Stephen Strasburg hit a career milestone last night against the San Diego Padres. For the first time in his career, he pitched into the 8th inning. One of the best things about this start is that Strasburg was allowed to throw 117 pitches. This was just shy of his career high pitch count, in June of last season he threw 119 pitches in six-innings against the Reds. And over his 4-year career Strasburg has only made it to the 7th inning 10 times. For a Nationals fan and someone that truly wants to see Strasburg do well I love seeing that his limitations have been lifted. This outing will be, in my mind, a great step forward in his young career. Over the last few outings prior to this one, Strasburg has not shown the best mental state on the mound. But being allowed to pitch deep into the game shows that the Washington Nationals still have supreme confidence in their ace. So what’s next for Strasburg: complete game?

Good news: Bryce Harper is back in the Nationals lineup tonight against the Padres.

And so, Bryce Harper is out of the Nationals lineup for Saturday night's game due to a bruised left knee. Sounds like he'll miss the rest of the weekend in San Diego:
Bryce Harper will miss today and likely tomorrow with a bruised left knee. He had an MRI on his abdomen yesterday, which came back clean.

Stephen Strasburg can breathe a little easier now. With a 6-2 victory against the San Diego Padres on Thursday night, Strasburg garnered his second victory of the season, his first since opening day on April 1.
The Washington starter worked eight innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits while striking out four.

And so, despite pain in his abdomen after crashing into that pesky wall at Dodger Stadium, Bryce Harper is back in the Nationals lineup Thursday and back to "playing like his hair is on fire". In his first AB, he grounded into a fielder's choice and attempted to take second with his helmet flying off on a bad throw to first. He was gunned down, but not for lack of hustle...
Roughly four years ago, when the Nationals were playingmore like the Natinals, my friend and former (almost) best manDave (aka “Furniture”) made a friendly wager with me that, at the time, appeared safe for decades to come. Furniturespeculated that the Nationals would leave Washington, D.C. before they even appeared in a World Series game. Because betting money on sports...
The Washington Nationals had to place catcher Wilson Ramos on the 15-day disabled list Thursday due to a strain of his left hamstring. To take his place they have recalled catcher Jhonatan Solano from their Triple-A Syracuse minor league affiliate. Ramos suffered this same injury last month and missed a couple weeks. It is possible that he misses a little longer than that this time...
The Washington Nationals were expecting to get outfielder
Jayson Werth back from the disabled list on Saturday, but this will likely be
pushed back a few days as the slugger has experienced a setback during his
rehab, according to Amanda Comak of The Washington Times.
Werth recently experienced tightness in his hamstring, the
injury which initially sent him to the DL...
As expected after Wilson Ramos exited Wednesday night's game, the Washington Nationals have placed the injury-prone catcher on the disabled list. Ramos was on the DL earlier in the season with a strain to the same area of his hamstring he strained Wednesday. The team expects this injury to take some time now that Ramos has re-injured it.
Bryan Kerr of MASN says the team...

The Washington Nationals had runners on second and third with one out in the third inning when Denard Span hit a hard comebacker that ricocheted off San Diego Padres pitcher Eric Stults' lower left leg to first baseman Yonder Alonso.
Alonso tagged the bag and then ran toward third base, where Kurt Suzuki was hung up because Jordan Zimmermann had taken off from second. Alonso...
