US Presswire photo Jayson Werth was declared the winner of today's presidents race. Jayson Werth's disdain for Teddy Roosevelt's losing ways in the nightly presidents race at Nationals Park is well-documented. Earlier this season, the veteran right fielder openly campaigned for the club to let Teddy win a race for the first time ever, suggesting…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chien-Ming Wang faces Brandon Beachy today at Nationals Park. The final home series of each season always includes a few bittersweet moments, and one of those will probably come today in the penultimate game at Nationals Park this year. Ivan Rodriguez is in the lineup and behind the…

US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg struggled early but rebounded to retire 10 of 11 Braves batters. A three-run first inning should not be a death sentence for most pitchers, who typically have plenty of time to work through their problems and often salvage a quality start out of the early carnage. The Nationals, though, can’t…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The forecast doesn't look promising tonight at Nationals Park. What could be the most significant game the Nationals play this season — Stephen Strasburg and the red-hot Nats vs. Tim Hudson and the wild-card-leading Braves — could be affected by something totally out of both teams' control: the…

US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman congratulates Michael Morse following his eighth-inning homer. By any measure, what the Nationals just accomplished in Philadelphia was nothing short of remarkable. A four-game sweep of the five-time NL East champs, on the road, with their four starting pitchers combining to allow three runs? Nobody saw that coming. Nor did…

US Presswire file photo Can the Nats finish off a four-game sweep at Citizens Bank Park? In their nearly seven-year existence, the Nationals have swept only a pair of four-game road series: the season-ending Oct. 1-4, 2009 series in Atlanta and last week's series in New York. With a win tonight, they would do it…

They've won four in a row, nine of 11 and tonight have a chance to pull off a stunning, four-game road sweep of the Phillies. Oh, and somehow they still have a mathematical chance to finish the season with a winning record (they need to go 6-1 the rest of the way to go 81-80).…

US Presswire file photo The Nats try to win their third game in 36 hours at Citizens Bank Park. OK, if you've been following the Nationals at all, you know the storyline by now: John Lannan can't beat the Phillies. Well, actually he's done it once in 16 starts against that hated ballclub from up…

US Presswire photo Drew Storen notched saves No. 39 and 40 yesterday in Philadelphia. Well, that turned out to be quite an eventful Tuesday doubleheader for the Nationals, didn't it? In sweeping the Phillies — winning 4-3 in 10 innings in the opener, then 3-0 in the nightcap — the Nats pulled off one of…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats look to sweep today's doubleheader at Citizens Bank Park. Did you know the Nationals (after today's 4-3, 10-inning win) are 7-8 against the Phillies this season? Seriously, they've managed to hold their own against the five-time NL East champions. They're also 7-8 against the Braves…
