Braves 1 @ Nats 4.

Ozzie Albies had a 1 out double but with Freddie Freeman batting was caught stealing 3rd and the Braves failed to score in the first. Ryan Zimmerman would have a 2 run triple, his first triple in 2 years, as the Nats scored yet again in the first inning as they have now outscored teams 17-7 in the 1st inning this year. Wilmer Difo reached on a Dansby Swanson error, advanced to second on a Pedro Severino ground out and after Stephen Strasburg walked Brian Goodwin drove in the Nats 3rd run of the game on a single, and the Nats would get a 4th run on a throwing error on a Stasburg sac bunt. Dansby Swanson had a 2 out double in the 9th, but Ryan Madson got Ryan Flaherty, the tying run to strike out to end the game. Strasburg (2-1) pitched 8 scoreless innings allowing 3 hits, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts and Madson (1st save) had a hit and a strikeout in 2/3 inning of work. A.J. Cole (0-1, 24.55) will start Wednesday against Brandon McCarthy (2-0, 3.97) in Wednesday’s afternoon affair with a 1:05 first pitch.

Wednesday: Braves 5 @ Nats 3 (12 innings).

Ozzie Albies had a 1 out solo home run in the 4th, and Trea Turner tied the game in the 3rd on a 2 out single. Kurt Suzuki would have a 2 out homer in the 4th to put the Braves back up 2-1 where we stayed until the 9th, courtesy of Peter Bourjos throwing out Matt Adams at home on an absolute terrible send by Bob “Sendley” Hendley. Adams, who has lead feet as it is, isn’t even at 3rd yet when Bourjos fields the ball. The ONLY way Adams is scoring there is if Bourjus spikes the ball or if he throws the ball into the dugout/stands. And even if he spikes the ball, he can probably pick it up and STILL throw him out anyways. Adams had a home run off of Arodys Vizcaino with 1 out in the 9th, but Michael Taylor got left at 3rd to force extra innings. Game should have been over in the 10th as Ender Inciarte was called out on an attempted steal of home, but replay looked like he was safe. Suzuki would homer in the 11th to put the Bravos up 3-2, and Howie Kendrick would get the game-tying 2 out double to play onto the 12th. Albies, Freddie Freeman, and Nick Markaikis would walk to load the bases, and after Suzuki popped out, Bourjos had a 2 run single for the final margin. A.J. Cole allowed 2 runs on 3 hits (2 homers) with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts in 5.1, and Ryan Madson (0-1) allowed 2 runs on 3 hits with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. Sam Freeman (2nd hold), Dan Winkler (1st hold), and A.J. Minter (1st hold) allowed 2 hits, 1 walk, and 5 strikeouts in 3 scoreless innings, Vizcaino (1st blown save) allowed 1 run on 2 hits (1 homer) and Shane Carle (2-1, 1st blown save) allowed 1 run on 2 hits with 2 strikeouts in 2 innings. Braves have Thursday off and will start a series in Chicago against the Cubs on Friday afternoon. 4 game home series for the Nats vs Colorado starts on Thursday. Chad Betis (1-0, 2.53) starts for the Rockies against Gio Gonzalez (1-0, 1.59) with game time scheduled for 7:05.

Thursday: Rockies 5 @ Nats 1.
DJ LeMahieu would have a leadoff homer to give the Roxs a quick 1-0 lead and ex-Nat Ian Desmond would reach on an error to put the Roxs up 2-0. LeMahieu had a 2 out double in the 2nd to go up 3-0, but Kendrick would have a homer to CF to cut the deficit back to 2 at 3-1. LeMahieu would have his second home run and 4th RBI of the night to center field to put Colorado up 5-1 and conclude the scoring. Chad Betis (2-0) allowed 1 run on 3 hits (1 homer) with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. Gio Gonzalez (1-1) allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits (1 homer) with 3 walks and 7 strikeouts in 5 innings. The 4 game series continues on Friday. Kyle Freeland (0-2, 5.56) starts for the Rockies while the Nats will hand the ball to Tanner Roark (1-0, 4.50). Game time scheduled for 7:05

Rockies 2 @ Nats 1.

First time they are 2 games under .500 at any point in the season since May 25 of 2014 when they lost an extra inning game to the Marlins to fall to 25-27. Carlos Gonzalez had a 2 out solo homer in the 4th for a 1-0 Rockies lead. Tanner Roark had a 1 out single, Trea Turner walked and Anthony Rendon singled to load the bases with Roark scoring on a sac fly to tie the game in the 5th, and Gonzalez would finish the scoring with a sac fly in the 6th. They went down quietly against Scott Oberg, Bryan Shaw, Adam Ottavino, Mike Dunn and Wade Davis as they had 0 hits and 1 base runner as Rockies relievers, starting when Oberg relieved Kyle Freeland with 2 on and 2 outs in the 5th, retired 13 of 14 batters that came to the plate. Freeland allowed 1 run on 4 hits with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts in 4.2. Oberg (1-0) had 1 walk in 1.1 hitless innings, Shaw (3rd hold), Dunn (2nd hold), Ottavino (3rd hold) had 4 strikeouts in 2 hitless innings and Wade Davis (6th save) had a 1-2-3 9th with 2 strikeouts. Jon Gray (1-2, 5.63) starts for the Rockies against Max Scherzer (2-1, 0.90). Game time on Saturday scheduled for 1:05.

While still early, they are now closer to Fish than to 3rd. Series vs Mets ultra important IMO, even in April, to Nats.

I do not see offense getting help until late May as it will take a few weeks for Murph to be himself.

Right now, there is no reason to pitch to Harper.

IMO Nats should bat Eaton when healthy just ahead of him, Rendon right behind him, drop Zimmerman to 6th or 7th, with Taylor 8th or 9th (pitcher 8th). Until end May when Murphy bats just ahead of Harper.

Since I'm the only one that actually does full recaps on here that I can tell, I'm just going to do summaries. Less time and frankly I don't even have that much time anyways.

Saturday: Rockies 2 @ Nats 6.
Charlie Blackmon had both of the Rockies RBI's finishing 1-4 with a run scored and 2 RBI's on a 2 run first-inning home run. Gerrardo Parra had a walk and scored a run, and Ryan McMahon finished 1-3 and had the only other Rockies hit. Matt Weiters went 2-4 with 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored with 1 home run, while Moises Sierra went 1-4 with 2 RBI's, Wilmer Difo was 2-4 with a run scored and RBI, Bryce Harper was 2-3 with a run scored, and Michael Taylor was 1-4 with an RBI and a run scored, and Ryan Zimmerman pinch hit, walked, and scored a run. Jon Gray (1-3) allowed 5 runs on 8 hits (1 homer) with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts in 5.2. Max Scherzer (3-1) allowed 2 runs on 1 hit (1 homer) with 1 walk and 11 strikeouts in 7 innings.

Sunday: Rockies 6 @ Nats 5.
Harper finished 1-2 with 1 RBI and 3 walks with 1 home run, and Weiters finished 1-2 with an RBI, run scored, a homer and a walk, Trea Turner had a run scored, and Taylor finished 2-3 with 2 runs scored, with the other 3 runs scoring on an error and 2 wild pitches. Blackmon lead the Rockies with 3 RBI's finishing 2-4 with 2 runs scored and a home run, DJ LeMahieu finished 1-3 with an RBI and 2 runs scored with a home run, Carlos Gonzalez finished 1-4 with an RBI, Mike Tauchman finished 1-1 with a run, and Ian Desmond finished 1-4 with a run scored, RBI and the game-winning home run in the top of the 9th. Stephen Strasburg allowed 4 runs on 4 hits (1 homer) with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings and Sean Doolittle (0-1) allowed 1 run on 1 hit (1 homer) but struck out the side. Tyler Anderson allowed 3 runs (only 1 earned) on 2 hits (1 homer) with 6 strikeouts but also walked 6 in 4.2, Bryan Shaw (1st blown save) allowed 1 run on 2 hits (1 homer) with 2 walks and a strikeout in 2/3 of an inning, Adam Ottavino (3-0, 1st blown save) allowed 1 run on 1 hit with 2 strikeouts in 1 inning and Wade Davis (7th save) had a walk in a hitless 9th. In other games from around the East on Sunday: The Mets had a walkoff homer to defeat the Brewers 3-2, Phillies beat the Rays 10-4, Marlins lose to the Pirates 3-7, and the Braves/Cubs from Chicago was one of 6 games postponed on Sunday, that game will be made up on Monday, May 14. The Mets continue to lead the East with baseball's second best record at 12-2, 3 games up on the Phillies at 9-5 who have won 6 straight and 8 of 10, Braves are 4 back at 8-6, Nats at 7-9 are 6 back, and the Marlins are 8.5 back with a 4-11 record. 3 game series at the Mets starts on Monday. Jacob deGrom (2-0, 3.06) starts for the Mets against Jeremy Hellickson (8-11, 5.43 in 2017 with the Phillies & Orioles). Game time slated for 7:10. In other East games on Monday the Marlins join the Nats in New York as they visit the Bronx, and the Phillies & Braves play for the second time already this year in Atlanta (despite this being only the start of the 3rd full week of the season they have somehow played 2 series both in Atlanta) . Hopefully it goes a little bit better for Gabe Kapler this team around after the embarrassing opening series in Atlanta to begin the year when he took Aaron Nola out with a 4 run lead, and then brought in a reliever that wasn't even warmed up yet.

Was shocked he ran.

Harper has next to no protection.

But DeGrom would have pitched to him..carefully.
