    The Nationals traded Jerry Hairston to the Brewers today, moving the veteran utilityman to a contender but leaving themselves short-handed in center field and on the bench for the moment.

    US Presswire photo Chien-Ming Wang struggled through the first inning but settled down after that.

    Jul 29, 2011, 7:51 PM EDT

    Updated at 6:46 p.m. Needing to clear a roster spot for Chien-Ming Wang to make his first big-league appearance in more than two years, the Nationals optioned outfielder Roger Bernadina to Class AAA Syracuse shortly before tonight's game. The option wasn't made official until minutes before gametime, on the off chance the Nationals made another…

  8. Slogging their way through a losing streak

    Jul 28, 2011, 10:34 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Ryan Zimmerman, who had four hits, tries to cool off on a hot afternoon. Their starting pitcher issued four walks, three of them to begin innings.
