Jordan Zimmermann pitches no-hitter

The last time Jordan Zimmermann was on the mound for the Nationals he took a comebacker off his right shoulder.

Marlins ride late-arriving offense to doubleheader split over Nationals

The Marlins totaled more than two games worth of hits Friday. That wasn't altogether unexpected, considering they played the Nationals twice. The peculiar part was the distribution. After Doug Fister tossed a three-hit shutout in the matinee, the Marlins exploded for a season-high 22 under the lights. Four of those came during a five-run fifth highlighted by J.T. Realmuto'...

Nationals blow chance to accomplish feat no team had done since 1989

Pitching Falters In Nationals’ Lopsided Loss To Marlins

Just hours after they clinched home-field advantage in the playoffs, the Washington Nationals (94-66) took their first breath of the 2014 season.

Friday night’s contest was the antithesis of the clean, 4-0 win and complete...

Fister, Nats do enough right to get by Marlins

With Adam LaRoche back in the lineup and Ryan Zimmerman back in the dugout, the Nationals looked complete as a ballclub for this game.

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Sep 18

So, who’s the better start: Doug Fister @MIA or Felix Hernandez @LAA? That’s what the rankings are for! (They also say Fister by a hair.) R.A. Dickey @NYY scares me because of the ballpark and the long ball, but I think on average this is an appropriate ranking. Tsuyoshi Wada against the Dodgers could be an interesting start as LA struggles against LHP. Vidal Nuno at Colorado...
