  1. Werth takes BP, Storen ready to return

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:22 PM EDT

    The Nationals’ two biggest roster additions this summer might not come via a blockbuster move at the July 31 trade deadline but rather the pending return of two key players from the disabled list: Jayson Werth and Drew Storen. Each recovering player is moving closer to a return from the DL. Storen could be activated…

  2. Solano likely headed to DL

    Jul 18, 2012, 9:42 PM EDT

    Having already seen four of their catchers miss time due to injuries this season, the Nationals are about to add a fifth name to the list. Jhonatan Solano will likely be placed on the disabled list following tonight's game with a strained oblique muscle, manager Davey Johnson said today. Solano has been dealing with the…

    Jul 18, 2012, 7:38 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jordan Zimmermann faces Chris Young tonight at Nationals Park. It's another scorcher on South Capitol Street, with the temperature (as I type this at 3:30 p.m.) reading 101 degrees and the heat index a very comfortable 109. There are, however, some serious thunderstorms approaching from the west, and…

  4. Submit questions for Beltway Baseball

    Jul 18, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    A wild, walk-off win on a wild pitch in the 10th inning. A newly signed first-round draft pick who hangs with Samuel L. Jackson. A feud between the most bombastic manager in the game and the most talented 19-year-old to come around in a long time. Oh yeah, and a team that has been in…

  5. Nats come back twice to win a wild one

    Jul 18, 2012, 4:14 AM EDT

    Photo courtesy of US-Presswire The 2012 Washington Nationals just will not go down without a fight. After losing the lead on a blown save in the ninth and twice being one out from defeat, the Nats beat the Mets 5-4 on a wild pitch by Pedro Beato that brought Ryan Zimmerman home for the walk-off…

  6. Instant Analysis: Nats 5, Mets 4

    Jul 18, 2012, 2:25 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Ross Detwiler tossed seven scoreless innings. Game in a nutshell: The Nationals won in walk-off style on a wild pitch by Pedro Beato. Bryce Harper tripled in the game-tying run in the 10th, and Tyler Moore was up with the bases loaded when the winning run came home. Ross Detwiler had perhaps…

    Jul 17, 2012, 11:05 PM EDT

    Davey Johnson updated the media on several injuries during his pregame session on Tuesday afternoon before the Nationals’ game against the Mets. Most notable is an update on Jayson Werth who Johnson believes could be cleared for “baseball stuff” on Wednesday. Werth will meet with doctors and his manager expects good news, he says he…

  8. Giolito relieved to start career with Nats

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:56 PM EDT

    When Lucas Giolito took his seat in the dugout for his first in-person media availability since signing a contract with the Washington Nationals, he opened the session with a genuine, “wow.” He had never been faced with so many cameras and microphones before and at times didn’t know where the questions were coming from. But…

  9. Game 88: Mets at Nats

    Jul 17, 2012, 7:40 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats return home tonight to open a key series against the Mets. After a somewhat disappointing four-game split in Miami, the Nationals return to D.C. for what has the makings of a very important homestand: Three games against the third-place Mets, followed by four games in three…
