Mr. Clutch Delivers in Tenth as Nats Top Phils

The Washington Nationals’ (50-42) first hit with a runner in scoring position all night was an RBI single from Ryan Zimmerman in the top of the tenth, as the Nats could not keep a lead Stephen Strasburg handed them but managed to beat the Philadelphia Phillies (42-52) in extras, 5-3. Strasburg was not at his sharpest, but still managed a good showing. Curiously, through the game’s...

Zimmermann Injured as Nats Lose To Phils

Jordan Zimmermann was ineffective and left early with an injury, as the Washington Nationals (49-42) fell behind quickly and could not deliver with runners on base and fell listlessly to the Philadelpha Phillies (42-51), 6-2. Zimmermann (L, 6-5) did not look right from the get-go tonight. He pitched a perfect first, but the Phillies started teeing off on him from there. In the second...

Philadelphia 6, Washington 2; 11 July 2014 (Washington 49-42, Philadelphia 42-51)

Photo Credit: zimbio.com The All-Star break is fast approaching. Washington has some business in Philadelphia. Friday night’s matchup would be an interesting one. Jordan Zimmermann versus A.J. Burnett is a marquee matchup in any circumstance. The Nationals entered the game dinged up, and it got worse as the game progressed. Ian Desmond missed the game after getting hit by a pitch...

Nationals dominate Orioles 6-2 in Baltimore

Playing their first game in an AL park with a healthy lineup, the Nationals had an opportunity to field a lineup built both with offense and defense in mind for a change. And both aspects of Matt Williams' starting nine played roles in this convincing victory at Camden Yards. A lineup that included Ryan Zimmerman as designated hitter thumped Orioles starter Bud Norris and reliever...

Three-Homer Eleventh Helps O’s Sink Nats

For a team with one of baseball’s best bullpens, you would not expect the Washington Nationals to be 2-8 in extra-inning games. Well, you might if you saw how they pitched tonight. After strong starts from Chris Tillman and Stephen Strasburg led to extras, the Baltimore Orioles (49-40) crushed three home runs in a six-run 11th, ending their dismantling of the Nationals (48-40)...

Bryce Harper and Denard Span exchange awkward postgame high five

Actually, to call that a high five probably isn't correct. But to say that it was awkward is. Guess it's understandable if there are some hurt feelings after Harper basically told reporters before Monday's game he thought he should be in CF, with Ryan Zimmerman in LF upon his return... And then there was Byrce Harper's hair (screencap via @recordsANDradio) ...

WATCH: Ryan Zimmerman hits a 2-run homer in the 16th inning

Since coming back from the DL and being placed in left field for the first time in his career, Ryan Zimmerman has struggled a bit at the plate. When he got injured he was batting close to 400 and was on a tear. Zimmerman hadn’t hit a home run since returning, but has at least transitioned pretty well to playing in the outfield. The 16th inning of last nights game against Milwaukee...

Tuesday night's loss ties for longest game in Miller Park history

MILWAUKEE -- In games that drag into the late hours of the night -- or into the next day -- winning makes it worthwhile, while losing is excruciating. The Milwaukee Brewers ended up at the wrong end of one of those marathons Tuesday night at Miller Park, as they squandered countless opportunities to win throughout the 16 innings it took to complete the game.

Washington Nationals continue to struggle against MLB’s elite

Before this weekend’s trip to St. Louis the Washington Nationals had won ten out of thirteen games and appeared to be hitting the type of hot streak that could propel them to a division title. Then Washington received a punch to the gut as a three game sweep by the St. Louis Cardinals brought the team back to reality. There is no doubt that the Nationals have postseason and possibly...

Ryan Zimmerman Is Enjoying Left Field, But Third Base Looms

Left field at AT&T Park in San Francisco is spacious — but compared to center field and right field, it’s not terribly complicated. No unusually high brick walls; no tricky angles. After Barry Bonds left the team, the Giants rotated some pretty mediocre defenders through left (and towards the end, Bonds was pretty mediocre himself). […]

Roark wins again, Zimmerman shines as Nationals top Giants, 6-2

Appointed earlier Wednesday evening as a short-time left fielder, Ryan Zimmerman watched the ball slice off Brandon Crawford’s bat and sail into the left field corner at AT&T Park. Tanner Roark stood on the mound, hoping another stellar start would remain unblemished. Michael Morse danced off second base, where he had reached on account of Zimmerman’s arm. Zimmerman reacted...
