Latest Kurt Suzuki Items
The early fall sun that settles over Nationals Park during day games became a menace during the Washington Nationals' penultimate regular season homestand. Jayson Werth couldn't recall a tougher battle in any stadium in the major leagues, saying it "borders on ridiculous."
The ball nestled safely into the glove of catcher Kurt Suzuki as the scene behind him exploded. The final out in a win D.C. had waited 79 years to celebrate coming on a swinging strikeout. With their 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday night — a crisp fall evening in Washington — a D.C. baseball team sealed its first postseason berth since 1933.
In the aftermath, the Washington Nationals did not hang their heads or speak in hushed tones. They talked of the work they'd done to get to this point, and of the fact that their lead in the National League East is still one of the largest in baseball with just more than two weeks to play.
Bryce Harper had his first four-hit game and pinch-hitter Tyler Moore launched a go-ahead homer off R.A. Dickey in the seventh inning to send the Washington Nationals past the punchless New York Mets 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Early Monday afternoon as Gio Gonzalez strolled through the visitors' clubhouse at Citi Field, his ears perked up as the televisions – tuned to MLBNetwork – began to discuss the Nationals' left-hander.
Gio Gonzalez earned his big league-leading 19th victory and the Washington Nationals backed him with three home runs to beat the listless New York Mets 5-1 Monday night at Citi Field.
The gap between the Washington Nationals and the Chicago Cubs was made perfectly clear this week at Nationals Park.
The most-talked about arm in Washington looked as strong as ever Sunday afternoon, propelling the Washington Nationals to a franchise-record 81st win over the St. Louis Cardinals, 4-3, in what could be Stephen Strasburg’s penultimate start at Nationals Park.
Stephen Strasburg returned to dominant, strike-throwing form against St. Louis after struggling in his last start. According to his manager, the All-Star ace will have two more opportunities at being "vintage Strasburg" this season.
