Wait, Denard Span has a 21-game hitting streak? When did that happen? Indeed, see video evidence above of all 21 hits (despite the title of the video, there are 21 hits included, not 20).
Nats keep rolling, just six back in the Wild Card chase with 18 to play. Probably not the best idea to be selling postseason tickets yet, but at least there's still hope.

Up above, Gio Gonzalez and Adam LaRoche on seeing Gio's no-hit bid get spoiled in the 7th inning on a hit down the line by Zach Lutz past a diving LaRoche. So close. Here's Gio's reaction in the moments after the hit. LaRoche seemed to take it harder than Gio:

The Washington Nationals can breathe a sigh of relief. Once again, the news surrounding what could have been a devastating injury to their young star outfielder, Bryce Harper, was better than expected. He received the results of the MRI on his hip yesterday, and while he will have to miss at least two more games, things could have been worse.

Yesterday, we pointed out that Bryce Harper has no structural damage in his knee and is expected to be able to play after sitting out a couple games. What isn't clear is exactly how serious the inflammation in his knee was and when Davey Johnson will let him back into the lineup. Things got even more murky yesterday when Harper revealed that he was not allowed to speak...

The apprehension that once surrounded Jayson Werth has been swallowed whole by possibility. Back in the spring the Washington Nationals may have worried about the condition of his left wrist the natural aging process and the possibility his contract would become unbearable. As summer cedes to fall Werth could win a batting title land in the top five of an MVP vote or maybe even put...
For years Ryan Zimmerman never needed to overcome a baseball season. He drew comparisons to Brooks Robinson clobbered around 25 homers a year and earned a $100 million contract. He had nothing to endure. He existed easily in a hard game until this season. His throwing mechanics broke down his bat lost power and his confidence eroded. He wondered at one point if he may need to switch...
