SEEN AND HEARD AT RFK STADIUM

He was the most popular man in a Nationals uniform yesterday. Everywhere he turned, someone was asking for an interview request. Writers. Radio announcers. TV hosts. Yes, Jason Bergmann was living the good life less than 24 hours removed from his near no-hitter at RFK. The 25-year-old right-hander suddenly turned into a media darling. It began late Monday night, when he was interviewed over the phone by ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight.” It continued before last night’s game, with just about every outlet in town wanting a piece of him. So apparently Bergmann’s worst fears weren’t realized.

“I hope they like me tomorrow,” he said Monday night.

DID YOU KNOW?

Atlanta Braves right-hander John Smoltz has just two losses in nine starts this season. Both came against the Nationals.

TONIGHT’S GAME

Nationals RHP Levale Speigner (1-0, 3.77) vs. Braves RHP Kyle Davies (1-1, 5.35), 7:05 p.m., MASN, AM-1500, FM-107.7.
