  1. Game 26: Giants at Nats

    Apr 30, 2011, 4:47 PM EST

    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…

  2. Marquis shuts down Giants, Lincecum

    Apr 30, 2011, 3:59 AM EST

    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…

  3. Nats bench in a pinch

    Apr 30, 2011, 12:06 AM EST

    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

  4. Game 25: Giants at Nats

    Apr 29, 2011, 7:31 PM EST

    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. Yes, the Nationals are going up…

  6. Distractions off field, success on it

    Apr 29, 2011, 4:08 AM EST

    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…

  7. Desmond returns, plus Zimmerman update

    Apr 28, 2011, 10:05 PM EST

    Shortstop Ian Desmond came off the paternity leave list today, rejoining the Nationals after missing two days for the birth of his first child. Desmond left the club Tuesday morning and made it to Sarasota, Fla., in time for wife Chelsey to deliver 6-pound, 11-ounce son Grayson that afternoon. He remained there yesterday before flying…

  8. Game 24: Mets at Nats

    Apr 28, 2011, 8:17 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nationals try to avoid a series sweep tonight at the hands of the Mets. Livan Hernandez has started 58 games Washington, D.C., more than any other pitcher since baseball returned in 2005, and few men who have toed the rubber at either RFK Stadium or Nationals Park…

  9. Harper sparks bench-clearing incident

    Apr 28, 2011, 2:18 PM EST

    Bryce Harper has had quite an eventful week. After his pro career got off to a sluggish start, the 18-year-old outfielder has gone on a bit of a tear. He's homered in three of his last five games, this after getting contact lenses upon learning his vision wasn't so great. He crashed into the wall…

  10. A ninth-inning implosion, a frustrating loss

    Apr 28, 2011, 4:52 AM EST

    US Presswire photo Sean Burnett couldn’t make a clean play on Willie Harris’ ninth-inning bunt. Jim Riggleman wandered into the Nationals’ clubhouse about 15 minutes after his team had completed a demoralizing, 6-3 loss to the Mets Wednesday night and saw at least a half-dozen players sitting at their lockers, heads down or staring off…
