Just when it looked like Washington would be swept by the Angels, Jayson Werth's timely RBIs and a walk-off from Adam LaRoche helped the Nats escape with a win.
Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard mentioned the possibility that he might be tipping off opponents to what pitch is coming.
In the first major league matchup featuring twentysomething stars Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, it was a guy born two decades earlier, Raul Ibanez, who came through with the biggest hit.
Though it was billed as star-studded showcase of two young stars, it came down to pitching in Washington's 4-2 loss to Anaheim.
Asked what about Bryce Harper impresses him, Mike Trout began with a stock-sounding answer.
Bryce Harper and Mike Trout understand the comparisons between each other, but Harper downplays the matchup.
Bryce Harper and Mike Trout were supposed to be the stars of Monday's game between the Nationals and the Los Angeles Angels. Instead, Washington's bullpen and defense were the difference late in a disappointing 4-2 loss.
They knew it was coming. Angels outfielder Mike Trout and Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper have been compared to each other for years: Same approximate height, weight, age.

Mike Trout and his Los Angeles Angels teammates come to Washington for a three-game series at Nationals Park, the first time that Trout and Harper will be on the field as Major League Baseball competitors.
Ian Kinsler took off toward second base and kept on going.
What began as a routine walk quickly turned into a slapstick farce for the Los Angeles Angels.
Max Scherzer gave Detroit's beleaguered bullpen a bit of a breather.
This was a rare sight: Mike Trout looking overmatched at the plate.
After the bullpen blew a lead in spectacular fashion for the second straight night, not even Mike Trout's late homer could rescue the Los Angeles Angels from another disheartening loss.
Even after every momentum swing, dramatic hit and terrible relief performance in an 11-inning game, the Oakland Athletics still were unshakably confident somebody would pull them through.
"You understand it. We all are sitting down, going over it. We all had a great understanding about it," he said.
"Albert's Albert. If he tells you something, he's going to do it," Trout said. "I'm not surprised he said that, because I've seen it before."
