Earlier this evening, Jayson Werth’s walk-off hit and subsequent vulgar TV interview capped off a spectacular Nationals-Cubs game. However, far earlier in the game, a Nationals fan stealthily owned the Cubs by mocking Ben Zobrist’s restless butter-churn looking batting stance. TV cameras picked it up as our man was…
The Washington Nationals took the rubber match against the Chicago Cubs this evening after an insane 12-inning affair that featured the Nationals going ahead in the 8th, losing the lead in the ninth, forcing extra innings, falling behind in the 12th, then finally walking off after Jayson Werth singled in Michael…
Stephen Strasburg gave up a single run over his six innings, and the Washington Nationals knocked around the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen late, combining to send the Cardinals to a 10-2 road loss Sunday.
Look, Bryce Harper has been sort of grumpy fella lately, on account of everyone is walking him and pitching around him like he’s Babe Ruth or something. Not so much tonight. Mike Leake hung a pitch against Harper this evening so he sent it to the third deck.
Bartolo Colon, who turns 43 years old today, threw an excellent outing last night, going seven innings and allowing one run on five hits in the Mets’ 7-1 win over Washington. But that is not why we are here. We are here for the comedy.
NL hitting leader Daniel Murphy and his new buddies on the Washington Nationals are in New York to take on the Mets, for whom Murphy jerked some postseason dongs last year. Washington put a whooping on New York last night, and they’re up big tonight thanks to Matt Harvey’s bad start.
Bad tweet incoming:
There’s nothing ordinary about striking out 20 guys in a single game, and Max Scherzer doesn’t really need any help shining up the diamond he gave us last night, but this performance stands out as unusual even amongst its peers.
Max Scherzer tied the MLB record with 20 strikeouts against the Detroit Tigers tonight, throwing 96 strikes on 119 pitches in nine innings of work as the Nationals won 3-2. He had a chance to get 21, but James McCann grounded out to a sheepish Daniel Murphy. Scherzer struck out at least two Tigers in every inning but…
MLB has fined and suspended Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper for one game for “his actions” after he was ejected in Monday’s game against the Tigers. Harper will appeal.
Moments after being ejected by umpire Brian Knight for arguing balls and strikes, Nationals slugger Bryce Harper got some words of revenge while celebrating Clint Robinson’s walk-off homer. Make baseball fun again!
Bryce Harper hasn’t logged an official at-bat in his last 11 plate appearances. He was walked a grand total of 13 times during a four-game series against the Cubs, and set an MLB record by reaching base seven times in Sunday’s game without recording an at-bat: He was walked three times, intentionally walked three…
The Washington Nationals were up 6-4 in Kansas City headed into the ninth. Tanner Roark gave them 7 1/3 solid innings, and everyone but Bryce Harper got a hit. They had a great chance to beat NBA center-sized pitcher Chris Young, but then Jonathan Papelbon, the maddest Jonathan in baseball, gave up five hits and three…
Nationals reliever Jonathan Papelbon has acquired a new nickname: Johnny Jonathan. MASN reporter Dan Kolko unintentionally created the moniker by making a smooth transition from the studio to the field.
With a full count on Bryce Harper in Sunday’s game, Phillies pitcher Jeanmar Gomez threw a sinker over the plate. The Nats outfielder put that pitch straight into the damn toilet.
Come on, it’s Bryce Harper. It shouldn’t take you more than 10 seconds to figure this one out.
Mmmm. Mmmmm. Love the taste of my glove. MMMM.
Bryce Harper’s 2016 season is off to a roaring start. He crushed a dinger in his first at-bat today, then continued his crusade on baseball’s stodgy unwritten rules with a timely (except for the trucker hat part) fashion choice.
