Nationals pinch-hitters are 1 for their last 28. How do they try to get back on track when they're barely playing to begin with?
Veteran pitcher Alfredo Simon silenced the Nationals' bats Wednesday afternoon and his teammates did just enough at the plate to help the Cincinnati Reds leave town with a 2-1 victory.
After 15 long innings, it was the Nationals who found themselves on the losing end early Tuesday morning.
When this happens — when the starting players who nearly everyone predicted for the second straight season to lead the Nationals to the NL East title and the postseason aren't starting — then the season falls on the spare parts used to carry the team until they get whole. The season falls on general manager Mike Rizzo.
Twice in their extra innings loss to the Reds, the Nationals had would-be walk-off singles negated by incredible defensive plays.
Addison Reed left a pitch out over the middle to Danny Espinosa, then did the same to Kevin Frandsen three batters later.
Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. is not ready to admit letting Kevin Frandsen go late in March was a mistake.
Pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsen and Danny Espinosa each hit solo homers in the ninth inning, helping the Nationals rally for a 6-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night in Williams' return to the desert.
Red and blue lights flashed in the darkness as rap music blared and smoke filled the Washington Nationals' clubhouse.
The Nationals missed a chance to beat the Phillies and take over first place on Sunday, but they still like where they stand overall.
Bryce Harper was benched before the beginning of the seventh inning in the Nationals' loss to the Cardinals on Saturday afternoon.
Bryce Harper hit the ball to the mound, jogged to first base and took a right turn to the dugout before getting halfway down the basepath.
Matt Williams was required to push a whole lot of buttons in his first game as Nationals manager, and he pushed most of them right.
After a hectic few days in which he elected to leave the Phillies, infielder Kevin Frandsen is excited to join the Nationals.
The Nationals have signed veteran infielder Kevin Frandsen for $900,000 and made him the final man on their Opening Day bench.
"It's one of those things you have in your back pocket," Frandsen said. "Is it easy? Not all the time. It's something different from the infield. But at the same time, you just be an athlete. Go out and catch the ball."
"You stick your glove out and maybe some things go in there," he said with a laugh.
