Reading Between The Seams:
Jayson Werth defended the young Nationals star, Bryce Harper to reportersTo say Bryce Harper is struggling would be one hell of an understatement. The sensational rookie has struggled this postseason batting 1-for-15. For those who struggle in the Math department, that is batting .067. Toss in some of Harper’s teammates inefficiencies at the plate and you have found a major reason they trail 2-1 in their series against the St. Louis Cardinals.Bryce answered some of these questions, with eventually coming to his defense.“We get some runs on the board early, keep on the pedal, we’ll be OK,” he said of trying to turn around the series, which they trail 2-1.And one more thing: “Our guys going out there and throwing some shutout innings, keeping their hitters off balance,” he said.“It’s real easy to sit back and say he’s pressing or that it’s too big for him,” teammate Jayson Werth said. “If he goes (today) without getting any hits, I’ll bet on him for the next day. He’s my guy.”The post Jayson Werth defends Bryce Harper, says he’s his guy appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.

SEE YA IN GAME 5
In Thursday's NLDS game four, the Cardinals and Nationals both struggled terribly on offense, combining for just two runs and five hits going into the bottom of the ninth. Jayson Werth led off the inning for Washington against Lance Lynn of the Cardinals, and battled Lynn for the first 12 pitches, fouling off seven pitches after starting out the at bat in an 0-2 hole. On the...

I'm seeing something a little disturbing in the reactionary media after the Nationals have lost two straight in the NLDS to the Cardinals. Major outlets are blaming Washington's struggles on Stephen Strasburg's shutdown last month and Nationals' rookie phenom Bryce Harper having a terrible series after three games. The Strasburg thing can be debated until death, but...
Nationals center fielder Bryce Harper has become the first teenager to hit a triple in a postseason game -- and the second-youngest player to homer.
The 19-year-old Harper tripled to drive in a run in the first inning, then hit a solo shot leading off the third, both against St. Louis Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright in Game 5 of an NL division series Friday night.
The only player...
No, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is not really tired or been possessed by the devil, nor has he crossed over and become a vampire or werewolf or zombie or some other member of the undead, no no need to sharpen up a wooden stake, arm yourself with holy water or arm yourself with silver [...]
Bryce Harper tripled during an early burst, then the Washington teen homered the next time up as Gio Gonzalez and the Nationals took a 6-0 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals after three innings Friday night in the deciding Game 5 of the NL division series.
A night after Jayson Werth capped a 13-pitch at-bat by hitting a winning home run in the ninth inning, the Nationals needed only...

Lance Lynn needed only a few words to describe a 13-pitch at-bat.
''Three-two heater. He beat me.''
There were more questions for the St. Louis Cardinals reliever, of course, but the answers were more or less the same. He went mano-a-mano with Jayson Werth in the bottom of the ninth inning of a playoff game, losing the battle when the Washington leadoff hitter put...
WASHINGTON (AP) Jayson Werth's Washington Nationals were as good as it got during the regular season, compiling a majors-high 98 wins.
That doesn't count for much come the postseason, where the St. Louis Cardinals excel. So what if manager Tony La Russa retired after last year's World Series title? Who cares that slugger Albert Pujols left via free agency? Just like...
