Bryce Harper will begin rehab assignment with Class A Potomac on Tuesday

  And so, after Davey Johnson and Bryce Harper famously differed in opinon on the timetable for Harper's first rehab start over the weekend, it seems Harper's take-it-slow stance has changed. Maybe Harper was inspired by the Bobblehead Day crowd? Regardless, he'll start Tuesday night for the P-Nats. Good for the P-Nats, who missed out on the Harper-Strasburg...

Zimmermann quiets D-backs in Nationals' 3-2 win

Jordan Zimmermann is staying away from any discussion about whether he should be part of the NL All-Star team, let alone the starting pitcher. That's fine. His numbers are doing the talking for him. Zimmermann dominated after a shaky start and rookie Anthony Rendon had his third three-hit performance as the Washington Nationals defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Wednesday...

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman says sore shoulder not serious

Using 'Ryan Zimmerman' and 'shoulder soreness' in the same sentence is probably a good way to scare a Washington Nationals fan, but the third baseman was quick to downplay concerns after sitting out Tuesday's game, says's Tom Schad.

Rendon, Zimmermann Power Nats To Series-Winning Triumph Over Dbacks

“Outstanding” hasn’t been a word manager Davey Johnson has been often attributing to games played by his Washington Nationals (39-38) as they have labored to float their record above .500. But on Wednesday night, outstanding is exactly the word Johnson used to describe their 3-2 victory over the leaders of the NL West, the Arizona Diamondbacks (41-36), in a game that secured...

A Look Inside The Nationals Archive

When I decided I wanted to write this post on The Nationals Archive, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to say about them or how I was going to say it, but I knew I wanted to learn more about the site that everyone in NatsTown, from fans to players to media, has started to notice. Earlier this week, I asked questions of The Archive’s eight members, and while I didn’t directly...

LaRoche homers, Nationals beat Diamondbacks 7-5

During a lengthy stretch when he pitched well but received scant offensive support, Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez said and did all the right things. Tuesday night his patience was rewarded. Adam LaRoche hit a three-run homer and Gonzalez won for the first time since May 5 as the Nationals defeated the Diamondbacks 7-5. The Nationals led 6-0 after five innings and snapped a two...

Are Braves Entering Crucial Stretch?

No one will dispute that the Atlanta Braves have had a really good start to the year.  They are first in the NL East and have one of the better records in baseball.  They are also the only team in their division with a positive run differential.  I still have one big concern though, that continues to bug me. Have the Braves done enough?  What I mean by that is have they given...

Nats Miss Chance For Sweep In Extra-Inning Loss To Dbacks

  Fire, rain and extra innings – Thursday’s game had everything but a rally by the Washington Nationals (39-39), who fell to the Arizona Diamondbacks (42-36) and failed to complete what could have been their first sweep since early April.
