Latest Tyler Clippard Items
Ian Desmond and Tyler Clippard have been mainstays for the Nats in recent years. So far this season, they have struggled.
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.
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.
Nursing a 3-1 lead in the top of the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals - a team they had not beaten in eight consecutive tries - the Nationals nearly saw it slip away. Struggling relief pitcher Tyler Clippard took over for starter Gio Gonzalez to begin the inning, and needed 26 pitches to record his first out. He began by allowing a double to Jon Jay, a hard-hit liner off the Geico sign in right field. Jay took eight pitches before getting hold of a 81 mile per hour changeup.
Anthony Rendon homers and Drew Storen escapes a second-and-third threat in the eighth inning to help Washington secure a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. That snapped an eight-game losing streak against St. Louis dating to the 2012 playoff loss at Nationals Park.
The Nationals and Braves played yet another tight, wild ballgame Friday night. And the Nats once again came up on the wrong end.
After falling into a big 5-0 hole thanks to a poor start from Jordan Zimmermann, big homeruns from Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth brings the Nats to a 10-7 win over Miami.
The Nationals made several major decisions Tuesday afternoon, nearly finalizing their Opening Day roster after cutting infielders Tyler Moore and Jamey Carroll, plus pitchers Ryan Mattheus, Xavier Cedeno and Chris Young.
