    After their 2013 season uncovered a glaring need for lefty relievers, the Nationals made sure they fixed the problem this offseason.

    One of the toughest tasks for any first-time manager is bullpen usage, and that figures to be among the more intriguing aspects of Matt Williams’ inaugural season as skipper of the Nationals. Williams inherits a Washington bullpen loaded at the back end with three right-handers who have all enjoyed success as a closer in the…

    NEW YORK — The two most important moments from Tuesday night’s win weren’t home runs by Jayson Werth and Adam LaRoche. They weren’t scoreless innings of relief from Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano. And they weren’t LaRoche and Scott Hairston crossing the plate with insurance runs in the top of the ninth. No, the two…

    PHILADELPHIA — If the Nationals’ season ends Sept. 29 in disappointing fashion, they undoubtedly will look back at the countless games they lost because they couldn’t deliver in key situations, whether at the plate, on the mound or especially in the field.
