    Sep 13, 2010, 10:33 PM EDT

    ATLANTA — The numbers say Drew Storen is pitching extremely well, certainly for a 23-year-old rookie only 15 months removed from college. His ERA is 3.17.

    Sep 13, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    The Nationals have reached the home stretch of the season, 19 games over 21 days to conclude a 2010 season that still could go either way. A week ago, the Nats looked like a safe bet to reach 70 wins. But five straight losses, including a sweep at the hands of the Marlins over the…

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jason Marquis was solid again, But Anibal Sanchez was better.

    Sep 10, 2010, 7:25 PM EDT

    Nyjer Morgan’s appeal hearing with MLB vice president of on-field operations Bob Watson took place this morning, but Watson has not issued a ruling on either of Morgan’s two suspensions, so the center fielder is free to continuing playing until that comes down.
