“That’s something I tried to set out doing at the start of the season here. And I knew it was only going to be a matter of time where I was going to have one of those games where they hit it right to where we were playing and the defense made great plays.” (Stephen Strasburg, via Washington Times, 8/12/2013)

Up above: Vine (via @recordsANDradio) of Stephen Strasburg on the receiving end of a Gatorade bath during his postgame interview on MASN. (Clippard and Stammen with the bucket) First career complete game and an absolute gem for Stras: 9 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 10 K, 99 pitches.
Interestingly, a night after getting caught in Jayson Werth's Gatorade bath, Julie Alexandria appeared...
So Jayson Werth and Gio Gonzalez exchanged words in the dugout after the first inning Tuesday night. Above: the GIF via "Giants Gamer Babe" and the world. Steve McCatty and Rick Schu broke it up. Among the theories: Werth was mad because Gio failed to cover first on a potential double play grounder by Buster Posey in the first; Gio was mad at Werth for his own defensive...

Nationals 8, Phillies 5: Get on his back, boys. Jayson Werth appears to be hell-bent on pulling Nats back into the Wild Card picture all by himself (3-5, HR, 3 RBI tonight). Video of Werth's bomb here.
There's still hope...

It has not been a great season for the Washington Nationals or ace pitcher Stephen Strasburg. However, on Sunday, against the Philadelphia Phillies, Strasburg and the Nationals looked like the best team in baseball. Strasburg turned in one of the most dominant performances of his young career going the distance in his 68th start for his first complete game. He needed just 99 pitches...

Two darlings of the 2012 season will face off at Nationals Park this week, but both the Washington Nationals (57-60) and the San Francisco Giants (52-65) find themselves in drastically different positions than they were last year, when the Nats swept the Giants in Washington.
