File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats look to sweep today's doubleheader at Citizens Bank Park. Did you know the Nationals (after today's 4-3, 10-inning win) are 7-8 against the Phillies this season? Seriously, they've managed to hold their own against the five-time NL East champions. They're also 7-8 against the Braves…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Tommy Milone faces the Phillies in Game 1 of today's doubleheader. Remember when the Nationals' scheduled series finale at Citizens Bank Park on Aug. 14 was rained out? Well, they're back in Philadelphia today for an attempted day-night doubleheader to make up for that postponement. Problem is,…

US Presswire photo Tom Milone earned his first career win last week in New York. Perhaps the most interesting development around the Nationals this September has been the open tryout among a number of starting pitchers seeking to make their case for a spot in next season's rotation. Davey Johnson is currently using a six-man…

Associated Press photo Chien-Ming Wang earned his third win with 6 2/3 strong innings. The way he’s throwing these days, it’s easy to forget just how far Chien-Ming Wang has come in a short time. Only two months ago, Wang was laboring through a couple of rehab starts at Class AAA, raising some questions about…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chien-Ming Wang faces Brad Hand today at Nationals Park. The Marlins' dominance of the Nationals — they're now 49-18 against Washington since 2008, not to mention 26-8 at Nationals Park since it opened, 7-1 this season — defies explanation. So I'm really not going to try to surmise…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Stephen Strasburg dominated for six innings but wound up with another no-decision. He blew away one of baseball’s best young sluggers with a 99 mph fastball. He displayed remarkable efficiency that allowed him to complete six innings on a mere 61 pitches. And his command of the strike…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Stephen Strasburg makes his third start of the season tonight. Tonight marks the 15th start of Stephen Strasburg's big-league career, a small sample of outings that has seen the right-hander face 13 different opponents. In fact, there's only franchise that has gone up against Strasburg more than once:…

US Presswire photo John Lannan suffered his sixth loss in seven starts. Perhaps it’s a sign of the legitimate progress they’ve made — or, at the very least, the impressive sweep they just pulled off in New York earlier this week — that a game like the Nationals slogged their way through Friday night felt…

Michael Morse found himself Friday night in an unusual place: sitting on the Nationals’ bench. Then again, he also found himself in an unusual situation: slumping at the plate. Easily the Nationals’ most-consistent offensive player this season, Morse has endured through a mini-slump this month. In 13 September games, he’s batting a scant .189 with…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats try to extend their winning streak to six tonight against the Marlins. If you've set foot outside at all today, you know there's a hint of fall in the air. The temperature has dropped, the humidity is down, the sun is starting to set earlier in…
