  1. Three smurfy innings for Strasburg

    Sep 11, 2011, 10:31 PM EST

    Photo via Jesus Flores’ Twitter account Stephen Strasburg (in red) and others were forced to dress as Smurfs postgame. Much as he and everyone else would like to believe it, Stephen Strasburg knows he’s not going to have a perfect feel for his pitches every time he takes the mound in his return from Tommy…

  2. Game 144: Astros at Nats

    Sep 11, 2011, 3:10 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Stephen Strasburg makes his second start of the season today at Nationals Park. It's Sept. 11 in the nation's capital, and while this date surely brings back awful memories from 10 years ago, I believe it also brings back some incredibly inspiring memories of watching baseball in the…

  3. A swift and ugly implosion

    Sep 11, 2011, 3:34 AM EST

    Associated Press photo John Lannan was tagged for six runs in the third inning before getting yanked. The ball trickled about 40 feet from the plate, between the mound and third base, a little dribbler that might have allowed John Lannan to escape the third inning Saturday night without suffering extensive damage. Instead, the inning…

  4. Peacock likely to start in New York

    Sep 10, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Brad Peacock will probably start one of the Nationals' games next week in New York, manager Davey Johnson said today. Peacock — who earlier today was named the organization's minor-league pitcher of the year after going a combined 15-3 with a 2.39 ERA in 23 starts at Class AA Harrisburg and Class AAA Syracuse —…

    Sep 10, 2011, 7:36 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER John Lannan faces Wandy Rodriguez tonight at Nationals Park. Fresh off an 11-inning victory last night, the Nationals are back in action tonight against the woebegone Astros, who yesterday managed to lose reliever Sergio Escalona for the season after he stepped on a coach's glove during BP and…

  6. Extra security this weekend

    Sep 10, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Fans attending this weekend's games at Nationals Park should be prepared for heightened security measures coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. According to the Nationals, fans are encouraged to arrive earlier than normal for tonight's 7:05 p.m. game and tomorrow's 1:35 p.m. game against the Astros and leave backpacks, bags and…

  7. Small victories

    Sep 10, 2011, 3:58 AM EST

    US Presswire photo Jayson Werth is mobbed by Michael Morse and Jonny Gomes after his 11th-inning hit. It’s far too late in the season for a team like the Nationals to salvage the big picture. Even with Friday night’s 4-3, 11-inning victory over the Astros, this club is 10 games under .500 with 20 to…

  8. Strasburg’s remaining schedule

    Sep 9, 2011, 9:56 PM EST

    Stephen Strasburg is tentatively scheduled to make four consecutive starts at Nationals Park before possibly pitching the season’s final game at Florida. Manager Davey Johnson outlined the right-hander’s schedule for the remainder of the month, detailing a plan that has Strasburg (who debuted Tuesday night against the Dodgers) penciled in to start Sunday against the…

  9. Game 142: Astros at Nats

    Sep 9, 2011, 7:45 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The sun is out and the Nats and Astros will open their series tonight. Take a good, long look at that above photo. I took it a few minutes ago. Yes, that is indeed sunshine over Nationals Park, something we haven't seen in quite some time. Thus, the…
