Chatter Archive: April 2009


  • Thru 6: Defensive woes continue

    You can pretty much write this one off as a lost cause at this point. The Nationals gave up another three runs in the sixth, facilitated in part by Wil Nieves' throwing error, and lead 8-2. Published April 25 2009

  • Thru 3: Yikes

    There have been some ugly moments early this season for the Nationals, but I'm not sure any of them stack up to the first three innings here. To recap: Published April 25 2009

  • Morning news (and lineups)

    We interrupt your day of saturated Redskins draft coverage for a few Nats news items: Published April 25 2009

  • Recovering from another downer

    Beautiful (if slightly muggy) day here at Citi Field, where the Nats arrive with a familiar task: trying to pick up the pieces from a one-run loss the night before. Published April 25 2009

  • Thru 6: More outfield troubles

    Nats trail 3-1, the difference being that when Johan Santana needed to get out of a jam, he did it himself. When Scott Olsen had to get out of one, his defense silpped up. Published April 24 2009

  • Thru 3: Hanging on

    This Nats-Mets game so far has felt like a championship fight--you just get the feeling New York is jabbing away for now, waiting to land the knockout punch later. The Mets lead 1-0 after three, but it could have been more. Published April 24 2009

  • Game 1 in the new stadium

    Hello from New York, where the Nationals begin a three-game series with the Mets tonight. Published April 24 2009

  • Another heartbreaker

    The Nats bullpen issues three straight walks in the ninth inning of a scoreless game and suffers a 1-0 loss to Atlanta. Published April 22 2009

  • Thru 6: Still scoreless

    John Lannan and Jair Jurrjens are engaged in a classic pitchers' duel. Published April 22 2009

  • Thru 3: Scoreless (plus a makeup date announced)

    John Lannan has stayed out of trouble, as has Jair Jurrjens. And the Nats announce a makeup date for last week's rainout against the Phillies. Published April 22 2009

  • Going for the sweep

    Who would have thought two days ago the Nats would have a chance to sweep a three-game series from a division rival? Published April 22 2009

  • A winning streak!

    The Nats have won two in a row after Joel Hanrahan closes out a one-run game for the second straight night. Published April 22 2009

  • Thru 6: Nats rally to take 4-3 lead

    Washington's offense comes to life in the sixth, scoring three times to take a 4-3 lead. Published April 21 2009

  • Thru 3: Nats trail 3-1

    The Nationals gave up a big inning in the first and couldn't put one together in the second. And that's the difference through three innings of this one, where the Braves lead 3-1. Published April 21 2009

  • Beimel to DL, Rivera recalled

    Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, Joe Beimel goes on the DL with a left hip flexor strain and Saul Rivera gets recalled from Class AAA Syracuse. Published April 21 2009

  • Thru 6: Zimmermann done

    Pretty impressive debut for Jordan Zimmermann. Now we'll find out if it ended too quickly. Published April 20 2009

  • Thru 3: Zimmermann impresses

    Rookie right-hander is pounding the strike zone in his big-league debut, but he's been matched so far by Atlanta's Derek Lowe. Published April 20 2009

  • First pitch at 9:15 p.m.

    The tarp is off and we'll be underway soon. Published April 20 2009
