Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Ross Detwiler tries to pitch the Nats to a series victory at Camden Yards. BALTIMORE — How much is Ryan Zimmerman's right shoulder affecting his ability to play for the Nationals? Apparently not enough to warrant a day off right now. Yes, Zimmerman is back in Davey Johnson's…

US Presswire photo Edwin Jackson earned the win and lowered his ERA to 2.91 in the process. He's been the Nationals' No. 4 starter, technically speaking, since Opening Day. There is nothing about Edwin Jackson, however, that resembles a No. 4 starter. Fourth starters don't boast a 2.91 ERA in late-June. Fourth starters don't boast…

US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman went 0-for-4 Saturday night to bring his average down to .218. For weeks as he struggled to catch up to fastballs and seen his batting average tumble to depths not before seen during his career, Ryan Zimmerman insisted his right shoulder wasn't a significant issue. But after Saturday night's 3-1…

US Presswire photo Adam LaRoche singled in the second and homered in the fourth. Game in a nutshell: After getting shut down all Friday night by Jason Hammel, the Nationals pounced on Wei-Yin Chin early in tonight's game (though a costly, two-run error by Wilson Betemit played a big role). Adam LaRoche's leadoff homer in…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Edwin Jackson faces Wei-Yin Chen tonight at Camden Yards. BALTIMORE — We're four games into the six-game Battle of the Beltways for 2012, and by virtue of last night's 2-1 victory the Orioles have already clinched at least a split of the season series. For the Nationals to…

Associated Press photo Danny Espinosa and his lineup mates totaled one run on five hits last night. Perhaps you’ve read this story before: Jordan Zimmermann pitches well for seven innings but makes one costly mistake, all the while his teammates are completely shut down by the opposing starter. It’s become a broken record, and it…

US Presswire file photo Round 2 of the Battle of the Beltways begins tonight at Camden Yards. We have finally reached the final series of the Nationals' 32-game stretch against nothing but NL East and AL East opponents. They've already guaranteed they'll wind up with a winning record during this span, having gone 17-12 to…

Associated Press file photo Davey Johnson last managed a game in Baltimore in 1997. He's been too busy managing the first-place Nationals to contemplate such matters, so Davey Johnson was taken aback Thursday when someone mentioned it had been 15 years since he managed his final game with the Orioles. "Time flies," he said. Tonight,…

US Presswire photo Danny Espinosa delivers his go-ahead double in the bottom of the sixth. Every ballplayer has his own reaction when an opponent intentionally walks the batter in front of him. Some gear up even more than they normally would. Some don't treat it any differently than any other at-bat. Danny Espinosa? He gets…
