US Presswire photo Ivan Rodriguez congratulates Drew Storen at the end of the Nats’ 5-2 win. No Ryan Zimmerman? On this day, no problem. The Nationals rode Jordan Zimmermann’s quality start, three hits from Jayson Werth and a clutch hit from Ivan Rodriguez to scratch out a 5-2 victory over the Giants today at Nationals…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jordan Zimmermann faces Matt Cain this afternoon at Nationals Park. One day after becoming the first team in the live-ball era to draw nine walks and get hit by three pitches yet only score one run, the Nationals are going with a little different look at the…

US Presswire photo Ian Desmond reached second on an error and scored the Nats’ only run today. The gut punch came 75 minutes before first pitch at Nationals Park, when the home clubhouse doors closed for a brief meeting in which the entire team was informed Ryan Zimmerman will have surgery Tuesday to repair a…

Updated at 3:48 p.m. Ryan Zimmerman will have surgery Tuesday to repair a torn abdominal muscle, a procedure that will keep the Nationals third baseman out approximately six more weeks. Zimmerman, who has been on the disabled list for three weeks since aggravating the injury while sliding headfirst into second base, was not making progress…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER John Lannan faces Jonathan Sanchez in a rare 4:05 p.m. game at Nationals Park. After Jason Marquis' shutout gem last night, what does John Lannan have in store for the Giants today? The left-hander hasn't been spectacular so far this season, but he hasn't been poor, either. Kind…

US Presswire photo Jason Marquis was brilliant in out-dueling Tim Lincecum tonight. Is it safe to say Jason Marquis has officially put his disastrous 2010 behind him? The right-hander certainly has done everything in his power to reverse the trend so far this year, capped tonight by a brilliant, 3-0 shutout of the Giants and…

The Nationals haven’t exactly been coming through in pinch-hitting situations this season. In fact, they entered tonight’s game with only one hit in 15 pinch-hit at-bats this season. That stat, though, doesn’t entirely reflect the performance of the Nats’ bench so far. Read Rich Dubroff’s story on CSNwashington.com.

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals will have their hands full tonight with Tim Lincecum and the Giants. A struggling lineup without its best hitter facing the defending World Series champions and their ace right-hander? Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? Well, maybe not.

Getty Images Ian Desmond is congratulated after homering in the fifth inning. Ian Desmond and Livan Hernandez are, in many ways, polar opposites on the baseball diamond. Desmond is all energy, a second-year shortstop who acknowledges he’s likely to vacillate between highs and lows over the course of a season, or even a game. Hernandez…
