"After how that first game went, that was a huge win. That’s baseball. Unfortunately, it’s a roller coaster ride, and we’ve been down it more than we’ve been up this year...But we’ve just got to keep going. Nobody’s going to feel sorry for us. We’ve got to go out there every day and try to win." (Ryan Zimmerman, via Washington Times, 7/27/2013) Mr. Walk-off strikes again. Video of Ryan Zimmerman's 9th career walk-off home run last night to salvage an otherwise miserable Friday for the Nats. Note that Zimmerman's home run was caught by a fan in a Ryan Zimmerman shirt.

WATCH: The Nationals’ Ryan Zimmerman delivers a game winning home run, walkoff style

It has been a tough season for the Washington Nationals this season, stumbling to a 50-54 record with only 58 games left in the season. Game 2 of a day night doubleheader against the New York Mets brought something to get the team motivated. In the bottom of the 9th inning, game tied 1-1 and a 3-1 count (one out), Ryan Zimmerman awaited the pitch from Mets reliever LaTroy Hawkins...

Nationals send Drew Storen to Triple-A Syracuse

Cruel, cruel, summer: Nationals send Drew Stroren to Triple-A Syracuse. "This is what's best for him. He'll probably have a hard time coming to grips with that. But it is the best thing for him." (Davey Johnson, via Nats Insider, 7/26/2013) And if Storen's father wasn't happy with the Nationals bringing Drew in for mop-up duty during the...

Zimmerman homers, Nationals edge Mets 2-1

Ryan Zimmerman homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning Friday night, lifting the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets for a doubleheader split. In the opener, Jenrry Mejia pitched seven scoreless innings in his season debut and Daniel Murphy homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs as Mets won 11-0. Murphy had two hits for New York...

Washington Nationals options at the trade deadline

As the month of July winds down, the trade deadline is now only a few days away. At this time of the year most teams are grouped into one of two categories, buyers, or sellers. The Washington Nationals however, fall somewhere in the middle. Currently sitting 8.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves in the NL East standings, any sort of a rental player does not seem like a viable option...

Nats tried to sign SS Desmond long-term this spring & will try again

The Nationals made a run this spring at trying to lock up star shortstop Ian Desmond but didn't reach an agreement Nats-connected sources said. While nothing appears imminent at the moment with talks apparently stopping once the season began the Nats still hope to keep Desmond who's had a very nice year and barely missed making the All-Star team a second time with an extension...

Nationals' Bryce Harper day-to-day with knee soreness

Washington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper left the first game of Friday's double header with the New York Mets in the fifth inning with a sore left knee. Harper landed hard on the knee after sliding to make a catch off the bat of Daniel Murphy. He made the catch and stayed in the game initially. He singled in the eighth inning but left for a pinch hitter after pulling...

Haren, home runs lift Washington to 4-1 win past Mets

Very little about this Washington Nationals season has unfolded as expected. Four days from August they sit three games under .500 and 81 / 2 games back of first place in a weak National League East. Their talented lineup has dragged down the rest of the team. Mediocre opposing pitchers have baffled Nationals hitters. One of their biggest offseason acquisitions a leadoff hitter is...

Harper’s walk-off home run against Pirates ends Nationals’ six-game skid

Bryce Harper barely remembered the end but he felt it. The details remained hazy — the ball bouncing around the red seats his raised fist as he rounded first base the mix of joy and relief that engulfed Nationals Park. All he knew was his body throbbed in the spot Ryan Zimmerman kept jabbing after his leap into a pile of waiting exuberant teammates. “He was punching me in the...

Nationals 14, Mets 1

Wilson Ramos hit a grand slam and rookie right-hander Taylor Jordan had six strong innings for his first major league win to lead the Washington Nationals to a 14-1 rout of the New York Mets on Sunday. The Nationals won their third game in a row and fourth in five to salvage a tumultuous 11-game homestand. They lost the first six games after the All-Star break, fired hitting coach...

Ramos’ Grand Slam, Offensive Outburst Power Nats To Victory Over Mets

Three games ago, Dan Haren declared the Washington Nationals (52-54) had reached rock bottom of their shaky season after getting pounded by the New York Mets (46-55) in an 11-0 defeat. From rock bottom, there is nowhere to go but up, and the Nationals proved this on Sunday by giving the Mets a taste of their own medicine with a series-winning 14-1 victory. Since that atrociously...

DMV: Bryce Harper Walk-Off HR

Your browser does not support iframes. Hopefully the Nats hit true rock bottom in the top of the ninth yesterday, after Soriano and Krol blew a 7-4 lead. And then Bryce Harper hit the first walk-off homer of his career in the bottom half. Nats snap six-game skid, stand eight back. [Nats Insider] Harper was so excited he high-fived a ghost rounding second base. [FTW] The walk-off...

Harper’s Walkoff Homer Lifts Nationals 9-7 over Pirates

Jordy Mercer, Josh Harrison and Gaby Sanchez collected three each hits in a losing effort. (Photo Credit: David Hague) Thursday’s sweep attempt of the Washington Nationals was one of the wildest games of the season.
