    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats carry a three-game winning streak into Busch Stadium tonight. The Nationals are 3-0 since Danny Espinosa took over the leadoff spot Friday night. Coincidence, an actual sign of something or simply poor pitching by the Brewers over the weekend?

    US Presswire photo Rookie Danny Espinosa leads the Nationals so far with 14 RBI.

  5. Lineup finally breaks out during sweep

    Apr 18, 2011, 1:45 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Danny Espinosa is congratulated after homering in Game 1. The hits would come, the Nationals kept insisting, even as batting averages tumbled below the Mendoza line and the team’s collective slugging percentage threatened to fall below .300. As long as they kept getting quality performances from their pitching staff, everyone was confident…

    Updated at 12:43 p.m. The Nationals placed reliever Todd Coffey on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain this morning and recalled right-hander Collin Balester from Class AAA Syracuse to replace him.

    Apr 16, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    In his home debut at low-Class A Hagerstown last night, Bryce Harper went 0-for-3 with a walk. The 18-year-old outfielder is hitting just .226 in his first nine games, and he’s learning what it takes to survive the daily grind of the minor leagues. Here’s video from CSNwashington.com of Harper’s performance last night, with footage…
