  1. Nats 9, Brewers 5: Offense explodes to secure series win

    Aug 23, 2015, 4:39 PM EST

    USA Today

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: It had been nearly two months since the Nationals won consecutive series, and it finally came against two of the worst teams in baseball, but the Nats’ performance to finish the weekend was a convincing sign of progress, nonetheless. After dominating the Brewers on Saturday night, the Nats followed suit with a 9-5…

  2. Game 123: Brewers at Nats

    Aug 23, 2015, 12:15 PM EST


    The Nationals enter Sunday with a chance to win their second consecutive series, something they have not done since June 23-28. That is yet another mind-boggling fact about the 2015 Nationals, but here we are in August with the Nats hoping for an important series win against one of the worst teams in baseball. Jordan…

  3. Rendon springs to life with big night

    Aug 23, 2015, 12:04 AM EST


    Given his lack of production — shoot, given his lack of games on the active roster — this season, it’s been easy to forget about Anthony Rendon and how good he was for the Nationals last year and how good he still can be for them the rest of this year. The young man who…

  4. Nats 6, Brewers 1: Ross cruises, lineup crushes

    Aug 22, 2015, 9:51 PM EST


    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: The Nationals tried not to make too much of Friday night’s unsightly loss to the Brewers, which came on the heels of a red-eye flight from Colorado following a long West Coast trip. The proof, though, would hinge on how they played in tonight’s second game against Milwaukee. The answer: Well.…

  5. Game 122: Brewers at Nats

    Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER

    The sky is blue, the humidity is low, it’s a gorgeous Saturday in the District of Columbia, and there’s a ballgame to be played tonight. Can’t complain about that, right? OK, so there’s plenty to complain about right now as it pertains to the Nationals, who after dropping last night’s series opener to the Brewers…

  6. Two steps forward, two steps backward

    Aug 22, 2015, 12:51 AM EST


    If the Nationals were hoping the start of a long homestead would present an opportunity to bolster any optimism still out there for a late-season surge, they sure did little Friday night to back up the sentiment. Slogging their way through an ugly ballgame against an uninspired opponent, the Nationals were clobbered 10-3 by the…

  7. Brewers 10, Nats 3: Homestand off to ugly start

    Aug 21, 2015, 10:29 PM EST


    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: On the heels of a brutal road trip, the Nationals returned to D.C. on Friday night hoping to re-establish themselves as a legitimate contender for the NL East title. Then the game started and everything that happened afterward suggested anything but. The Nationals were rocked by a last-place Brewers club, done…

  8. Game 121: Brewers at Nats

    Aug 21, 2015, 3:30 PM EST

    Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER

    Well, here’s one way for the Nationals to open a critical homestand: With a surprise promotion of top prospect Trea Turner from Class AAA Syracuse. That move was not expected, at least not until rosters expand on Sept. 1, but obviously Mike Rizzo felt it was time to do something that might inject some life…

  9. Game 63: Nats at Brewers

    Jun 14, 2015, 12:01 PM EST


    After a convincing win helped by a strong start by rookie Joe Ross, the Nationals will look to secure a series split on Sunday against the Brewers in Milwaukee. They will have to do it, however, without Bryce Harper. Harper is out of the lineup after getting hit in the left knee with a pitch in…

  10. Ross steps up big-time, Harper keeps dazzling

    Jun 14, 2015, 6:00 AM EST


    The Nationals really needed a win Saturday in Milwaukee. So, naturally, they turned to none other than Bryce Harper to lead the way at the plate. And, not so naturally, Joe Ross on the mound. I mean, talk about an odd couple to carry you to victory. Harper, of course, we have come to expect…

  11. Game 62: Nats at Brewers

    Jun 13, 2015, 1:00 PM EST


    I wrote the other day about the need for the Nationals to get Danny Espinosa into their lineup, even if that meant putting him in left field. Well, he hasn’t been used in the outfield yet this weekend, but today he will make his first appearance at another position: first base. With Ryan Zimmerman on…

  12. On JZ’s bad start, Harper’s homer and Carpenter’s debut

    Jun 13, 2015, 6:00 AM EST

    Friday night’s game in Milwaukee — an 8-4 loss to the Brewers — won’t go down as one of the more memorable games of the season. It was another frustrating loss to a struggling opponent, and it continued the Nationals’ downward trend. They’ve now lost 11 of their last 14, leaving them a precarious 31-30…

  13. Game 61: Nats at Brewers

    Jun 12, 2015, 5:13 PM EST

    USA Today Sports Images

    Things did not go well last night for the Nationals, who blew an early 5-1 lead to the Brewers, with Tanner Roark fading as his start progressed, the bullpen giving up the go-ahead run and Aaron Barrett suffering what we now know was a biceps strain (he has been placed on the DL). But tonight…

  14. Game 60: Nats at Brewers

    Jun 11, 2015, 4:54 PM EST

    USA Today Sports Images

    It’s been a busy day already for the Nationals, who this morning traded for reliever David Carpenter and this afternoon placed Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day DL with plantar fasciitis, an unfortunate move that felt more and more likely as the week played out. Combine that with Ian Desmond getting his first day off this…

  15. Hitting, running, scouting combine to produce walk-off win

    Jul 20, 2014, 7:31 PM EST

    USA Today Sports Images

    They spend hours before each series preparing for the upcoming opponent, studying the pitchers they’ll face, going over each outfielder’s strengths and weaknesses. Oftentimes, all the preparation is for naught. But sometimes, the perfect situation presents itself to use all that advanced scouting and apply it with the game on the line. That situation came…

  16. Instant analysis: Nats 5, Brewers 4

    Jul 20, 2014, 5:15 PM EST


    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: With a chance to pick up yet another series victory, the Nationals turned to Gio Gonzalez, who had been dominant over the last few weeks. But when Gonzalez struggled to even get through the fourth inning, Matt Williams instead turned to his bullpen to pull this one off. Craig Stammen, Drew…

  17. Game 96: Brewers at Nats

    Jul 20, 2014, 11:30 AM EST

    Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER

    The Nationals have been playing pretty good baseball for awhile now, having lost only one of their last eight series (and that one’s a bit misleading because one of their four games with the Orioles was rained out, so technically they could still salvage a split after they play the makeup game). Today, they have…

  18. Roark continues to impress

    About three weeks away from the one year anniversary of Tanner Roark’s MLB debut, it’s still hard to comprehend what he’s done so far in his professional career. A former 25th round pick who came to Washington in a 2010 trade involving Christian Guzman, never did you see Roark’s name on top prospects lists. His…

  19. Nats take down Garza with 5-run first inning

    Jul 20, 2014, 12:10 AM EST

    USA Today Sports Images

    After watching his team rack up 11 hits Friday night yet only push two runs across the plate, Nationals manager Matt Williams could only shake his head and ponder the mysteries of this great game. “That’s baseball, dude,” he muttered following a 4-2 loss to the Brewers. Baseball taketh away, but it also giveth as…

  20. Game 95: Brewers at Nats

    Jul 19, 2014, 3:15 PM EST


    The second half of the Nationals 2014 season didn’t get off to a great start with a 4-2 loss to the Brewers on Friday night. On Saturday they’ll look to bounce back with Tanner Roark (8-6, 3.01) on the mound before Austin Mahone takes the stage for a postgame concert. Roark will make his 19th…

  21. Harper debuts new batting stance

    In his first game back from the 2014 All-Star break, much was anew for Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper. He had a new haircut that featured a mohawk in the back. He had a new saxophone-heavy walk-up song. And most notably, he debuted a brand new batting stance. Instead of bending his knees, holding his hands…

  22. The Strasburg enigma

    Jul 19, 2014, 12:20 AM EST

    USA Today Sports Images

    If you wanted to pick one start that seemed to epitomize Stephen Strasburg’s season, this might well have been it. Strasburg was dominant at times Friday night, striking out nine Brewers while walking only one. Yet he was done in by a couple of home runs and a key, 2-out, 2-run single that ultimately left…

  23. Segura on fan support; Roenicke on gloves

    Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura returned to the baseball field on Friday night for the first time since his 9-month-old son, Janniel, passed away a week ago. The former All-Star walked to the plate in the top of the second inning to an extended ovation from the 39,373 in attendance. Segura took a moment to take…

  24. Instant analysis: Brewers 4, Nats 2

    Jul 18, 2014, 10:07 PM EST

    USA Today Sports Images

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: The Nationals entered the All-Star break playing some of their best baseball of the season. They came out of their 4-day vacation a bit on the sluggish side. Stephen Strasburg served up a pair of early homers and despite settling down and churning out seven innings still departed with his team…

  25. Game 94: Brewers at Nats

    Jul 18, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER

    After four long days off, the baseball season resumes tonight, with the Nationals opening a brief, 3-game homestand against the Brewers before heading out on the road. Given the opportunity to reset his rotation over the All-Star break, Matt Williams decided to give the ball to Stephen Strasburg for the second-half opener. Strasburg will be…
