  1. Lamenting Lannan’s labors

    May 3, 2010, 2:19 PM EDT

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER This has been perhaps the roughest stretch of John Lannan's career. There is much angst this morning in NatsTown over the de facto ace of the pitching staff, who has pitched nothing like an ace so far this season. John Lannan may not have ace stuff, but he…

  2. Game 25: Nats at Marlins

    May 2, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    Photo courtesy Florida Marlins A win today would ensure the Nats' third straight series victory. How many times last season did the Nationals find themselves staring at a series finale, coming off two straight losses and desperately needing one win to avoid getting swept? Seemed like that happened at least once a week, if not…

  3. Game 24: Nats at Marlins

    Photo courtesy Florida Marlins The Nats go for their fourth straight win tonight at Sun Life Stadium. The Nationals left town on Sunday, staring at a somewhat-daunting, six-game road trip to Chicago and Florida. Well, four games into that trip, they're 3-1. And the only loss was a 4-3, 10-inning setback at Wrigley Field Monday…

    Apr 30, 2010, 4:04 PM EDT

    There may not be a more dominant 1-2 relief punch in baseball right now than Tyler Clippard and Matt Capps, who are as responsible for the Nationals’ winning April as anyone else. Read about the dynamic duo’s lights-out start to the season on CSNwashington.com.

  6. Storen promoted to Class AAA

    Apr 29, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    The Nationals have promoted Drew Storen to Class AAA Syracuse, moving the 22-year-old reliever one step closer to the big leagues. Storen, the 10th overall pick in last summer’s draft, dominated in seven appearances at Class AA Harrisburg over the last three weeks. He allowed one run and five hits in 9 1/3 innings, striking…

  7. No worries about Harper’s attitude

    Apr 29, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Despite increased chatter about problems with Bryce Harper's character, the Nationals have no concerns about the top prospect's makeup. A high-ranking club official said a recent report slamming the 17-year-old catcher for having attitude issues was "way overblown" and the Nats have no qualms about selecting him first overall in the June draft based on…

CHICAGO — With six innings of two-run ball today, Luis Atilano produced the seventh straight quality start by the Nationals’ rotation.
