  • Marlins squander five-run lead, lose to Nationals

    WASHINGTON The nation's capital was most inhospitable for the Marlins a season ago. They went 1-9 at Nationals Park, were outscored 44-15, and were shut out on four occasions. The Marlins are in the Nationals' division. But, in reality, they weren't...

  • Marlins lose fourth in row as Nationals sweep

    WASHINGTON It was a breezy day at Nationals Park on Thursday, especially at home plate. That's where Marlins hitters whiffed 17 times to match a team record in their 7-1 loss to Washington. Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg fanned a dozen and Ian...
  • Wainwright shows versatility in two-hitter for victory over Nationals

    WASHINGTON The Washington Nationals, so slipshod and disinterested defensively throughout Thursday night, could have played a pristine game befitting their hype as a fashionable favorite and it still wouldn't have been enough. Adam Wainwright was even...
  • Hammel pitching like an All-Star; talking like a team player

    Hammel pitching like an All-Star; talking like a team player
    One of the big discussions in the press box before Friday’s game was whether Jason Hammel will be an All-Star. Not whether he is worthy – he has been the Orioles’ best starter this season – but whether he’ll be named to...
  • It's a successful return for Zack Greinke in Dodgers' 3-1 victory

    It's a successful return for Zack Greinke in Dodgers' 3-1 victory
    Zack Greinke did his job, even a tad more. Then the rest of the Dodgers did just enough of theirs to emerge with a 3-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 36,721. Greinke, making his first start...
