The Washington Nationals have contacted commissioner Bud Selig to make their pitch to play host to an All-Star Game in their Anacostia Waterfront ballpark, which is scheduled to open in 2008.
ATLANTA — Manny Acta, as Nationals fans know by now, is optimistic even in the most dismal situations.
TORONTO — One month ago, Micah Bowie was an aging, left-handed reliever who had a decent season going in the Washington Nationals' bullpen but hardly could be considered a crucial roster figure.
BALTIMORE — A benefit of interleague play for the Washington Nationals is a road series just a short bus ride away every year to provide a temporary respite to the typical travel grind.
Bowie said he is running and throwing on flat ground but does not have a timetable for his return.
"When he got that pitch, I'm going, 'We're going to win this game,' " Bowie said. "The momentum shift coming out of that ... it's a huge lift for the team."
