Nats 4 @ Marlins 1.


Well, it was about time Roark fried the Fish sticks! Nats got all 4 runs in the 2nd off of Justin Nicolino: Zimmerman started the scoring with a solo home run, Ramos & Rendon had back to back doubles to make it 2-0, and Taylor made it 4-0 with a 2 run homer. Marlins got their run in the 4th on a Marcel Ozuna home run. Roark (3-3) pitched 6.2 innings allowing 6 hits, 1 run (on a homer), 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. Rivero (7th hold) and Kelley (4th hold) pitched 1.1 innings with 2 hits and 1 strikeout, while Papelbon (12th save) allowed a hit in the 9th in locking down the save. Justin Nicolino (2-2) pitched 5.1 innings allowing 6 hits, 4 runs, 0 walks and 2 strikeouts.


Game 2 of the 3 game series on Saturday. Joe Ross (3-3, 2.63) takes the ball for the Nats, who will be opposed by Jose Fernandez (5-2, 3.21) who toes the rubber for the Fish sticks. Game time is at 7:15 PM.

Saturday: Nats 2 @ Marlins 3.


Clint Robinson, starting for Zimmerman had a single in the 4th to put the Nats on the board in the 4th, Martin Prado tied the game for the Fish in the 5th, and Justin Bour had a 2 run homer for the final 2 Marlins runs in the 6th. Nats made a threat against Marlins closer A.J. Ramos in the 9th putting the first 4 base runners on, including a Ramos single to make it a 3-2 game, and than a Rendon walk loaded the bases with 0 outs, but then Werth, pinch-hitting for Espi in the 9th grounded into a really bad luck double play. It was hit just hard enough and close enough to the bag where Prado was able to step on the bag to force Taylor (pinch running for Ramos, the leading run) at 3rd, and because it was right at the bag, Prado still had time to force the tying run (Murphy) at home plate. If it's hit slower, they probably can't get a DP, but Prado could have tried the around the horn double play, which would have tied the game. Bad place at the worst time. Ramos escaped further damage by getting Loboton to ground out to first to end the game. Ross (3-4) pitched 5.2 innings allowing 8 hits, 3 runs (1 homer), 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. Jose Fernandez (6-2) pitched 6 innings allowing 4 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and 9 strikeouts. Kyle Barraclough (8th hold) and David Phelps (10th hold) pitched the 7th & 8th inning respectively allowing 1 hit, 1 walk, and 4 strikeouts combined. Ramos (13th save) pitched the 9th, with 3 hits, 1 run, and 1 walk, and escaped a bases loaded 0 out situation with that timely double play from Prado.


Sunday: Nats 8 @ Marlins 2.


Harper got the scoring started earlier in the 1st with a sac fly scoring Revere. A Murphy infield single, and Rendon double in the 3rd made it 3-0, while an Espi RBI single, and a Revere 2 RBI single in the 6th made it 6-0. Marlins got their 2 runs in the 7th on a Bour 2 run homer. Nats finished the scoring in the 9th with a triple by Rendon scoring 2. Max Scherzer (5-3) pitched 8 innings allowing 6 hits, 2 runs, (1 homer), 0 walks, and 8 strikeouts. Adam Conley (3-3) pitched 5.1 innings for the Marlins allowing 7 hits, 6 runs, 2 strikeouts, and 7 walks .


Mets open a 3 game series with the Mets beginning on Monday night. Gio Gonzalez (3-1, 1.86) takes the ball for the Nats while Bartolo Colon (3-3, 3.75) takes the ball for the Mets. This is the same pitching matchup from Wednesday night when Gio and the Nats cruised to a 7-1 win at Citi Field. Game time is at 7:05. Marlins play the Citrus series against the Rays this week with the first 2 in Miami Monday to Tuesday, and the next 2 in St. Petersburg Wednesday and Thursday. Even though the teams are the same, and the umpires are the same, the only thing that changes is the venue, MLB still treats this as 2 separate, 2 game series which I STILL cannot understand for the life of me.

Mets 7 @ Nats 1.


Nats got on the board first, but from there it was all Mets, all the time. Mets took the lead for good in the 3rd with a David Wright 3 run homer, Asdrubal Cabrera added a single, and Eric Campbell hit a sac fly to finish a 5 run 3rd inning, and Yoenis Cespedes and Neil Walker had back-to-back home runs in the 5th. Bartolo Colon (4-3) pitched 7 innings allowing 5 hits, 1 run, with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts, while Gio (3-2) got clobbered for 10 hits and 7 runs (3 homers) in only 5 innings with 0 walks and 7 strikeouts.


Game 2 is on Tuesday night, with the same matchup again as last Thursday in Queens when the Nats knocked Matt Harvey out in the 3rd inning on the way to a 9-1 win. Harvey (3-6, 5.77) goes for the Mets while Stras (7-0, 2.80) gets the ball for the Nats.

Mets 4 @ Nats 7.


Cabrera solo home run in the 4th for the first run of the game, but then after that Nats hit around Harvey once again; Zimmerman and Rendon had back-to-back home runs in the bottom half to put them on top for good, Harper had a sac fly, and Murph had a 2 run homer in the 5th to go up 5-1. Revere homered in the 7th, and Ramos homered in the 8th to finish with a total of 5 home runs on the night. Campbell had the other 3 Mets runs: a fielders choice in the 7th, and a 2 run homer in the 9th. Harvey got pounded once again, and now has an ERA over 6! Harvey (3-7) lasted 5 innings allowing 8 hits and 5 runs (3 homers) with 2 walks and only 1 strikeout. Stras (8-0) lasted 6.2 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks and 11 strikeouts. Rivero (8th hold), pitched 1.1 innings sitting down the 4 batters he faced with 3 on strikeouts, and gets the hold because it was a save situation when he came into the game.


Rubber game of the 3 game series goes this afternoon: Tanner Roark (3-3, 2.89) takes the ball for the Nats, and he'll be opposed by Steven Matz (6-1, 2.81) for the Mets. Game time at 1:05.

Mets 2 @ Nats 0.


It was the Steven Matz show for the Mets at Citi Field yesterday afternoon as the big lefty flummoxed the Nats, and the Mets escaped DC with a series win after losing 2 of 3 in Queens last week. David Wright homered in the first, and after a fielders choice on a Murphy error which would have been an easy double play ball to end the inning, Rene Rivera singled to bring home the second run. Nats got leadoff singles from Werth & Murphy to begin the 9th, but Jeury's Familia got the next 3 guys to preserve the shut out and the win. Matz (7-1) pitched 8 scoreless innings allowing 4 hits, 7 strikeouts and 1 walk while Familia (16th save) gave up 2 hits in the 9th with 1 strikeout. Tanner Roark (3-4) pitched 7 innings allowing 5 hits, 2 runs (1 earned on 1 homer), with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts.


Nats stay at home and open up a 4 game series against the Cardinals which begins on Thursday night. Mike Leake (3-3, 4.07) starts for the Cards while Joe Ross (3-4, 2.70) takes the ball for the hometown side. Game time at 7:05. Mets have Thursday off, and return home to face the Dodgers for a weekend set against the Dodgers which begins on Friday.

Cards 1 @ Nats 2.


3 runs in the game, with 3 home runs in the game. Chicks dig the long ball, huh?? Aledmys Diaz homer in the 4th, Harper hit a complete missile in the 6th that went up into the upper deck in right field, and Espi hit a homer in the 7th. Mike Leake (3-4) pitched 7 innings allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. Joes Ross (4-4) also pitched 7 innings and allowed 1 run on 6 hits with 1 walk and 4 strikeouts. Rivero (9th hold) pitched a 1-2-3 8th with 1 strikeout, while Papelbon (13th save) pitched a 1-2-3 9th to close it out.


Saturday continues the weekend set: Jaime Garcia (3-4, 3.59) takes the ball for the Cards who will be opposed by the 2010 million home run machine Max Scherzer (5-3, 3.80). Game time at 7:05.

Cards 6 @ Nats 2.


Carolina Knight said it all. Holliday drew a bases loaded walk in the 3rd, and than Stephen Piscotty followed with a grand slam to blow the doors open. Espi hit a solo shot in the 5th, and Harper scored on a Zimmerman double play ground out in the 6th. Cards finished the scoring with a Greg Garcia homer in the 9th. Jaime Garcia (4-4) threw 7 innings allowing 7 hits, 2 runs (1 homer), with 1 walk and 4 strikeouts. Scherzer only allowed 3 hits in 7 innings, but one of those hits was a grand slam and he had 4 walks with only 6 strikeouts for a total of 5 runs.


Game 3 of the 4 game series is tonight. Adam Wainwright (4-3, 5.77) takes the ball for the Cards looking to get on track this year, and he'll be opposed by Gio Gonzalez (3-2, 2.87) who will look to rebound from a clunker his last time out. Game time slated for 7:15

Cards 9 @ Nats 4.


Greg Garcia singles and then Adam Wainwright and Matt Carpenter had back to back RBI doubles to put the Cards up 4-0, and Zimmerman had a 2 run homer in the bottom half. Matt Holiday homer to left, and a Randall Grichuck RBI double got the Cards the 4 run lead back. Harper homered in the 6th, and Zimmerman got a homer leading off the 7th to make it a 2 run game again at 6-4. Matt Adams doubled in the 8th, and Yadier Molina had a sac fly in the 9th to finish the scoring. Wainwright (5-3) pitched 7 innings allowing 6 hits, 4 runs (3 homers), 0 walks, and 5 strikeouts. 6 was the magic number for Gonzalez (3-3). He only pitched 4.2 innings, but allowed 6 runs on 6 hits (1 homer), and 6 strikeouts with 4 walks.


Nats will look to even the 4 game series at 2 in the conclusion on Sunday. Strasburg (8-0, 2.79) takes the ball for the Nats, and he'll be opposed by another struggling top end of the rotation starter for the Cardinals in Michael Wacha who is a bad 2-5 with an unsightly 5.04 ERA so far this season.
