    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: In order to avoid elimination and make something of their 2015 season, the Nationals will need a lot of help from the opponents left on the Mets’ schedule. But there is no question the Nats are holding up their end of the bargain. The Nationals took care of the Marlins on Sunday afternoon…

  2. Williams impressed with Treinen’s night vs. Marlins

    The 2015 season has been a trying one for the Washington Nationals, and reliever Blake Treinen is certainly no exception. The right-hander surprised many as a rookie in 2014 and look poised for a big sophomore season with the potential to lock down a late innings role. That plan did not go accordingly, as Treinen…

    The Nationals enter Sunday with a chance to take three of four against the Marlins and make it seven wins in their last eight overall. Stephen Strasburg (9-7, 3.98) will look to follow strong outings from Max Scherzer and Jordan Zimmermann. Strasburg had perhaps the best start of his career his last time out, eight…

    The chant began after Bryce Harper had rounded the bases in he bottom of the seventh, his 41st homer of the season having already landed in the second deck down the right-field to give the Nationals a 5-2 lead over the Marlins they would not relinquish. “M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!” With two weeks remaining in the…

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: For the third straight day, the Nationals dug themselves into a 2-0 hole against the Marlins after one inning. But for the second straight day, they managed to dig themselves back out of that hole and emerge victorious. With a 3-run rally in the fifth that included a home run by…

  6. Game 148: Marlins at Nats

    After a wild, extra-inning win last night, the Nationals are back at it this afternoon, looking to make it two in a row against the Marlins. They had their hands full last night with Jose Fernandez; today they’ll face slightly less-accomplished lefty Justin Nicolino, who owns a 3.81 ERA in nine career starts, none of…

    The meeting was brief, tense and essentially spoke volumes of what Max Scherzer is all about. In the seventh inning of a 2-2 game with two outs and a man on second base, Nationals manager Matt Williams made a visit to the mound — not so much to remove his ace, but more so to see…

  8. Nats relish a rare chance to celebrate

    Sep 19, 2015, 12:35 AM EDT


    As Jayson Werth crawled on all fours to touch the plate, his forehead bloodied, his uniform askew, his hair flowing in every possible direction, the Nationals came pouring out of their dugout to celebrate. Half of them approached Jose Lobaton, the man who lofted the sacrifice fly that made it all possible. The other half…

  9. Nats 5, Marlins 4 (10): Bullpen blows it, lineup saves day

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: The Nationals knew they were facing a stiff challenge, trying to beat Jose Fernandez for the first time in six career head-to-head matchups. It would require a strong performance from Max Scherzer, not to mention some timely hits. Thing is, they got all that but still wound up engaged in a…

  10. Taylor gets a day off, but has benefited from playing time

    Michael Taylor was kept out of the Nationals’ lineup Friday night, not because his swollen right knee was preventing him from playing, but because manager Matt Williams had been looking to give the young center fielder a day off and felt the time was right. With the Nationals scheduled to face a pair of Marlins…
