    SNYDER: Dark cloud follows Nats after two glorious drafts

    When a team is "fortunate" enough to have the No. 1 pick in back-to-back years, with once-a-generation prospects available in back-to-back drafts, we shouldn't be surprised if good karma is scarce afterward. Few franchises are fortuitous enough to ever draft a Stephen Strasburg a Bryce Harper; snagging both within a 12-month span was like winning the Powerball on consecutive drawings.

    Nationals' frustrations continue as Brewers finish sweep

    There aren't too many scenes from the Washington Nationals' most recent road trip that they'll be playing on highlight tapes. Their one victory in the past eight games aside, it was a trip that began with offensive futility and ended with maddening all-around inconsistency.

    Despite extra-innings loss to Marlins, Nats are encouraged by their play

    The Washington Nationals did so many things right Friday night — Roger Bernadina's highlight-reel, game-saving catch, the timely home run and RBI-hits, the near-perfect relay throw they executed in the 11th inning — that it was almost difficult to believe they were the ones leaving Nationals Park with their second straight loss.

    Nats rally in ninth, surge in 11th to beat Braves 7-3

    For eight innings Wednesday night, the Washington Nationals followed a familiar script. They squandered too many opportunities with runners on base and in scoring position. They produced neither timely hits nor heady base running and looked poised to waste another solid pitching performance.
