    US Presswire photo Even when his bat shatters, Jesus Flores is recording base hits these days. This isn't the first time Jesus Flores has been asked to serve as the Nationals' backup catcher. He did it as a rookie Rule 5 draft pick in 2007, and he did it again late last season. It's no…

    Apr 15, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals seek a four-game sweep of the Reds and a six-game winning streak.

    Associated Press photo Davey Johnson congratulates Edwin Jackson at the conclusion of his 2-hitter.

    Apr 14, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Edwin Jackson continued this remarkable stretch of dominance by Nats pitching. Game in a nutshell: Another day, another brilliant pitching performance. Edwin Jackson was the latest member of the rotation to do it, going the distance while allowing only one run on two hits. Adam LaRoche had another big, two-run double in…

  5. Stammen thrives against hometown team

    Apr 14, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Craig Stammen has struck out six of the last seven batters he's faced. When Craig Stammen entered to pitch the top of the 13th inning last night, the Nationals reliever had no idea how many people in the Washington area were still burning the midnight oil to watch this 4-hour marathon. But…

  6. Game 9: Reds at Nats

    Apr 14, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Edwin Jackson and the Nationals try to make it five in a row this afternoon.

    Apr 14, 2012, 5:15 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo Jayson Werth is mobbed after delivering the game-winning hit in the 13th inning. He'd come to the plate six times, as had most of his teammates, and seen this game drag on deeper and deeper into the night, each side squandering what few opportunities there were to simply push across the one…

  8. Carroll DFA’d to clear room for Ankiel

    Apr 14, 2012, 4:04 AM EDT

    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. Carroll, 29, performed well in spring training and was frequently mentioned by manager Davey Johnson as a player who figured to significantly contribute…

  9. Instant analysis: Nats 2, Reds 1

    Apr 14, 2012, 3:11 AM EDT

    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…
