Found September 10, 2013 on Nationals Enquirer:
Up above, Gio Gonzalez and Adam LaRoche on seeing Gio's no-hit bid get spoiled in the 7th inning on a hit down the line by Zach Lutz past a diving LaRoche. So close. Here's Gio's reaction in the moments after the hit. LaRoche seemed to take it harder than Gio: "I’m begging with [Hirschbeck]: ‘Make something up. Tell ‘em I called timeout before the pitch. Or interference. Something. Ah, it just makes me sick." (Adam LaRoche, via Nats Insider, 9/10/2013) (Screencap via MLB.com video) Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.

Washington Nationals: How to handle September call ups

The Washington Nationals and Manager Davey Johnson face quite a dilemma coming down the stretch in the 2013 season. How should the Nationals handle their September call ups? Most teams know where they stand by this point in the season. In the playoffs, in the midst of a playoff race, or out of contention. The Nationals, however, once again fall somewhere in the middle. They are not...

Gonzalez goes distance, shut down Mets

Gio Gonzalez was inches from a no-hitter and the Washington Nationals hit five home runs Monday night, including long balls by their first two batters, in a 9-0 rout of the New York Mets. Gonzalez held the overmatched Mets hitless into the seventh before pinch-hitter Zach Lutz broke up the bid with a soft single for New York's only hit. Lutz swung at the first pitch of the inning...

Nationals' Bryce Harper will miss at least two more games

The Washington Nationals can breathe a sigh of relief.  Once again, the news surrounding what could have been a devastating injury to their young star outfielder, Bryce Harper, was better than expected.  He received the results of the MRI on his hip yesterday, and while he will have to miss at least two more games, things could have been worse. Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider...

Update: Bryce Harper can't talk about his injury, but should play today

Yesterday, we pointed out that Bryce Harper has no structural damage in his knee and is expected to be able to play after sitting out a couple games.  What isn't clear is exactly how serious the inflammation in his knee was and when Davey Johnson will let him back into the lineup.  Things got even more murky yesterday when Harper revealed that he was not allowed to speak...

Mets held to 1 quirky hit by Nats' Gio Gonzalez

At least they avoided a no-hitter - barely. That was about all the New York Mets could say for themselves. Gio Gonzalez wound up inches away in a one-hitter and the Washington Nationals hit five home runs, including long balls by their first two batters in a 9-0 rout Monday night. Gonzalez held the overmatched Mets hitless into the seventh before pinch-hitter Zach Lutz broke up...

Werth, Nationals continue surge with 6-3 win over Mets

The apprehension that once surrounded Jayson Werth has been swallowed whole by possibility. Back in the spring the Washington Nationals may have worried about the condition of his left wrist the natural aging process and the possibility his contract would become unbearable. As summer cedes to fall Werth could win a batting title land in the top five of an MVP vote or maybe even put...

Watch all 21 hits of Denard Span's 21-game hitting streak

Wait, Denard Span has a 21-game hitting streak? When did that happen? Indeed, see video evidence above of all 21 hits (despite the title of the video, there are 21 hits included, not 20). Nats keep rolling, just six back in the Wild Card chase with 18 to play. Probably not the best idea to be selling postseason tickets yet, but at least there's still hope. (Screencap...

When a one-hitter gets lost in the sports shuffle

Maybe you didn’t hear about Gio Gonzalez’s one-hitter on Monday night. I wouldn’t blame you if you haven’t. A pinch-hitter in the seventh inning killed Gonzalez’s bid for a no-hitter with a bloop single that picked up chalk on the first-base line. The Washington Nationals went on to wallop the New York Mets, 9-1. It was an obvious must-win game for the Nationals who hold...

Game Preview: Nationals vs Mets

The Mets come back to New York and are bringing the Nationals with them tonight. The Mets could really mess up the Nationals playoff push with a good series this week as the Amazin’s look to build off of yesterday’s win in Cleveland. A few new players will be also joining the Mets tomorrow as Harang, Baxter and Centero come aboard. Tonight Carlos Torres gets the start as he goes...

Nationals-Mets Preview

The Washington Nationals know time is running out to make a late run to the wild card. They'll try to win their third straight game and fifth in six overall Monday when they visit the New York Mets.
