The Nationals have placed Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day DL with a right hamstring strain and recalled Zach Walters from Class AAA Syracuse.
Zimmerman missed 44 games while on the DL earlier this season with a broken right thumb. The Nats are 33-19 with Zimmerman in their starting lineup this season and 22-24 without him.
LaRoche broke out of a July slump with a tiebreaking home run in the seventh, Anthony Rendon had three hits and the Washington Nationals rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 7-4 on Tuesday night.
The Nationals are preparing to be without Ryan Zimmerman once again after the veteran third baseman strained his hamstring during Tuesday night's win.
Behind a red-hot Ryan Zimmerman, the Nationals have boasted the NL's most-productive lineup this month.
Roark pitched seven strong innings, and Ryan Zimmerman and Wilson Ramos drove in three runs apiece to lead the Nationals over the Milwaukee Brewers 8-3 Saturday night.
The Nationals exploded for five runs in the first inning Saturday night, taking down Matt Garza and cruising over the Brewers.
Werth hit a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the ninth after the Brewers tied it in the top of the inning and the Washington Nationals beat Milwaukee 5-4 on Sunday afternoon.
Tanner Roark now leads the Nationals in wins and has a 2.91 ERA through 19 starts. He just keeps getting better.
No team in the NL has a better run differential (plus-61). That's a good predictor of which teams will make the playoffs. The starting rotation, missing Doug Fister for five weeks with an elbow injury and Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) for a month, still has a 3.28 ERA, third in the sport. The bullpen also ranks third overall (2.67 ERA). This is still a club built around its pitching. The offense just has to be good enough.
Ryan Zimmerman's go-ahead single in the 10th inning had the Nationals celebrating on the field. And the team also found out on Saturday that right-hander Jordan Zimmermann, who had Tommy John surgery in August 2009, doesn't have structural damage to his throwing shoulder or elbow now.
Werth homered and drove in four runs, and Tanner Roark pitched seven strong innings to lead the Washington Nationals to a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.
Ryan Zimmerman's RBI single in the 10th gave the Nationals a much-needed, 5-3 win over the Phillies.
With the Battle of the Beltways shifting to Camden Yards, the Nationals must decide whether to use Ryan Zimmerman (or someone else) as their designated hitter.
Ryan Zimmerman not only drove in the go-ahead run Sunday, he also made two ninth-inning throws at third base that helped lead the Nationals to victory.
Zimmerman told reporters Wednesday afternoon that there is no timetable for his return at this point.
"It's pretty tough," Zimmerman said, according to the Washington Post. "Those are things that happen. There's nothing you can really do about it. There's no reason to pout or feel sorry for yourself. You try to be here for these guys. We're playing good baseball, and I think we'll continue to do that before I get back. Hopefully, I'll get back sooner than later."
