Associated Press photo Chien-Ming Wang earned his third win with 6 2/3 strong innings. The way he’s throwing these days, it’s easy to forget just how far Chien-Ming Wang has come in a short time. Only two months ago, Wang was laboring through a couple of rehab starts at Class AAA, raising some questions about…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chien-Ming Wang faces Brad Hand today at Nationals Park. The Marlins' dominance of the Nationals — they're now 49-18 against Washington since 2008, not to mention 26-8 at Nationals Park since it opened, 7-1 this season — defies explanation. So I'm really not going to try to surmise…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Stephen Strasburg dominated for six innings but wound up with another no-decision. He blew away one of baseball’s best young sluggers with a 99 mph fastball. He displayed remarkable efficiency that allowed him to complete six innings on a mere 61 pitches. And his command of the strike…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Stephen Strasburg makes his third start of the season tonight. Tonight marks the 15th start of Stephen Strasburg's big-league career, a small sample of outings that has seen the right-hander face 13 different opponents. In fact, there's only franchise that has gone up against Strasburg more than once:…

US Presswire photo John Lannan suffered his sixth loss in seven starts. Perhaps it’s a sign of the legitimate progress they’ve made — or, at the very least, the impressive sweep they just pulled off in New York earlier this week — that a game like the Nationals slogged their way through Friday night felt…

Michael Morse found himself Friday night in an unusual place: sitting on the Nationals’ bench. Then again, he also found himself in an unusual situation: slumping at the plate. Easily the Nationals’ most-consistent offensive player this season, Morse has endured through a mini-slump this month. In 13 September games, he’s batting a scant .189 with…

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats try to extend their winning streak to six tonight against the Marlins. If you've set foot outside at all today, you know there's a hint of fall in the air. The temperature has dropped, the humidity is down, the sun is starting to set earlier in…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER The Nats go for a four-game sweep this afternoon at Citi Field. Fresh off Brad Peacock's first career win last night, the Nationals are back in New York today looking to pull off a rare, four-game sweep of the Mets. To do that, they'll probably need another…

File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Brad Peacock makes his first career start tonight at Citi Field. Couple of significant (or not-so-significant, depending on your point of view) things could happen tonight in New York. 1) With a win, the Nationals would get to 70 for the season, surpassing last year's total. 2)…
