    ATLANTA — Drew Storen took another important step today in his return from elbow surgery — one of his final steps — when he threw 40 pitches to live hitters in the cage at Turner Field prior to the Nationals' series opener against the Braves. Though the Nationals aren't setting an exact timetable for the…

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats open a big, three-game series at Turner Field tonight. ATLANTA — The Nationals' long, 10-day road trip enters its final leg tonight here in Atlanta, where the thermometer has been reading triple-digits all afternoon with no signs of cooling down. Into this caldron of fire steps…

  3. All-Star odds

    Jun 29, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Ian Desmond is making a late push for All-Star consideration. Fan voting for the 83rd All-Star Game officially came to an end at midnight, so if you were planning a last-minute ballot-stuffing barrage in support of the Nationals, you're too late. Not that it was likely to do much good. The chance…

  4. Instant analysis: Rockies 11, Nats 10 (11)

    Jun 28, 2012, 11:28 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Edwin Jackson gave up eight early runs but remarkably got off the hook. Game in a nutshell: Remember everyone was complaining about the Nationals' impotent lineup and its inability to generate anything of consequence? Nothing a few days at Coors Field can't fix. For the third straight day, the Nationals tallied at…

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    US Presswire file photo The Nats try to win three in a row at Coors Field this afternoon. Having thoroughly decimated the Rockies' MLB-worst pitching staff over the last two night, the Nationals today try to do it once again. And once again, they'll be facing a struggling left-hander in Josh Outman, whose name sounds…

  6. He might just make it after all

    Jun 28, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Tyler Moore is hitting .455 with four homers and 10 RBI in 11 games this month. Yes, the entire Nationals lineup has turned things up a notch or five the last two nights in Denver. Twenty-three runs scored in 18 innings? Not even the most cockeyed optimist out there could have predicted…

  7. Game 73: Nats at Rockies

    Jun 27, 2012, 9:58 PM EDT

    US Presswire file photo Jordan Zimmermann hopes to get plenty of run support tonight at Coors Field. After a record-setting offensive performance last night, do the Nationals enter tonight's game with any positive momentum? Well, the old baseball adage insists that "momentum is only as good as tomorrow's starting pitcher." So who are tonight's starting…

  8. A breakthrough or a blip?

    Jun 27, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Michael Morse collected four of the Nationals' 21 hits last night. As the hits kept piling up and the balls kept soaring out of Coors Field, the smiles inside the Nationals' dugout kept getting bigger and bigger. If ever a team needed a 12-run, 21-hit performance, this was it. For the first…

  9. Game 72: Nats at Rockies

    Jun 26, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    US Presswire file photo The Nats try to bounce back tonight in Game 2 of 4 at Coors Field. They've lost seven of 10, during which time they've scored an average of 2.5 runs per game while posting a collective .558 OPS.

  10. Rattled by the Rockies

    Jun 26, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg came undone in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Nationals' 4-2 loss to the Rockies last night was disappointing/frustrating/maddening/pick another adjective for a number of reasons, but let's focus on the two most significant ones… 1. Stephen Strasburg came undone during what proved to be the decisive bottom of…
