Associated Press photo A mob scene awaits Jayson Werth at the end of Game 4 last night. In a disconsolate clubhouse following Game 3 of the National League Division Series, Mark DeRosa suggested he might have a few words to say to his Nationals teammates before they took the field the following night with elimination…

At some point, as the at-bat dragged on and on and as he fouled off pitch after pitch after pitch, Jayson Werth lost track and had to sneak a glance at the Nationals Park scoreboard to see just how many times Lance Lynn had wound up and delivered the ball to him in the bottom…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals need to win today to keep their season alive. And so it has come to this. A Nationals team that won 98 games in the regular season now must win one game today to keep its season alive and force a winner-take-all Game 5 against the…

US Presswire photo Ross Detwiler will be asked to keep the Nationals' season alive.

Ross Detwiler…

Associated Press photo Pete Kozma’s second-inning homer gave the Cardinals a 4-0 lead. Updated at 7:25 p.m. They turned out in record numbers to witness the first postseason game played on District of Columbia soil in 79 years, and perhaps coax the home ballclub to victory in the pivotal third game of this five-game National…

Associated Press photo Frank Robinson received a rousing ovation upon throwing out the first pitch. The gait was perhaps a bit slower, the gray hair perhaps a bit thinner, the No. 20 Nationals jersey perhaps a bit more snug. But there was something both familiar and comforting when Frank Robinson walked to the mound this…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The postseason comes to Washington at last this afternoon. Eighty-eight years ago today, Earl McNeely doubled to left field in the bottom of the 12th inning at Griffith Stadium, bringing home Muddy Ruel from second base with the run that gave the Washington Senators a 4-3 victory over…

Associated Press photo Nationals Park is ready to host its first-ever postseason game. Though there was legitimate optimism surrounding the Nationals when this season began, it took some time before the city fully bought into the notion this team could win big in 2012.
