Jimenez dazzles against Nationals

Not long ago, Washington was 40 games under the .500 mark, seemingly destined to lose 110-plus times this season and select No. 1 overall again in next summer’s draft. Not anymore. Even with Tuesday’s loss, this outfit has gone 17-15 under Riggleman, has drawn within four games of the Kansas City Royals and needs only to go 20-23 the rest of the way to avoid 100 losses.

“That’s one thing this team has: Every day we’re going to play hard,” Dunn said. “I don’t think it matters if we’re playing the Bad News Bears or we’re playing these guys who are in the playoff race. I think we play the same.”
