Brewers 4 @ Nats 7.


Harper had a 3 run homer in the 1st, and Lobes added a solo home run in the 2nd before the wheels fell off in the 3rd: Scotter Gennett 2 run single scored 2 and cut the lead in half, Jonathan LuCroy added 1 on a single, and then Gennett scored on a double steal for the 4th run to tie it up. Drew had a ground rule double in the bottom half to put the Nats up for good, and Zimmerman added a 2 run homer in the 5th to finish the scoring. Matt Garza (1-2) allowed 7 runs on 8 hits (3 homers) with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts in 4.1. Tanner Roark (8-5) allowed 7 hits and 4 runs with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts in 7 innings. Sammy Solis (5th hold) and Shawn Kelley (6th hold) combined to pitch the 8th with 1 hit and 2 strikeouts, while the recently active Jonathan Papelbon (17th save) struck out the side in the 9th.


Brewers are off Thursday, and they'll conclude the first half of the schedule at home vs. the Cardinals. Nats finish the first half of the schedule with 4 in Queens against the Mets. Bartolo Colon (7-4, 2.84) takes the ball for the Mets against Lucas Giolito (0-0, 0.00) for the Nats with a 7:10 start.

You should bench Werth, and play Ollie Perez instead.

Nats 7 @ Mets 9.


10 of the 16 runs scored in this game came via the home run. I thought this was played at Citi Field, not the little league ballpark in the other borough?? Nats scored first on a Murphy single in the first, and than James Loney tied it in the 3rd with the single, and then here's where the ball started flying out of the park. Nats got 3 solo home runs in the 4th to take a 4-1 lead: Harper, then after out, Robinson & Rendon went back to back. Travis d'Arnaud and Jose Reyes (his first home run back with the team) each had solo home runs in the 4th to cut it 1-0, and a Yoenis Cespedes double tie the game at 4. Oliver Perez scored on a Murphy fielders choice, and a Ramos single in the 5th made it a 6-4 Nats lead. Wilmer Flores gave the Mets the lead for good in the bottom half with a 3 run homer, and Asdrubal Cabrera added an insurance home run in the 6th. Murph got one of those runs back in the 7th with a home run of his own, and Neil Walker tallied the final run of the game in the 7th with a single. In the 9th after Werth walked to open the inning, Murph was called for a double play after Werth slid late into second on the new Chase Utley slide rule, and apparently Nats GM Mike Rizzo was not too happy (Murphy had beaten the relay throw to first) as the umpires filed a formal complaint against Rizzo to the commissioners office. We'll see where this goes from here. Both starting pitchers got beat around like they were piñatas at a kids party but due to the offensive explosion, they both were off the hook. Bartolo Colon pitched 4.2 with 6 runs on 10 hits (3 homers) with 0 walks and 2 strikeouts. Hansel Robles (3-3) pitched 1.1 scoreless with 1 hit and 2 strikeouts, Anthony Bastardo (7th hold) pitched 2/3 with 1 strikeout, 1 run & 1 hit (a home run), Addison Reed (19th hold) pitched 1.1 scoreless with 2 strikeouts, while Jeurys Familia (31st save) allowed a walk and recorded a strikeout in the 9th to close it out. For the Nats Lucas Giolito started and failed to make it out of the 4th inning lasted only 3.2 allowing 4 runs on 7 hits (2 homers), with 4 walks and 4 strikeouts. Perez (2-2) ultimately took the loss allowing 3 runs on 4 hits (1 homer) in 1.1 with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts, but at the plate went 2-2 with a run scored becoming the first relief pitcher in I think 5 years to have 2 hits in a game.


Friday's pitching matchup has Noah Syndergaard (9-3, 2.41) for the Mets against Stephen Strasburg (11-0, 2.71) for the Nats at 7:10, Saturday is Max "home run derby pitcher" Scherzer (9-6, 3.21) against Logan Verrett (3-5, 4.01) at 7:15 while the first half finale on Sunday is Gio Gonzalez (4-8, 4.79) vs. Steven Matz (7-4, 3.34) at 1:10. I'm traveling over the weekend, so if no one updates this thread I'll have the, hopefully, happy recap later next week.

Or first base for Zimmerman too! At least we have another pinch hitter off the bench though, LOL.

Ollie and Bartolo both take the approach swing hard in case you hit something. LOL!

After the bad game on Friday, it was good to end the weekend with the next 3 to build a 6 game advantage. Hopefully no choking, both literally and figuratively this year


Friday:
Nats 3 @ Mets 1.


Robinson homered in the 2nd putting the Nats up 2-0, Murph double put them up 3-0 in the 3rd, and the Mets finished the scoring in the 5th with an Asdrubal Cabrera home run. Noah Syndergaard (9-4) allowed 3 runs on 4 hits (1 homer) with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts before leaving after 4.2 with arm fatigue. Stephen Strasburg (12-0) allowed 1 run on 2 hits (1 homer) with 3 walks and 9 strikeouts in 7 innings. Perez (9th hold) & Treinen (10th hold) combined to pitch the 8th inning, while Papelbon (18th save) had a strikeout in the 9th recording the save.


Saturday:
Nats 6 @ Mets 1.


Neil Walker sac fly in the 1st put the Mets up 1-0, but from there it was all Nats. Robinson sac fly in the second tied the game at 1, and a Revere triple in the 3rd put the Nats in front for good, with a Murphy single later that inning getting them a 3-1 lead. Murph double in the 5th and a Murph 2 run homer in the 7th finished the scoring and our 7-1 final. Scherzer (10-6) allowed 1 run (0 earned) on 3 hits in 7 innings with 2 walks and 9 strikeouts. Logan Verrett (3-6) allowed 5 runs on 4 hits with 5 walks and 3 strikeouts in 6.2.


Sunday:
Nats 3 @ Mets 2.


Murphy homer in the first put the Nats up 2-0, and a Ramos single in the 3rd got the Nats their 3rd run. Mets 2 runs scored on 2 Jose Reyes home runs in the 1st & 3rd. Both starting pitchers were excellent on the day. Gonzalez (5-8) pitched 5.2 with 2 runs on 4 hits (2 homers) with 4 walks and 3 strikeouts. Tanner Roark (1st hold) pitched a hitless 2.1 innings with 2 strikeouts. Papelbon (19th save) allowed 1 hit with 2 strikeouts and picking up 2 strikeouts. Steven Matz (7-5) pitched 7 innings allowing 3 runs on 6 hits (1 homer) with 4 walks and 5 strikeouts.


Nats open the second half of the schedule with a 9 game home stand, the first 3 of which are against the Pittsburgh Pirates beginning Friday, the first time the Nats will see the Pirates this year. Francisco Liriano (5-8, 5.15) starts for the Pirates, while the Nats will hand the ball to Stephen Strasburg (12-0, 2.62). Game time goes at 7:05. Mets open with a 3 game series in Philadelphia against the Phillies.

THE OFFICIAL SITE OF THE WASHINGTON NATIONALS reports :
TRADE SCENARIO
The Nationals are trying to acquire bullpen help. As one baseball source put it, "Bullpen help is the top priority before the Deadline." The Nats have interest in Yankees relievers Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman, who are dominating left-handed relievers. The Yanks are likely looking to replenish their farm system, so it wouldn't come as a surprise if they asked for prospects such as Lucas Giolito and Trea Turner.


What a wonderful opportunity for Trea Turner to get out from under the biased managing of DB. I so hope something like this happens and gets Trea in a program that will take advantage of his talents.

IIRC, you were the same person from back in April that said the same thing about Dusty. What has Dusty done to you?? Did he run over your dog or take a $#!t in your cheerios?? Yah I had my doubts on Dusty, but I gave him a chance, and so far he's been an excellent choice. The players love playing for him, he keeps a calm, cool, exciting clubhouse & culture which is a complete 1080 from Williams. And to be fair I did give Papelbon a chance last year and he proved what a complete asshat he was. And really, where would Turner play?? Espinosa has been almost as hot as Harper has been in the last 2 weeks! Why should we take Espi out just to play Turner. In Washington he'd start once a week, pinch hit in 5-6 other games, and the rest of the time sit & rot on the bench. I'd rather send him down to Syracuse in AAA so he'd at least play, get him some time in the OF and maybe he can be the 4th OF next year.

I think he is a very biased person. He has had no problem promoting it Dusty Baker causes stir with Chapman, race remarks - NY Daily News . I don't appreciate his immunity from this type of stereotyping. We're talking about the career and future of an outstanding ballplayer. I get it that the Nat's had a bizarre dugout and lack of leadership last year but to bring in someone like DB is a joke.

Pirates 1 @ Nats 5.


Starting right back where we left in the first half . Jordy Mercer single in the 5th got the Pirates on the board first, but Robinson tied it in the bottom half with his own single, and they took the lead for good in the 7th with 4 runs: Strasburg drove in a run himself when David Freeze misplayed a Stras bunt, a second run scored on a wild pitch, and than an error when Eric Fryer tried to throw out Robinson advancing on the wild pitch and threw the ball into LF, and Strasburg scored on Taylor's home run. Francisco Liriano (5-9) allowed 3 runs on 5 hits with 4 walks and 5 strikeouts in 6+ innings. He pitched to 2 batters in the 7th and they both came around to score. Strasburg (13-0) pitched 8 innings allowing 3 hits & 1 run with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts, and becomes the first pitcher to start a season 13-0 since teammate Max Scherzer started 13-0 for the Detroit Tigers in 2013. Scherzer that year ended up winning the Cy Young award, can Stras follow suit??


Game 2 goes Saturday night. Tanner Roark (8-5, 3.01) starts for the Nats while Gerrit Cole (5-4, 2.77) will come off the DL and make his first start since June 10 for the Pirates. Game time at 7:05.

Pirates 0 @ Nats 6.


Rendon single in the first put the Nats on the board early, and an Espi double in the 2nd doubled the lead to 2-0. Nats got 3 more in the 4th, 2 scored when Roark reached on an infield single and than a throwing error when Josh Harrison chucked the throw into the Nats dugout, and the 3rd scored when Espi scored on a Revere fielders choice, and then Rendon finished the scoring in the 5th with a home run. Roark (8-5) pitched 8 scoreless allowing 5 hits with 1 walk & 5 strikeouts, Gerrit Cole (5-5) allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 7 hits with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts.


Nats go for the sweep on Sunday. Max Scherzer (10-6, 3.03) starts for the Nats while Chad Kuhl (1-0, 6.08) starts for the Bucs. Game time at 1:35.
