Amanda Comak covers the Washington Nationals for The Washington Times.
The Nationals announced the tragic passing of shortstop Yewri Guillen Friday evening, an 18-year-old player at the team's Dominican Academy in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic who died of bacterial meningitis. On Tuesday, Major League Baseball made its first public comments about Guillen's death.
The Nationals offense finally exploded on Sunday in a doubleheader sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers and Nationals manager Jim Riggleman hasn't opted to change too much from the formula that gave him success this past weekend.
The Nationals -- riding a three-game winning streak -- face Jake Westbrook tonight and despite the familiarity the teams may have with one another, a hefty amount of Nationals hitters have never faced Westbrook, at least not in the regular season. The Cardinals come in with their own positives to accentuate after a 6-4 road trip has catapulted them back into the conversation in the NL Central with an offense that scored an absurd 73 runs in 10 games. Nationals left-hander John Lannan will be looking to suppress that offense while he hopes his own team can continue the surge they showed off in Sunday's doubleheader sweep of the Brewers and give him some breathing room as they look to win four in a row in a place that hasn't been kind to Washington the past few years.
Updates on several Nationals minor leaguers.
With the Nationals most recent offensive explosion in the rearview, a look at how some departed Nats are doing.
Sure, the sample sizes were small. But the offensive numbers for the Washington Nationals entering Sunday's doubleheader against the Milwaukee Brewers at Nationals Park were, well, offensive.
If it were September, Todd Coffey insists he would be pitching. Instead, the Washington Nationals right-hander headed to the 15-day disabled list today with a strained left calf. The move is retroactive to April 9.
Here are the lineups for Game 1 of today's doubleheader:
The Nationals announced that they've placed right-handed reliever Todd Coffey on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain and recalled right-handed reliever Collin Balester from Triple-A Syracuse.
The sun has finally returned to Washington and the Nationals and Brewers are set to play two this afternoon at Nationals Park. The pitching matchups will be as follows: RHP Jason Marquis vs. RHP Yovani Gallardo in the first game; RHP Livan Hernandez vs. RHP Marco Estrada in the second.
A few notes from rain-soaked Nationals Park.
The Nationals 1:05 p.m. game against the Brewers today has been postponed due to rain.
The tarp has been on the field here at Nationals Park since late Friday night and I'm no weatherman but looking at the forecast I'd doubt they're removing it any time soon.
Yewri Guillen, an 18-year-old shortstop in the Nationals Dominican Republic academy in Boca Chica, died Thursday morning of bacterial meningitis, roughly four days after he began exhibiting symptoms of infection.
The Nationals held a moment of silence before tonight's game for 18-year-old Dominican Academy shortstop Yewri Guillen, who passed away this morning of bacterial meningitis.
