  4. Another step forward

    Aug 21, 2011, 11:51 PM EST

    US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman is congratulated after scoring the winning run in the 10th. In terms of sheer drama, this hardly stacked up to Ryan Zimmerman’s walk-off grand slam Friday night. Really, walk-off hit-by-pitches don’t make for timeless highlight videos. “I mean, you can just walk home,” said Zimmerman, who had the honor of…

I'll tell you what, though: I promise to refrain from making any mentions of all the Phillies fans invading D.C. today … provided it…

  8. Master of the moment

    Aug 20, 2011, 6:38 AM EST

    US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman gets a Gatorade shower from Michael Morse. The game had begun 5 hours and 19 minutes earlier, with far more fans in the stands, an ominous-looking storm hovering over the ballpark and no reason to believe it would ever get to this point. Yet there stood Ryan Zimmerman, at 12:25…

  9. Harper to 7-day DL, season likely over

    Aug 20, 2011, 12:40 AM EST

    Class AA Harrisburg has placed Bryce Harper on the 7-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring, a move that doesn’t officially end the 18-year-old’s first professional season but almost certainly ensures it. Harper was examined by a doctor in Harrisburg Friday evening, an examination that confirmed the hamstring strain he suffered Thursday in Akron.…

    Aug 19, 2011, 7:33 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Livan Hernandez faces Roy Oswalt tonight at Nationals Park. The Phillies are in town, which is a tough enough challenge in itself.
