    US Presswire photo Edwin Jackson slides hard into Erik Kratz to end the bottom of the second. Game in a nutshell: Coming off an 8-0 trouncing at the hands of the Phillies, the Nationals hoped to get back on track in the second game of this series. And they appeared to get off to a…

  2. Updates on Zimmermann, Werth

    Aug 1, 2012, 10:30 PM EST

    Several injury-related items to pass along today, so let’s run through them all… The Nationals have decided to bump Jordan Zimmermann’s next start back to Saturday from Friday, wanting to give his right shoulder some extra rest. Zimmermann has been dealing with inflammation in the shoulder for at least a week, noticing it only when…

  3. Game 103: Phillies at Nats

    Aug 1, 2012, 8:58 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Edwin Jackson faces Vance Worley tonight at Nationals Park.

  4. On Harper’s prolonged slump

    Aug 1, 2012, 4:42 PM EST

    US Presswire photo Bryce Harper is hitting just .214 over his last 41 games. When Bryce Harper, following last night's 8-0 trouncing at the hands of the Phillies, described himself as "all over the place right now," he might have been referring to the 0-for-11, five-strikeout skid in which he's currently mired. He might also…

  5. Submit questions for Beltway Baseball

    Aug 1, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    July has transitioned into August, and that means it’s time both to look back at the trade deadline and look ahead to a pennant race that is about to turn an already-blazing D.C. summer even hotter. CSNwashington.com’s Chase Hughes and the Washington Times’ Amanda Comak will join me this afternoon for a taping of the…

  6. An off-night for inconsistent Strasburg

    Aug 1, 2012, 4:19 AM EST

    US Presswire photo Jesus Flores tries to calm Stephen Strasburg down during a frustrating start. Stephen Strasburg wasn’t thinking about the after-effects of Tommy John surgery as he slogged his way through a ragged, four-inning start Tuesday night in an 8-0 loss to the Phillies. He paid no attention to his right elbow as he…

  7. Instant analysis: Phillies 8, Nats 0

    Aug 1, 2012, 2:04 AM EST

    US Presswire photo The Phillies' Kevin Frandsen clubbed his first big-league homer in five years. Game in a nutshell: Stephen Strasburg on the mound. A depleted and demoralized Phillies club waving the white flag on the season. Might as well just pencil that curly W in the book before this one even gets star… er,…

  8. Rizzo: "We like who we are"

    Jul 31, 2012, 10:00 PM EST

    US Presswire file photo Davey Johnson and Mike Rizzo didn’t feel the need to make a trade today. Updated at 6:00 p.m. As every other NL contender around them made waves in the hours and minutes leading up to today’s trade deadline, the Nationals made a self-evaluation and determined their best course right now was…

  9. Game 102: Phillies at Nats

    Jul 31, 2012, 9:30 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The suddenly reconfigured Phillies open a series tonight at Nationals Park.

  10. Tracy activated, Brown optioned

    Jul 31, 2012, 7:17 PM EST

    With less than one hour remaining until MLB’s 4 p.m. trade deadline, the Nationals have added a key, veteran bat to their bench … just not via a trade. Chad Tracy has been activated off the 15-day disabled list, a move that brings the most productive pinch-hitter in the majors back to the Nationals two…
