A frustrating 5-2 loss for the Nats on Sunday against the Reds, and Adam LaRoche continues to simply not hit. But Henry Rodriguez was like a little ray of comedic sunshine on an otherwise gray and gloomy day in Washington when he nearly hit Corky Miller with a pitch in the 8th, then followed that up with a pitch that ricocheted off the backstop and nearly hit him in the head. Enjoy the video above. Henry lasted 1/3 of an inning (1 run, 3 walks, 17 pitches, 4 strikes). File under: SMH-Rod. (Screencap via MLB.com) Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.

Washington Nationals pitcher Henry Rodriguez came dangerously close to having to charge the mound on himself on Sunday during a game against the Cincinnati Reds. In the top of the 8th inning, the right-hander threw a wild pitch. Oftentimes wild pitches lead to bench-clearing brawls. If Rodriguez’s wild pitch came any closer to his own head...
Nationals closer Henry Rodriguez has struggled with his wild pitches all season, and Sunday night against the Reds, it came back to get him — literally.
After throwing a crazy pitch over the safety net into the stands earlier in the month, Rodriguez followed it up with an even crazier one. On an outside pitch to Reds catcher Corky Miller, Rodriguez missed his own catcher, Kurt...

The Reds did well to avoid being swept by the Washington Nationals Sunday by taking game four of the series, 5-2.
Rookie southpaw Tony Cingrani picked up his second career win in only his third career start while Aroldis Chapman notched his fifth save of the campaign. So, at least the Reds can head into Monday night with some sort of momentum...
The Cincinnati Reds have officially sent outfielder Chris Heisey to the DL, a move that had been expected since he strained his hamstring on Saturday night against the Washington Nationals.
The Reds tweeted the move on Monday afternoon, also announcing the promotion of Donald Lutz:
Reds disable OF Chris Heisey (strained right hamstring). Promote from Pensacola OF Donald...

The Reds' Joey Votto called me over to his locker on Friday. He had something he wanted to say.
"Bryce Harper is pretty good," Votto said, smiling.
Initially, as I reported on the MLB on Fox pre-game show Saturday , I thought Votto was kidding. But he wasn't, not at all.
The quote you're about to read about Harper is not from some media myth-maker, but one...
Mat Latos outpitched Adam Wainwright, extending his scoreless innings streak to 17, and the Cincinnati Reds got an RBI apiece from Joey Votto and Xavier Paul in a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.
Aroldis Chapman worked a perfect ninth for his sixth save in six chances, finishing off only the third road victory in 11 games for the Reds and handing St. Louis...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tony Cingrani struck out a career-high 11 -- including four in one inning -- while pitching two-hit ball through the sixth, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Washington Nationals 5-2 Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep.
Brandon Phillips had a two-run single as the Reds (14-12) improved to a major league-worst 2-9 on the road.
Cingrani (2-0) pitched three perfect innings...
Washington (AP) -- Cincinnati left fielder Chris Heisey left the Reds' game against the Washington Nationals Saturday in the third inning with a strained right hamstring.
Heisey appeared to suffer the injury when he grounded into a double play to end the top of the second inning.
Reds manager Dusty Baker and trainer Paul Lessard came out to check on Heisey, who remained in the...
Tony Cingrani started the fourth inning with a strikeout, but the batter reached on a wild pitch. The next hitter doubled, and after striking out Bryce Harper, another batter walked to load the bases.
But as he always does, Cingrani kept attacking.
With the bases loaded, Cingrani threw only one ball while striking out Ian Desmond and threw only one more ball while striking out...
The St. Louis Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds have become some of baseball’s most bitter rivals. Being two of the best teams in the National League seems to enhance the competitiveness felt between them and there is a fierce ongoing battle between the Reds and Cardinals fans and players.
The St Louis Cardinals are one of the oldest franchises in Major League Baseball and have...
The Nationals had their first all around ugly game of the series against the Reds on Sunday afternoon. They still walked away from the game with a series win and a 4-3 season series win against the Reds. Ross Detwiler’s worst performance of the season was further exacerbated by poor defense and a lethargic offense in the 5-2 loss.
The Reds got to Detwiler early in the first...
(AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds didn't face Adam Wainwright in their visit to Busch Stadium earlier this month. They won't be so fortunate this time around.
Wainwright will try to help the St. Louis Cardinals avoid a season-high third consecutive loss on Monday night when these NL Central foes renew their rivalry.
Trying to build off a season-opening 4-2 homestand, the Reds...
The Nats offense reignited on Saturday following a game where Jordan Zimmermann pitched so well that the offense never even had to light up to earn the win. The Nats ran Reds starter Mike Leake from the game early en route to a 6-3 victory, a series win, and an opportunity for a four-game sweep in Sunday’s day game.
Dan Haren helped his own cause early on the offensive side...
