MILWAUKEE — After dropping a sixth straight game in the series opener on Friday night, the Nationals return to Miller Park for a Saturday matinee looking to build traction as the ten-day road trip comes to an end. It will also be an opportunity for left-hander Gio Gonzalez to halt his own individual skid on […]
MILWAUKEE – After a day off to lick their wounds following five consecutive losses on the West Coast, the Nationals will try to snap their skid in the first of a three-game set against the Brewers. Max Scherzer will face a Milwaukee club that has lost four of its last five, marking his return to […]
WASHINGTON — One of the cool things about going to a baseball game is the possibility of catching a foul ball, or better yet, a home run. Vin Scully, who has been doing Dodgers broadcasts since before they moved to Los Angeles, doesn’t get too excited about that possibility anymore. Instead, he uses the opportunity to make a fan’s day, if he can. Such an opportunity presented...
When I watched Jayson Werth‘s epic post-game interview where he referred to Jonathan Papelbon as the “DC Strangler,” I couldn’t help but think to myself, man, this is a great team. They seem like they are having a blast out there. That got me to thinking: What makes a successful team, and do the Washington Nationals have those same traits? I did a little research on the topic...
Over the past few weeks, Jayson Werth has played at a level unseen so far this season. For that reason, he has the Platinum Moment of the Week.
Nationals fans have extra incentive to stay up late to watch Dusty Baker and Co. on their West Coast trip beginning Thursday in San Diego. Fall asleep before the final out and you risk missing more late-inning heroics by Jayson Werth, who has two walk-off hits in the last four days, and, perhaps just as important, what the bearded veteran might say to […]
For the second time in four games, Jayson Werth delivered a walk-off hit for the Washington Nationals. His most recent came on Wednesday evening against the Chicago Cubs — capping off on a thrilling 5-4, 12-inning victory in D.C. It’s been a standout week for the 37-year-old outfielder. He’s posted a .421 batting average over the past seven days and a .333 mark in June....
Jayson Werth and the Washington Nationals seem to have bestowed an extremely fitting nickname upon Jonathan Papelbon. Werth was interviewed on the field after he delivered a walkoff two-run single to beat the Phillies on Sunday, and he made an apparent reference to Papelbon – using a very unique nickname. “Well, I knew I was in trouble when I saw The Strangler coming at me...
Listen, I love a good gif. More than most. But if I put the gif of Rhianna singing, nay, dancing in her music video for 'Work', not a single person would read this article. No one. Not anyone. Not in the overset of evers would anyone ever continue scrolling down to read about the Creeper of the Week when they could all gaze like a creeper at the 'work' of Rhianna rolling her hips...
Embed from Getty Images With the bases loaded and two outs Jayson Werth came to the plate in hopes of at the least extending the Nationals day by driving in the game-tying run. He did more than that. Trailing 4-3 in the ninth — after building a 3-0 lead — Werth drove a 2-2 fastball from closer Jeanmar Gomez up the middle, as Bryce Harper (from third) and Danny Espinosa...
