    Apr 11, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg dominated the Mets over six scoreless innings. Game in a nutshell: In a highly anticipated matchup between a two-time Cy Young Award winner and out-dueled fireballer who hopes to win that award some day, Stephen Strasburg outshone Johan Santana. The Nationals didn't produce much at the plate, but they took…

  2. Game 6: Nats at Mets

    Apr 11, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

    US Presswire file photo Aces Stephen Strasburg and Johan Santana meet today at Citi Field. With the title of "staff ace" comes an important responsibility: The daunting task of going up against fellow aces, especially early in the season when most teams' rotations are in sync. So Stephen Strasburg isn't only facing the Mets lineup…

  3. Minus Morse, where will runs come from?

    Apr 11, 2012, 4:38 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Michael Morse's rehab stint has been put on hold indefinitely. In a week filled with discouraging injury news (see: Rendon, Anthony; and Storen, Drew) the latest update on Michael Morse is the harshest punch to the gut yet. Just when it appeared Morse would be ready to rejoin the Nationals in time…

  4. Game 5: Nats at Mets

    Apr 10, 2012, 7:19 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Ross Detwiler makes his season debut tonight at Citi Field. They won two nailbiters, and now they've lost two nailbiters. Eventually, the Nationals will play a game that doesn't come down to the ninth inning, right? Right? Perhaps that will happen tonight in the second of a three-game series against the Mets.…

  5. Beltway Baseball Live – 4/10/12

    Apr 10, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    The season’s only four games old, but already there are no shortage of compelling storylines for the Nationals. There’s the resurgence of Adam LaRoche. There’s the continued struggles of Jayson Werth. And, of course, there’s now the lingering question of Drew Storen’s elbow. Chase Hughes of and Amanda Comak of the Washington Times joined…

  6. Can Nats survive without Storen?

    Apr 10, 2012, 4:22 AM EDT

    Contrary to popular belief, there have been actual, recorded cases of big-league pitchers traveling to Birmingham, Ala., to have their arms examined by Dr. James Andrews and not ending up on the operating table. But it doesn't happen very often, and typically a trip to see the noted orthopedist results in some kind of surgical…

  7. Game 4: Nats at Mets

    Apr 9, 2012, 7:45 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo The fences have been moved way in at Citi Field this season. OK, so it's only three games into the season, but who would have predicted the team sitting atop the NL East at this early stage would be the 3-0 … New York Mets?! Yep, the club everyone expects to finish…

  8. LaRoche’s power stroke is back

    Apr 9, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Adam LaRoche has clubbed two homers in as many days. CHICAGO — Forget for a moment the Nationals' offensive woes during yesterday's 4-3 loss to the Cubs. Forget Jordan Zimmermann's efficient seven innings of work. Forget Gio Gonzalez's struggles on Saturday. And forget the dominant performances from just about every member of…

  9. Still searching for some early offense

    Apr 8, 2012, 11:20 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Danny Espinosa and the Nats have scored just three runs in innings 1-7 this season. CHICAGO — The Nationals don't seem to have any trouble putting runs on the board late. But early in games? Well, that's an entirely different story. So in the wake of a frustrating, 4-3 loss to the…

  10. Instant analysis: Cubs 4, Nats 3

    Apr 8, 2012, 8:43 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Jordan Zimmermann was sharp and efficient in his season debut, but took the loss. Game in a nutshell: Following their usual script, the Nationals did nothing at the plate for seven innings. Unlike the previous two games, though, they had no late magic and wound up wasting Jordan Zimmermann's gem and an…
