Bryce Harper ready to return to Nats, but first you gotta see his outfit

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 23:19:10 GMT

Bryce Harper helped answer two important questions about himself as Major League Baseball prepares to enter the final week of its season: When will he be back in the Washington Nationals lineup? The Nats haven’t yet made the formal announcement, as Harper is considred “day-to-day” at this point.



Washington Nationals’ lineup for the series finale with the New York Mets in Citi Field

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:58:01 GMT

After falling behind 3-0 last night, the Washington Nationals rallied to tie it, kept it tied through nine, then won in it the tenth, with Daniel Murphy connecting for his 23rd home run of the season and his ninth home run in 37 games against the team that drafted and developed him then allowed him to become a free agent. Dusty Baker talked after five strong from Stephen Strasburg, five scoreless from his bullpen, and a 4-3 win in extras, about what impressed him most about the Nationals coming back to take the second of three with the New York Mets in Citi Field. “Probably wish we’d have gotten some more timely hits, but our bullpen continues to throw well,” Baker said. Baker was asked if he had any concerns about having to play extras in New York, when he’s trying to manage his players and pitchers carefully to get everyone ready for NLDS action in a couple weeks.



Bryce Harper expected to return to Washington Nationals’ lineup in Philadelphia on Monday night...

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 22:58:01 GMT

According to a report by Washington Post writer Chelsea Janes this afternoon, which cited “people familiar with the situation”, Bryce Harper will return to the Washington Nationals’ lineup on Monday night in Philadelphia after missing 40 games. MASN’s Mark Zuckerman too has spoken to sources who say Harper, barring any sort of setback in the next twenty-four hours, will return to the lineup against the Phillies. Harper, 24, suffered a significant bone bruise in his left knee and a calf strain in his left leg when he slipped on a wet first base bag while running out a grounder in an August 12th game in the nation’s capital. The hope from the start, after the initial diagnosis, was that Harper



Washington Nationals dress up as Game of Thrones characters for rookie dress up...

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 22:28:01 GMT

You know nothing, Jayson Werth. Is Bryce Harper a direwolf? Ghost? Please don’t tell me Trea Turner is being cast as Joffrey? I used to like you, Trea. There are some Unsullied. There are some Faith Militant. I think Stephen Strasburg is Beric Dondarrion? That is... kind of awesome, Stras. Can you pick out any more? We have everyone’s favorite left-hander Sammy Solis to thank for the following pics as the Nationals dressed up and prepared to travel from New York to Philadelphia for the start of a three-game set with the Phillies tomorrow night. Oh, and nice job working your way out of that bases-loaded jam you inherited today, Sammy. Here are some pics of the Nationals as Game of Thrones characters:



Max Scherzer and Nationals take series finale from Mets, 3-2: "Max just knows how to pitch."

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 04:13:01 GMT

Max Scherzer started Sunday afternoon (2-1) with a 3.68 ERA, four walks, 26 Ks, and a .228/.282/.443 line against in 22 innings pitched against the New York Mets in 2017. After his last outing against Washington’s NL East rivals, which saw him hold Mets’ hitters to a run on four hits in eight innings in a 7-2 win in Citi Field, Nationals’ manager Dusty Baker, was asked if the 33-year-old righty was the best pitcher he’s managed. “Lately,” Baker joked. Mets’ manager Terry Collins said Scherzer is, “... one of the best in the game,” after that matchup and told reporters he knew you couldn’t fall behind on a starter like the Nats’ ace. “You cannot let him get the lead,” Collins said. “Those great



Washington Nationals injury update: Bryce Harper completes second simulated game... what’s next?

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 10:43:01 GMT

Two more minor league pitchers, 21-year-old, 2017 9th Round pick Alex Troop, a lefty, and 20-year-old Steven Fuentes, a righty, came to Citi Field from West Palm Beach, FL on Saturday afternoon to pitch to Bryce Harper before the second of three between the Washington Nationals and Mets in Flushing, Queens, New York. It was the second simulated game for Harper, who’s been out of the Nats’ lineup since August 12th, when he suffered a significant bone bruise in his left knee and calf strain slipping on a wet first base bag in the nation’s capital. Harper has been through several sessions of batting practice, he’s run the bases to test his knee, shagged fly balls, and taken part in two simulated

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:54:13 GMT

Max Scherzer struck out 10 and outpitched Jacob deGrom in a matchup of aces, and the Nationals edged the New York Mets 3-2 on Sunday to clinch home-field advantage in the NL Division Series.

Murphy homers in 10th to lift Nationals over Mets

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 04:55:46 GMT

Murphy homered in the 10th inning and the Nationals bullpen followed Stephen Strasburg with five scoreless innings, lifting Washington over the Mets 4-3 Saturday night after Noah Syndergaard's return. Murphy led off the 10th with his 23rd home run this season, taking reliever Jacob Rhame (0-1) deep with a shot that clanked off the home-run apple in center field.



Washington Nationals’ lineup for second of three with New York Mets: Stephen Strasburg vs Noah Syndergaard in Citi Field...

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 19:43:01 GMT

Noah Syndergaard returns to the mound in the majors tonight for the first time since he walked off the field in Nationals Park back in late April with what was diagnosed as a partially torn lat muscle. New York Mets’ skipper Terry Collins talked at the time about the fact that the hard-throwing right-hander had attempted to pitch through pain for the sake of his team when he ended up getting hurt. "Heroes die real fast in baseball," Collins said, as quoted by NJ.com’s Abbey Mastracco. Five months later, following two starts and a total of just three innings of work in the minors, Syndergaard returns the mound in the majors tonight to face the Nationals in the second game of three in Citi Field.



DeGrom's 11 Ks not enough as Mets lose to Nationals 3-2

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 21:58:02 GMT

Despite striking out 11 batters in six innings, Jacob deGrom and the Mets lost to Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals 3-2 on Sunday at Citi Field.  Box score DeGrom (15-10) allowed three runs (two earned) and five hits in six innings, as he surpassed the 200-inning mark in a season for the first time in his career. He gave up a two-run home run to Trea Turner in the third inning, then allowed an RBI single to Jose Lobaton in the fifth inning after Michael Taylor led off the fifth inning with a single, stole second and advanced to third on Travis d'Arnaud's throwing error. The Mets managed only three hits and one run off Scherzer (16-6) in the first six innings, but had the game-tying



Bryce Harper reportedly will come off the disabled list tomorrow

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 19:03:26 GMT

The regular season is winding down and there is no drama in the nation’s capital. With a stranglehold on the National League East for the entire season, the Washington Nationals were the first team in baseball to earn a playoff spot and their division. Since June, the Nationals’ lead has been hovering around 20 games. Their record against the division is 44-26 with three NL East series forthcoming. Beyond that, positioning has not been a factor in the National League either. It was a near forgone conclusion that the Nationals were going to earn the No. 2 seed in the NL side of the postseason. There was a slight chance last week that Washington could pass the Los Angeles Dodgers with them losing
