How excited was Bryce Harper to give Ian Desmond a high five after Desmond returned to the dugout after scoring on Adam LaRoche's single in the 8th? Really excited. Based on the above Vine by the great @recordsANDradio: really, really excited.
Nationals 4, Braves, 0 (Game 2): Nats keep rolling, sweep doubleheader. No champagne for the Braves thanks to Tanner Roark. 4 back in the loss column, 11 left to play.

Young Nationals star Bryce Harper just keeps making age-related history. Thursday night he hit a three-run homer in the first inning. It was his 20th of the season. He's only 20 years old. He hit 22 homers last season.
If you can read headlines you already know this but we'll reiterate: Harper is just the second player in baseball history with a pair of 20-homer seasons...

Through the legs, 6-5, and Davey Johnson. The Washington Nationals are trailing the Atlanta Braves 5-3 in the bottom of the 9th in game 1 of a doubleheader on Tuesday. A Wilson Ramos infield single surrounded by 2 walks, and followed by a Chad Tracy groundout that scored Adam LaRoche, gave the Nationalsthe tying run on 3rd and the winning run on 2nd. In the midst of...
The Washington Nationals game against the Atlanta Braves was canceled yesterday due to the senseless shooting at the Navy Yard that took the lives of 12 innocent people. The Nationals play only a few blocks from the Navy Yard and decided to show support by wearing Navy caps during warm-ups in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. It’s such a minor thing to do, but it really...
It looks like Stephen Strasburg will be shutting it down early for the second year in a row. Last season, the Washington Nationals cut Strasburg’s season short with an innings limit, in hopes of reducing his risk for future arm…Read more →
The vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff greeted players in the Washington Nationals clubhouse before the game, handing out blue and gold Navy caps. Manager Davey Johnson and his players held those caps from Adm. James Winnefeld over their hearts during a pregame moment of silence, disturbed only by the sound of a helicopter hovering nearby.

WASHINGTON -- Shortstop Andrelton Simmons allowed Denard Span's grounder to bounce through his legs for a game-ending, two-run error, lifting the Washington Nationals over the Atlanta Braves 6-5 Tuesday in the makeup on a series opener postponed by a shooting rampage a day earlier at the nearby Navy Yard.
Pinch-hitter Chad Tracy had an RBI grounder against Craig Kimbrell in...
Most exciting play in baseball? Gotta be the walk of E-6. Up above, video of Denard Span's walk off E-6 to beat the Braves in Game 1 of today's doubleheader. Still 4.5 games (and 4 in the loss column) behind the Reds with 12 to play.

Up above, video of Keith Olbermann ripping the Nationals and MLB on his show on ESPN2 last night for not doing more to honor victims of Monday's Navy Yard tragedy. Olbermann's big problem is with the Navy hats Nats players wore before and after both games of Tuesday's doubleheader -- believes they should have been worn during both games:
"Navy hats: fine while...
Up above, video of Bryce Harper mashing his 20th home run of the season, a 3-run shot, which puts him in the 2013 Nats 20 HR Club along with Zimmerman, Werth, Desmond, and LaRoche. The good news last night: the Nats beat the Marlins and the Reds were idle, so the WC deficit got trimmed to 5 games. Bad news: The Nats have only 9 games left and pretty much can't lose another game...
Tanner Roark threw seven shutout innings, and the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 to sweep a day-night doubleheader Tuesday, ensuring the Braves leave Washington without the NL East title.
Roark (7-0) allowed just two hits, struck out six and retired the final 13 batters he faced.
Ryan Zimmerman hit a home run, Ian Desmond hit an RBI double and Adam LaRoche hit...
Denard Span will seek a piece of team history while trying to boost the Washington Nationals' faint postseason hopes.
Span will try to become the second Nationals player to register a 30-game hit streak in Thursday night's series opener against the Miami Marlins.
Span extended the longest hitting streak of the 2013 season with a single in the seventh inning Wednesday but...
Tonight’s game was a lot like riding a mechanical bull: after you’re in a good position, hold on for dear life.
An eventful first inning saw the Nats lead 3-1, but a hit-prone Gio Gonzalez and bullpen kept the game interesting until the very end, as the Nats (82-71) held on to win, 3-2.
With nine games to play for both teams, the Nats now sit five games behind the Cincinnati...
