Found April 12, 2013 on Nationals Enquirer:
It took nine games, but at long last the first Nationals player of 2013 finally received a shaving cream pie during a postgame interview on MASN (video here on MASNSports.com). Ryan Mattheus on the receiving end of a towel full of shaving cream courtesy of Drew Storen after contributing two innings of relief: Nationals 7, White Sox 4: Nats sweep White Sox. Zim makes Ventura pay for intentionally walking Harper to pitch to him. Dan Haren earns first win, kept the ball in the park this time around. Bring on the Braves. Should be a fun weekend.

Update: Nats players hate DC traffic, love the cherry blossoms

Cherry blossom! Very cool thing to see! #DC twitter.com/Bharper3407/st… — Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 10, 2013 Since arriving back in D.C. for the summer, several Nats players have Tweeted their displeasure with DC traffic; this week Denard Span Tweeted his complaints while stuck in a traffic jam on his way to Nationals Park. And of course, Wednesday night's...

Nationals 5, White Sox 2

Bryce Harper homered, Ian Desmond had three extra-base hits, Danny Espinosa provided his first two RBIs of the season, and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 Wednesday night to stay unbeaten at home. In a game that began 16 minutes late because, the Nationals explained, the umpires got stuck in traffic, Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann (2-0) limited Chicago...

Deja Drew?

"It’s the same thing that kind of got us last year, and why we didn’t maybe move on. Because we couldn’t close games out both pitching and defense-wise. We need to get better at that and learn from our mistakes." (Ryan Zimmerman, via Washington Times, 4/13/2013) Braves 6, Nationals 4: Bullpen blows late lead, Zim's poor throw did 'em in (video here...

Mr. 1,000

We'd be remiss if we didn't say *something* about Ryan Zimmerman playing in game #1000 for the Nationals tonight. Through all the ups and downs (and for a while, mostly downs) Zim has been there. And what better way to mark 1,000 games than with a picture of Zim's babyfaced 2005 Topps Rookie Card. Congrats, Zim. Here's to 1000 more. Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook...

Gavin Floyd hung a slider to Bryce Harper and now he’s never going to see it again

On a night when Gavin Floyd had great stuff to start with (he had allowed only an Ian Desmond double to this point), Bryce Harper was waiting in the weeds. What follows in the video is his fourth home run of the season, and 26th of his career. It tied the game at 1-1 in a game the Nationals would eventually win 5-2. When you look at Harper, he doesn’t look like a guy who has...

Washington Nationals game delayed because umpires were stuck in traffic

The start of the Washington Nationals-Chicago White Sox game was delayed on Wednesday night because the umpires were stuck in traffic. Seriously. The game was scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. ET but didn’t start until around 7:20 p.m. because of the umpires’ delayed arrival. The late start may have affected the rhythm of Nats starter Jordan Zimmerman, who gave up two hits and...

John Wall Redeems Himself With Much-Improved First Pitch at Nationals Game (Video)

Everyone deserves a second chance, and that’s exactly what the Washington Nationals gave Wizards guard John Wall on Thursday night. In 2011, Wall threw out one of the worst ceremonial first pitches of all time. This time, Wall got a shot at redemption. After Wall was reminded of his failure by the Nationals’ mascot, the Wizards point guard took the hill and lofted a pitch that...

John Wall Throws Out First Pitch At Nationals Game, Redeems Himself

Two years ago, John Wall threw an epically horrible first pitch at the Washington Nationals game. Let’s just say it didn’t exactly cross the plate. Thursday, he got the chance to redeem himself from what had to be one of the worst first pitches of all time. This time, the Wizards point guard went in with a plan, intending to “just lob it” this time. It worked much, much better.

April 11: Washington Nationals 7, Chicago White Sox 4

The Washington Nationals completed the sweep of our beloved White Sox Thursday night when they defeated the Pale Hose 7-4. The Sox are now 4-5 as they head back to American League play where they'll face the Indians and Blue Jays in two more road series. AXELROD’S ROUGH OUTING It wasn’t a good start for Dylan Axelrod, and in all honesty, he’s lucky it...

Nats Sweep White Sox For Second Consecutive Home Sweep

The Nationals successfully swept the White Sox with a 7-4 win in the final game of the series, and they remained an undefeated 6-0 at home on the season. It's another key win as the Nationals prepare to host their main rival, the Atlanta Braves, this weekend. Dan Haren had a chance at redemption on Thursday after having a disastrous Nationals opener in Cincinnati in what...
