Latest Anthony Rendon Items
Stephen Strasburg bounced back from his worst outing of the season with 7 2-3 strong innings, and Jayson Werth had two doubles and three RBIs in the Washington Nationals' 7-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
After nine weeks out following surgery to repair a torn left thumb ligament, Harper assumed his customary spot in left field for the Washington Nationals against the Colorado Rockies. But that sent Ryan Zimmerman and his arthritic right shoulder back to third base, which spun Anthony Rendon over to second and deflected second baseman Danny Espinosa to the bench.
The 21-year-old Harper was hitting .289 with one home run and nine RBI in 22 games before getting hurt. He played five rehabilitation games in the minors and hit .643, including three homers in a Double-A game over the weekend.
Both Matt Williams and Bryce Harper had interesting thoughts on the Nats' lineup moving forward, now that everyone is healthy.
Rendon has become the new darling among Nationals fans, winning them over with his slick third base glove, his clutch game-winning bat, and his generally happy demeanor — seemingly taking life as it comes.
Gio Gonzalez holds the Cubs scoreless in his seven innings and helps the Nats avoid their fourth straight loss.
With the temperature 59 degrees at first pitch and fog rolling in that at times became so dense fielders struggled to see fly balls, the Nationals were battling more than just the Chicago Cubs after they fell behind 3-0 in the fourth inning of a 5-3 defeat.
At least it took 13 innings for the Washington Nationals to lose to the Atlanta Braves, instead of the usual nine.
Anthony Rendon's homer with 2 outs in the 9th picked the Nats up off the mat. But after losing to the Braves in the 13th, they were even more demoralized than before.
