Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night because of tightness in his forearm.
Tests did, however, reveal some inflammation and Harper was placed on oral anti-inflammatory medication in order to help alleviate that. When the outfielder may return to the Nationals' lineup will be based on how he feels in the coming days.
Stephen Strasburg gave up four runs and four hits in six innings to help the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 6-4 on Sunday.
Ryan Zimmerman homered twice and drove in three runs to power the Washington Nationals to a 9-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.
"He's playing unbelievable," said Washington shortstop Ian Desmond. "This is the Jayson I remember playing against in Philadelphia."
In 60 1/3 innings this season, facing 230 batters, Clippard has allowed 28 total hits. He has walked 20, given up seven home runs and allowed 15 runs to score while he's been on the mound (13 earned runs, two inherited runners)
Drew Storen was about 15 years old when he got a chance to talk to Dr. Timothy Kremchek. The Cincinnati Reds' medical director talked to the young right-hander about pitching — and about how it is simply not something the body is really built to do.
First the Washington Nationals were very bad, giving up four runs in the first inning. Then they were very good, recovering from the big early deficit to forge a 4-4 tie in search of their sixth straight road win. But then they were very bad again, fumbling through a shaky eighth inning Sunday afternoon while giving up two runs and practically handing a 6-4 win to a Kansas City team that hadn't had a victory in more than a week.
The rookie reliever shut down the Kansas City Royals over the critical middle innings Friday night, emboldening his team after it rallied from a six-run hole. Jayson Werth's two-run homer and a terrific catch by Bryce Harper helped sew up Washington's 11-10 victory.
