel before he returns from the 15-day disabled list, the Nationals designated outfielder Brett Carroll for assignment following tonight's 13-inning victory over the Reds.

    US Presswire photo Jordan Zimmermann was great again, but again got no run support. Game in a nutshell: Jordan Zimmermann pitched brilliantly (again) and got no run support (again). Stymied for 7 1/3 innings by Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, the Nationals finally got on the board when pinch-hitter Xavier Nady delivered a solo homer off…

    Apr 13, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The first-place Nationals host the Reds in the first night home game of the year. Do you remember the last time the Washington Nationals hosted a game while in sole possession of first place? Let's turn the way-back machine to July 21, 2005, when Frank Robinson's fast-fading, 54-41…

  7. For starters, rotation has been great

    Apr 13, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    We knew the Nationals rotation was deep, talented and capable of doing some special things this season. But did we expect all of that to become so obvious so early in the year? With one week in the books, Nationals starters have already established themselves as one of the sport's best. Gio Gonzalez's seven-inning gem…

  8. Zim’s unconventional walk-off

    Apr 12, 2012, 11:45 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman was all smiles after scoring the game-winning run on a wild pitch.

But fill-in closer Brad Lidge blew the save, allowing a two-run single to Ryan Ludwick in…

  10. Updates on Storen, Rendon, Goodwin

    Apr 12, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    His right arm in a sling following the first surgery of his life, Drew Storen sat in the dugout at Nationals Park this morning and expressed relief that yesterday's procedure to remove a small bone chip from his elbow was relatively minor. "When I woke up and they said that it was quick, it was…
