The rest of the Nationals' weekend rotation, however, has not yet been revealed.

Nationals starters have now thrown 34 1/3 scoreless innings in a row.

Washington's rotation had its best weekend of the year, leading to one of the team's best series of the season.

With Doug Fister returning Thursday and Stephen Strasburg close as well, the Nationals have decisions to make as their rotation regains its form.

"Strikeouts are very nice. Don’t get me wrong. But then again, so are groundball outs and double plays."

The little leaguers also love Bryce Harper.

The left-hander's velocity over the past two games is his best two-game stretch since last April.

After adding 10-plus pounds this offseason, the fun-loving lefty is throwing well and feeling good so far this spring.

Results don't tell the whole story for Espinosa, who is getting more comfortable hitting solely from the right side.

The veteran outfielder is winning fans with a hot start to his Nationals tenure.
