  12. Blue Jays 8, Nats 0: Buehrle cruises, Jordan roughed up

    Jun 3, 2015, 9:17 PM EST

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: Needing a win to avoid their second straight series loss, the Nationals turned to Taylor Jordan, filling in for the injured Stephen Strasburg, and hoped for the best. They didn’t get anything close to the young right-hander’s best, though, and with Mark Buehrle in peak form for the Blue Jays, they…

  13. Game 53: Blue Jays at Nats

    Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER

    After nine consecutive series won, the Nationals are in danger tonight of dropping their second straight. With that on the line, they’ll send Taylor Jordan to the mound for his first big-league start since April 2014, at which point the right-hander’s stock within the organization took a major tumble. Jordan has turned things around since…

  14. Scherzer’s relatively off-night against Blue Jays

    In Tuesday night’s loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, Nats starter Max Scherzer allowed four runs through six innings on six hits. On some nights, that would be enough for a win for the Nationals, a team that ranks in the top five in the majors in runs scored. But it wasn’t enough on this…

He gave up three earned runs in…

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: After watching Jordan Zimmermann cruise through eight scoreless innings earlier in the day, Max Scherzer had visions of duplicating the feat and pitching the Nationals to a doubleheader sweep. Kevin Pillar and the Blue Jays had other ideas. Pillar homered twice of Scherzer, including a 3-run shot in the top of…

    With a taxed bullpen, a doubleheader to manage and the highest-scoring MLB team in town, the Nationals turned to Jordan Zimmermann on Tuesday hoping for a long and efficient start. They got just that, as Zimmermann carved up the Toronto Blue Jays in his best game of the 2015 season so far on a dark and rainy…
