  2. Zimmermann dazzles, but Lee wins

    Apr 15, 2011, 3:35 AM EDT

    US Presswire photo Cliff Lee carved up the Nationals during a 12-strikeout, complete-game victory. It’s entirely possible the Nationals won’t get a better pitching performance all season than they got Thursday night from Jordan Zimmermann, who carried a perfect game against the Phillies into the sixth and wound up allowing one earned run without issuing…

  3. Game 12: Phillies at Nats

    Apr 14, 2011, 7:27 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Jordan Zimmermann faces Cliff Lee tonight in the rubber game of this series. For all the hand-wringing over the ninth inning of last night's game, the Nationals have a chance today to do something they haven't done for a little while: take a series from the Phillies. The…

  4. Time for Zimmermann to shine

    Apr 14, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT

    US Presswire photo Jordan Zimmermann faces a stiff challenge tonight against Cliff Lee and the Phillies. If the Nationals are ever going to "close the gap" (as Jim Riggleman has been saying recently) on the Phillies in the NL East, they're going to have to be able to beat one or two of the elite…

  5. Game 11: Phillies at Nats

    Apr 13, 2011, 7:07 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats try to take out Roy Halladay and the Phillies tonight. The Nationals are riding a nice little wave of momentum right now, having won two straight and four of five, capped by last night's 7-4 triumph over the Phillies. Momentum, however, is only as good…

  6. Beltway Baseball – 4/13/11

    Apr 13, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Comments Off on Beltway Baseball – 4/13/11

    In this week’s episode of Beltway Baseball, producer Chase Hughes and I discuss the effect Ryan Zimmerman’s abdominal strain could have on the Nationals’ lineup, the effect Adam LaRoche’s shoulder injury could have on opposing teams’ baserunners and the effect Tyler Clippard, Drew Storen and Sean Burnett’s heavy workload could have on the Nats’…

  7. Tuesday night leftovers

    Apr 13, 2011, 2:58 PM EDT

    Photo by Bob Youngentob / Livan Hernandez authored another quality start and dropped a squeeze bunt. Jayson Werth got the lion's share of the attention last night, and deservedly so. He put together a fantastic performance in his first game against the Phillies, and more importantly led the Nationals to a 7-4 victory. There…

  8. Carrying the load, and comfortable doing it

    Apr 13, 2011, 4:00 AM EDT

    Associated Press photo Jayson Werth homered and doubled in his first game against his former team. The Nationals signed Jayson Werth over the winter and asked the $126 million right fielder not to carry this team on his shoulders but to share the load with the franchise’s other core players, most notably Ryan Zimmerman. Well,…

  9. Depleted Nats try to get by

    Apr 12, 2011, 10:38 PM EDT

    Their No. 3 hitter was placed on the disabled list with an abdominal strain that will keep him out at least 15 days, quite possibly more. Their No. 4 hitter was held out of the lineup with a mild groin strain, despite his insistence he could play. And their No. 5 hitter was a mid-afternoon…

  10. Game 10: Phillies at Nats

    Apr 12, 2011, 8:27 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER If the rain holds off, Livan Hernandez will face Joe Blanton tonight at Nationals Park. When you're going up against the four-time defending NL East champions, you'd like to have your best lineup available. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case for the Nationals tonight. Not only…
