Nats Nightly: Nationals shut out by Alex Meyer and the Angels, 7-0

Mike Rizzo and Kris Kline always said Alex Meyer had potential, and the Washington Nationals’ 2011 1st Round pick showed his former organization what he had in a 7-0 win for the Los Angeles Angels tonight in Anaheim.

A big seven-run seventh busted things open in the second game of four in GABP and the Nationals improved to 54-36 on the season with their second straight win over the Reds. Scherzer reached double-digits in Ks again, btw, and don't ask about Austin Adams' MLB debut...

Nationals now 53-36.


Nats Nightly: Nationals drop third straight, 5-1, get swept by Rangers...

Max Scherzer put together another solid start, but Rangers’ journeyman Austin Bibens-Dirkx matched him through seven and Texas went up in the eighth and took three straight in Washington, D.C. Scherzer collected his 2,000th K this afternoon, and reached double-digits in Ks for the fourth straight outing, but the Nats' offense struggled to figure Bibens-Dirkx out in what ended up a 5-1 loss. Up next, three with the Atlanta Braves in the nation's capital. Nationals now 38-24. Stephen Strasburg...

Nationals now 34-20.


Nats Nightly: Max Scherzer throws complete game, Nationals sweep Giants in AT&T

Max Scherzer reached 100 Ks on the season on his 100th pitch of the night on Wednesday night as the Nationals swept the San Francisco Giants with a 3-1 win in AT&T Park. Scherzer went the distance for his first complete game of the season and the seventh of his career and the Nationals took all three from the Giants to cap off a series that started with the face of the Nats' franchise getting plunked by a Giants' reliever. 33-19 overall for the Nationals, who get a day off before playing the...


Nats Nightly: Nationals retaliate with 6-3 win over Giants in AT&T...

Nats Nightly: Nationals drop series finale to Mariners, 4-2 in D.C.

Washington's Nationals took 2 of 3 from the Seattle Mariners in D.C, but dropped the series finale and had their three-game winning streak snapped in a 4-2 loss.

Nationals now 28-18. Up next, three with San Diego starting tomorrow night.
