Milwaukee Brewers

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

    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…

  2. Instant analysis: Nats 5, Brewers 4

    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…

  3. Game 96: Brewers at Nats

    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…

  4. 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…

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

    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…

  6. Game 95: Brewers at Nats

    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…

  7. 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…

  8. The Strasburg enigma

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. Instant analysis: Brewers 4, Nats 2

    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…

    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…

  12. Game 77: Nats at Brewers

    Jun 25, 2014, 12:22 PM EDT

    MLB: Colorado Rockies at Milwaukee Brewers

    Just over 12 hours after the longest game in Nationals history was completed, the Nats will pick right back up in Milwaukee for the final game of their series with the Brewers. Stephen Strasburg (6-5, 3.24) will take the mound in a 2:10 p.m. start, as the Nationals look for the three-game sweep. Strasburg will…

    If you couldn’t stay up til the final out was recorded at 1:34 a.m. EDT — or if you simply gave up after your TV inexplicably switched to a tummy tuck infomercial in the 14th inning — you missed a heck of a ballgame in Milwaukee last night/this morning. There were highlight-reel catches all over…

    Jordan Zimmermann grew up in tiny Auburndale, Wisc., about 180 miles northwest of Milwaukee. And tonight when the right-hander pitches for the Nationals at Miller Park, it’s believed the vast majority of his hometown will be there to watch in person. If history holds true, they’re in for a treat, because in two previous starts…

  15. Gonzalez shines in Nats shutout win

    For Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez, Monday night’s 3-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers must have brought quite the sigh of relief. The lefty entered the game with a 4.85 ERA after a recent stint on the disabled list. He later left hugging his teammates and pitching coach Steve McCatty in the dugout after throwing six scoreless…

    The Nationals left town yesterday evening feeling a whole lot better about themselves than they did after losing Friday night’s heartbreaker in 13 innings, having re-established their 1 1/2-game lead in the NL East. But now comes a new challenge on the road against a Brewers club that currently owns the NL’s best record and…

    Former Nationals outfielder Nyjer Morgan is attempting a comeback to the major leagues. The 33-year-old with the nickname ‘Tony Plush’ spent last season with the Yokohama DeNa BayStars in Japan. He last played in the majors for the Brewers in 2012. Morgan put up some decent numbers in his one season overseas, hitting 11 home runs in…

    Denard Span may have missed out on the coveted Gold Glove award for National League center fielders, but he has been given somewhat of a consolation prize. Span was named the Wilson defensive player of the year award for the Washington Nationals from Wilson sporting goods. The award signifies Span as the Nationals’ most valuable…
