With a chance to pick up yet another series victory, the Nationals turned to Gio Gonzalez, who had been dominant over the last few weeks.
Monday's 8-2 loss to the Orioles was merely the latest extra-inning disaster for the Nationals, who are now 2-8 when the game extends beyond the ninth.
The Orioles scored six runs in the 11th inning, five of them charged to Nats reliever Craig Stammen, in an 8-2 victory at Nationals Park on Monday night.
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.
The Nationals improved to 3-7 against Atlanta. They increased their division lead over the Braves to 1 1/2 games. Roark (7-4) went 5 1/3 innings, allowing a run and four hits.
Craig Stammen joined an exclusive club on Sunday: The Nationals reliever became the rare major-leaguer to graduate from college.
After his Washington Nationals went 0 for 16 with runners in scoring position and left 14 men on base, manager Matt Williams repeated the words "opportunity" and "opportunities" and "chance" and "chances" over and over.
The Nationals gave up the go-ahead run in the 12th inning thanks to another defensive mistake.
By the time the 12th inning rolled around, the San Diego Padres were without third baseman Chase Headley - his strained calf could send him to the disabled list - and left fielder Seth Smith, who hurt a groin muscle.
The frustration was palpable in the clubhouse after the latest Nationals' loss, this time 4-3 in 12 innings to the San Diego Padres on Thursday night at Nationals Park.
Nats outfielder Jayson Werth hit a grand slam in the eighth inning to help lift Washington to a 10-7 victory over the Miami Marlins on a night starter Jordan Zimmermann struggled.
Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth clubbed monster home runs to lead the Nationals to another come-from-behind win.
Jayson Werth entered Washington's eighth game of the season with zero homers and a grand total of one RBI.
After falling into a big 5-0 hole thanks to a poor start from Jordan Zimmermann, big homeruns from Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth brings the Nats to a 10-7 win over Miami.
On Monday we got two offseason updates from Nationals players: one from Craig Stammen who is doing something for himself, and one from Bryce Harper who is trying to help out somebody else.
"It's part of the game," Stammen said of the minor league stint. "You're spitting fire. I wanted to do everything I could to make it short."
