    Game 100: Nats at Dodgers

    After getting shutout by the Dodgers on Tuesday night, the Nationals will aim for a series split on Wednesday with superstar Clayton Kershaw (9-6, 2.51) on the mound pitching for Los Angeles. Beating Kershaw will certainly not be an easy task, but the Nats will have Bryce Harper to help their cause. The All-Star right…

    This week’s episode of ‘The Baseball Show’ featured a bunch of stuff on the Nats-Dodgers series, as it was an eventful one.

    For as historically dominant as Zack Greinke was Sunday afternoon, the Nationals — in a way — actually had the Dodgers right where they wanted them as the ninth inning began. They were only trailing 1-0, had the top of the order due up in the bottom of the frame and knew that Greinke was done for…

    Less than 24 hours after Clayton Kershaw carved the Nationals up to the tune of 14 strikeouts across eight scoreless innings, right-hander Zack Greinke followed suit in a 5-0 shutout for the Los Angeles Dodgers on a heat-soaked Sunday afternoon at Nats Park. Greinke had eight scoreless frames of his own to go along with a…

    Dodgers starter Zack Greinke continued a historic stretch on Sunday afternoon against the Nationals by extending his consecutive scoreless streak to 43 2/3 innings. That’s the fourth-longest such streak since 1961 and the best since Orel Hershiser’s 59 straight in 1988. He is just the third pitcher in the Live Ball Era (since 1920) to…

    Though Max Scherzer’s contract includes a signing bonus and deferred money, the final total counting against the Nats’ payroll comes in at seven years and $210 million.
