    It’s just one game at the start of a very tough road trip, and it came against a Dodgers club exhausted after playing Sunday night in Pittsburgh that decided to sit several key regulars. That doesn’t make Monday night’s 8-3 victory in Los Angeles any less important for the Nationals. Truth be told, they had…

  9. Nats backing Storen after his tough weekend

    USA Today

    Life as a late-inning reliever is such that whenever a miscue occurs — however rare it might be — it’ll tend to be remembered far more often than a long stretch of dominance. That’s very much the case these days for Drew Storen, whose back-to-back tough outings against the Colorado Rockies has already begun to…

    USA Today

    The Nationals returned home last Monday with an opportunity ahead of them. They had just been swept by the New York Mets to close a road trip where they lost seven of 10 games.
