Phillies 6 @ Nats 9.


Phillies got 2 in the 2nd on back-to-back singles from Cody Asche and Tyler Goeddell, and Tommy Joseph added a 2 run homer in the 3rd to put the Fightins' up 4-0. 2 run double from Werth in the 3rd cut the lead in half, and Ramos & Drew had back-to-back home runs in the 4th to tie it at 4. Murph gave the Nats the lead for good in the 5th with a 2 run double, Espi homered in the 6th to make it a 3 run game, and Murphy & Drew doubles in the 7th made it 9-4. Joseph had his second 2 run homer of the night in the 8th off of Rivero to make it a save situation for Papelbon in the 9th. Jeremy Hellickson (4-4) allowed 9 hits and 7 runs (3 homers) with 3 walks and 2 strikeouts in 6 innings. Strasburg (10-0) allowed 5 hits, 4 runs (1 homer), 1 walk and 10 strikeouts in 7 innings becoming the first pitcher in baseball this year to record 10 wins (Chris Sale matched him later on in the night, but the Nats game ended first)! Papelbon (16th save) pitched a hitless 9th with 1 walk and 1 strikeout.


Game 2 of the series this afternoon with a weird 12:05 start time. Hey, breakfast & beer with the Nats today . Aaron Nola (5-4, 2.65) starts for the Phillies, and he'll be opposed by Tanner Roark (4-4, 3.21) for the Nats.

Phillies 0 @ Nats 8.


Nats got half the runs in the 2nd: Drew single scored 1, a Roark sacrifice scored 1, and Taylor & Harper had back-to-back singles that brought home the final 2 runs of the inning. 2 run double by Rendon in the 5th added 2 more, and a Drew sac fly added the 7th run, while a Revere sac fly in the 8th added the final run. Nola (5-5) got knocked out in the 4th inning pitching 3.2 with 7 hits, 4 runs, 3 strikeouts and 1 walk. Roark (5-4) pitched 7 scoreless innings scattering 6 hits with 1 walk and 7 strikeouts.


Nats go for the sweep tomorrow afternoon. Joe Ross (5-4, 2.92) starts for the Nats, and he'll be opposed by Adam Morgan (1-5, 6.70) for the Phillies, game time at 4:05. Apparently the Nats dream gala event is Saturday night which is the reason the Saturday game started at 12:05, and the Sunday game starts at 4:05. As it is, some weird start times on the table for Sunday: Phils/Nats at 4:05, Cardinals/Pirates at 5:05, and Dodgers/Giants at 8:35. I'm pretty sure the Cardinals/Pirates game was supposed to be the originally scheduled ESPN Sunday night game, but since the Penguins are playing game 6 of the Stanley Cup, ESPN actually did something right and put that game on in the afternoon, so the Pirates fans can get home and watch the hockey game, so they added the Giants/Dodgers to fill in at night.

Phillies 4 @ Nats 5.


Nats got 2 sac fly's in the 1st after a hit and 2 walks from Adam Morgan, the first from Zimmerman, and the second from Ramos, and Espi added a home run for the 3rd run in the 3rd. Cody Asche homered for the Phillies to cut the lead to 3-1, Odubel Herrerra doubled home Morgan who helped himself with a double in the 6th to make it 3-2, and then next batter Freddy Galvis singled home Herrerra to make it a 3-3 game. Maikel Franco gave the Phillies the lead with a solo homer off of Papelbon in the 9th, and in the bottom half of the 9th following a Rendon fly out, the Nats had 2 singles (from Haper & Espi) and a Robinson walk sandwiched around a Revere line out. With the bases loaded and 2 outs down 1, Werth got the game winning single to center which scored Harper & Revere and completed the sweep. The starters Joe Ross & Morgan both got no decisions allowing 6 runs on 10 hits (2 homers) in 13 2/3's innings combined with 3 walks (all via Morgan) and 16 strikeouts. Papelbon (1-2) picked up the win with the 1 homer the only runner that reached base. Jeanmar Gomez (2-2, 2nd blown save) allowed 2 runs on 3 hits with 1 walk and 0 strikeouts in 2/3's of an inning and allowed 4 of the 6 batters he faced to reach base.


Nats stay at home and welcome the Cubs into Nats park for a 3 game series beginning on Monday. The good news: The Nats miss both Lester & Arrietta. The bad news: Lackey, Hammel & Hendricks are still pretty good too, which is why they are a 43 win team and leading their division by 9 games. Max Scherzer (7-4, 3.57) takes the ball for the Nats, while the bats will take hacks off of Kyle Hendricks (4-5, 2.90). Game time scheduled for 7:05. Phillies play the interleague "rivalry" series against Toronto this weekend. They start in Toronto for 2 games Monday night & Tuesday afternoon before returning to Philadelphia for the final 2 games Wednesday & Thursday night.

Cubs 1 @ Nats 4.


Nats got an unearned run in the 3rd, when Harper singled to center and Werth scored on a Dexter Fowler throwing error. Max Scherzer had retired the first 16 Cubs before Addison Russel homered with 1 out in the 6th to break up the shut out, perfect game, and the lead. Nats won the game in the bottom half of the 6 with a Ramos homer being the game-winner, and they also got RBI singles from Espi & Revere for the final margin. Scherzer (8-4) pitched 7 innings allowing 1 run on 2 hits (1 homer) with 0 walks and 11 strikeouts. He struck out 9 of the first 10 batters he faced, and retired the first 16 batters overall he faced. Perez (7th hold) faced 1 batter and struck him out, while Kelley (1st save) pitched the last 1 2/3's for his first save of the season striking out 4 of the 5 batters that stepped up to plate against him. Kyle Hendricks (4-6) pitched 5.1 allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits (1 homer) with 4 walks and 4 strikeouts. Nats become the 2nd team to reach 40 wins this year.


Second game of the season series tonight: John Lackey (7-2, 2.63) takes the ball for the Cubs, while the Nats will hand the ball to Gio Gonzalez (3-5, 3.93). Game time slated for 7:05.

Cubs 4 @ Nats 3.


Nats got 3 sac flies for their only 3 runs, and that's one of the reasons they lost, could not get that big hit they've been getting most of this year. After Cubs starter John Lackey had a 2 out single, him & Dexter Fowler scored on a single by Jason Heyward to make it 2-0 Cubs. Werth added a sac fly in the bottom half to cut the deficit to 2-1. Cubs got the 2 run lead back in the 4th on a David Ross single. Revere (7th) and Rendon (8th) tied the game on sac flies. Albert Almora, batting for only the 12th time in his career after Joe Maddon doubled switched Ben Zobrist out of the game and making about 50 defensive changes got the game-winning hit in the 9th with a double. Lackey and Gio combined to pitch 12 1/3 allowing 5 runs on 9 hits with 6 walks, and 16 strikeouts and each received no decisions. Pedro Strop (13th hold) and Travis Wood (4th hold) pitched 1 1/3 allowing 1 run on 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. Hector Rondon (1-1, 1st blown save) gave up the sac fly to Rendon but he pitched the 9th to close out the win and allowed 1 hit and 1 strikeout in 1 2/3's of an inning. Solis (1-2) pitched 2 innings allowing 1 run on 2 hits with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts.


Rubber game, and the final series of the season....regular season at least goes Wednesday. Perennial Nats killer Jason Hammel (7-2, 2.36) takes the ball for the Nats and he'll be opposed by Stephen Strasburg (10-0, 3.03). Hammel is 9-0 in 12 career starts against the Nationals, the most wins by any pitcher against 1 team without a loss, however his last start against Washington (May 7) he allowed 3 runs in 5 innings and left trailing before the Cubs came back late and won. Game time goes at 4:05.

Cubs 4 @ Nats 5 (12 innings).


Ben Zobrist homered leading off the game for an inauspicious start, before Revere scored on a Jason Hammel wild pitch for a 1-1 game after 2. Then the starting pitchers Hammel & Stephen Strasburg shut it down from there for the next 6 innings. However, once the starters exited, the game got interesting. Stephen Drew hit a solo homer in the 8th to put the Nats up 2-1 heading into the 9th. Anthony Rizzo put the Cubs in front 3-2 with a 2 run homer, and with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th Ramos tied the game with a single. Addison Russell singled home the Cubs 4th run in the top of the 12th. With 1 out in the bottom of the 12th, Taylor single, and with 2 outs, Werth had his second walk off hit of the homestand with 2 outs when his single to center scored Taylor. Hammel & Strasburg each pitched 7 innings allowing 1 run each on 5 & 6 hits respectively with 0 walks & 4 strikeouts for Hammel and 8 strikeouts, 1 walk & 1 homer for Strasburg. I don't even think Lester or Arrieta could've pitched a better game than Hammel did, both starters were outstanding! Hector Rondon (2nd blown save in as many nights) pitched the 9th allowing 1 run on 1 hit with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. Trevor Cahill (0-2) pitched 1 inning allowing 2 runs on 1 hit with 2 strikeouts and 0 walks. Perez (1st blown save) faced 2 batters allowing 1 run on 1 hit with 1 home run allowed. Yusmeiro Petit (2-0) pitched 2 innings allowing 1 run on 2 hits with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts.


Nats make their first of 3 West Coast trips this year. This one see's them play 4 in San Diego, & 3 in Los Angeles before stopping off in Milwaukee on the way back East to play 3 with the Brewers. In late July they'll head out to San Francisco & Arizona and stop in Cleveland on the way there, and than in the middle of August they head out to Colorado to face the Rockies. Thursday's opening game in San Diego see's Tanner Roark (5-4, 2.93) start for the Nats and he'll be opposed by Erik Johnson (0-1, 9.64; 0-3, 7.71 overall). Johnson came over from the White Sox in the James Shields trade. Game time slated for 10:10 PM. Last year when they played the first game in San Diego, it was the first rain delay they had had at Petco Park in like 8 years, game didn't end up starting until like 1:30 AM Eastern time and ended around 4:15. Hopefully it starts right on schedule tonight . Cubs are off Thursday and head home to play 3 games with the Pirates beginning on Friday with the annual Friday afternoon matinee in Wrigleyville.

Nats 8 @ Padres 5.


Matt kemp & Melvin Upton Jr. each had an RBI single in the 1st to put the Pads up 2-0. Drew had a sac fly in the 2nd to get the Nats back to even at 2-1 before Harper & Ramos had back-to-back home runs in the 3rd to give the Nats the lead for good at 4-2. Wil Myers homered in the 5th, while Rendon homered in the 6th to get the 2 run lead back for the Nats, while a Christian Bethancourt groundout scored Upton to get the lead back to 1 in the bottom half. Robinson had a sac fly in the 7th to restore the 2 run lead at 6-4, Revere scored on a Bethancourt error trying to pick off Revere at 3rd and the throw went into LF, and Harper added a single to get the lead to 8-4. Kemp had a sac fly in the 9th for the final margin. Roark (6-4) pitched 6 innings allowing 7 hits, 4 runs (1 homer), 2 walks with 5 strikeouts. Treinen (6th hold) & Rivero (13th hold) combined to pitch 2 2/3 allowing 1 run on 3 hits, with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Kelley (2nd save) faced the final 2 batters and got them both out to lock down the 2nd save. Erik Johnson (0-2; 0-4 overall) allowed 7 hits & 5 runs (on 3 homers) in 6 innings with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts.


Series continues on Friday evening. Christian Freidrich (3-1, 2.12) takes the ball for the Fathers while Joe Ross (5-4, 3.01) starts for the Padres. Really late night Nats this evening as the game goes at 10:40 as the Padres are starting all Friday night games at 7:40 local time (10:40 eastern time) this season. Luckily I don't have to work on Saturday! By the time the Nats wrap up show ends it's probably going to be 2:30 in the morning (and that's assuming no extra innings).

Nats 7 @ Padres 5.


Keep the line moving! Matt Kemp singled in the first to put the Fathers up 1-0, and a Rendon sac fly tied the game at 1 in the 2nd. Nats got 4 in the 3rd to put them in front for good on a Murphy 2 run double and a 2 run Zim homer. A John Jay homer in the 5th, and a Murphy home run in the 6th added solo runs for each team and kept the 4 run Nats lead at 6-2, while a Derek Norris homer in the 6th, and a Harper RBI single in the 7th added solo runs for each team for a 7-3 lead. A Wil Myers groundout and a Yangervis Solarte fielders choice added the final 2 runs for the Padres and the game in the 7th inning. Christian Friedrich (3-2) allowed 6 runs on 9 hits (2 homers) with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts in 6 innings. Ross (6-4) pitched 6 innings allowing 6 hits and 3 runs (1 homer) with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts. Trienen (7th hold) & Solis (3rd hold) combined to pitch 2 innings with 0 runs, 2 hits, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. Petit (1st save) pitched a scoreless 9th allowing 1 hit.


Game 3 of the series goes tonight. Colin Rea (3-3, 5.37) takes the ball for the Padres and he'll be opposed by Scherzer (8-4, 3.40) for the Nats. Game time slated for 10:10 PM.

Nats 3 @ Padres 7.


Luckily the 8th inning started at like 12:45, so I doubt many people watched it, because that was ugly . Each team got 1 in the first: Nats got a Murphy single, while the Padres got a Wil Myers home run. Rendon reached on an infield single to first in the 7th which scored Ramos from 2nd, and the Nats added a 3rd run in the 8th on a Zimmerman single. Padres would get 6 runs in the 8th to run away. Myers double tied the game, and after Matt Kemp was intentionally walked to load the bases, Brett Wallace hit a comebacker back to Rivero which should have been an easy 1-2-3 double play, but Rivero bobbled it, and than threw the ball away to put the Pads in front 4-3. Treinen came in and preceded to walk Melvin Upton, Jr on 5 pitches to force in a 5th Pads run (and the 4th of the innings) and Yangervis Solarte finished the onslaught with a 2 run single. Stat of this game: the 3-4-5 batters from the Padres & Nats each had 12 plate appearances. The Nats 3-4-5 hitters only saw 28 pitches on the night from Padres pitchers while the Pads 3-4-5 hitters made the Nats pitchers work as they saw a total of 63 pitches. Wilson Ramos saw the most number of pitches for the Nats with 18; meanwhile 6 Pads batters saw at least 16 pitches in their at bats including 5 which saw 20 or more. About the biggest reason Colin Rea barely broke a sweat (85 pitches in 6 1/3) while Scherzer had to leave after 6 as he had already thrown 113. Pads wanted to get Scherzer out and take their chances on the bullpen which they did while the Nats were swinging like it was the final day of the regular season with them 17 games under .500 and they just wanted to get on vacation. How do they 3-4 batters only see 16 pitches total in 8 plate appearances?? Rea allowed 2 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts, while Kevin Quackenbush (4-3) pitched 1/3 of an inning allowed 1 hit and picked up the win. Scherzer also allowed 4 hits with 1 run (on 1 homer) with 0 walks and 10 strikeouts. Matt Belisle (2nd hold) pitched the 7th and allowed 1 hit but got erased with a double play. Rivero (0-3, 1st blown save) faced 6 batters allowed 6 runs (5 earned), 2 walks (1 intentional), on 3 hits and all 6 batters he faced came around to score.


Series concludes on Sunday with the Pads looking for the split. Nats send Gio Gonzalez (3-5, 3.96) while the Pads send up Drew Pomeranz (5-7, 2.88). Game time at 4:40.

Nats 3 @ Padres 6.


Each team scored in the first. Taylor homered on the first pitch of the game, while Yangervis Solarte tied the game with a single. Adam Rosales had a 2 run double in the 3rd to put the Pads up 3-1. Espi & Taylor had solo home runs in the 5th to tie the game at 3. Derek Norris game the Pads the lead for good in the bottom half of the 5th at 4-3, Alexi Ramirez added a single to get the Pads some insurance, and Matt Kemp ended the Pads scoring for the day in the 6th with a single. Gio Gonzalez (3-6) allowed 6 runs (5 earned) on 8 hits with 4 walks and 3 strikeouts as he continues to falter. Drew Pomeranz (6-7) allowed 3 runs on 6 hits (3 homers) with 1 walk and 7 strikeouts in 6 innings. Carlos Villanueva (3rd hold) and Ryan Butcher (10th hold) combined to pitch 2 innings with 1 hit, 0 walks and 3 strikeouts, while Fernando Rodney (14th save) struck out the side in the 9th.


Nats open a 3 game series in LA against the Dodgers beginning on Monday. Stephen Strasburg (10-0, 2.90) takes the ball for the Nats and he'll be opposed by Clayton Kershaw (10-1, 1.58). With 2 of the best 4 or 5 pitchers in the National League, watch this be a 24-22 final that takes 5.5 hours to play . Padres have Monday off, and open a 2 game interleague series at Baltimore which begins on Tuesday.
