  1. Instant analysis: Nats 9, Braves 2

    Jul 22, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman launched two more home runs to continue his torrid streak. Game in a nutshell: Perhaps reinvigorated by last night's win in the second half of their doubleheader, the Nationals stormed out of the gates in the series finale, scoring four runs in the bottom of the first thanks to another…

  2. Game 94: Braves at Nats

    Jul 22, 2012, 3:58 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats try to salvage a series split and increase their NL East lead to 3 1/2 games. What was the significance of last night's 5-2 win over the Braves? Well, instead of showing up at the park today in danger of getting swept and losing first place…

  3. Lannan rises to the occasion

    Jul 22, 2012, 4:17 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo John Lannan gave up two early runs but then shut down the Braves. For more than four seasons, he would take the mound every fifth day for the Nationals, the most reliable member of a typically unreliable starting rotation. He pitched well most nights, didn’t pitch well every once in a while,…

  4. Instant analysis: Nats 5, Braves 2

    Jul 22, 2012, 2:01 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo Bryce Harper and the Nationals were able to celebrate a much-needed win. Game in a nutshell: Mired in a three-game losing streak and in danger of seeing their lead over the Braves shrink to 1/2-game, the Nationals faced something of a must-win situation tonight. And they delivered with a gutsy performance, overcoming…

  5. Game 93: Braves at Nats

    Jul 21, 2012, 9:57 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER John Lannan faces Randall Delgado in the nightcap of this doubleheader. Must-win game for the Nationals? It sure feels like it after they've dropped three in a row, including the first two games of this NL East showdown with the Braves. Their lead over Atlanta has shrunk to…

    Jul 21, 2012, 9:05 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Bryce Harper reacts to fouling a bunt off his left ankle. Updated at 5:05 p.m. Bryce Harper was forced out of the first game of today’s doubleheader after fouling a ball off his left ankle, but the Nationals appeared to dodge a bullet upon learning the rookie outfielder suffered only a bruise,…

  7. Instant analysis: Braves 4, Nats 0

    Jul 21, 2012, 8:14 PM EDT

    Associated Press photo Edwin Jackson allowed only one run over seven strong innings. Game in a nutshell: Only 13 1/2 hours removed from a crushing, 11-10 loss, the Nationals took the field for the first half of their day-night doubleheader with the Braves needing a strong performance from starter Edwin Jackson. They got it, with…

  8. Game 92: Braves at Nats

    Jul 21, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Nationals Park hosts a day-night doubleheader today. Call me a hopeless romantic — and believe me, I've been called worse — but among the many things I love about baseball is the fact there's always another game to be played. Unlike football and every other sport, you can't…

  9. Nady DFA’d, Lannan recalled

    Jul 21, 2012, 3:32 PM EDT

    The Nationals designated Xavier Nady for assignment this morning, a move the club was forced into making after the outfielder’s 20-day rehab assignment with Class A Potomac ended. The club also officially recalled left-hander John Lannan from Class AAA Syracuse, utilizing MLB’s newly created rule that allows teams to add a 26th player to their…

  10. "It hurts. It hurts bad."

    Jul 21, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Davey Johnson called this "arguably the worst game I've ever managed in my life." In their first seven years of existence, the Washington Nationals lost plenty of ballgames in devastating fashion. They lost on walk-off homers. They lost on walk-off throwing errors. They lost on walk-off wild pitches. They even once lost…
