James Wagner, who was moved to the Nationals beat in the middle of the 2012 season, signs off as he heads to cover the Mets.

"As our lineup gets some flow to it and gets rolling, I think we’ll be in good shape. All in all, I like where we’re at."

Looking back at the handful of winnable games that changed the season and division race.

Over or not, the Nationals may be without Ryan Zimmerman, Clint Robinson, and Michael A. Taylor for parts or all of the rest of the season. It's not getting any easier.

At the worst time possible, the Nationals went 12-17 in August while the Mets went 20-8.

Jayson Werth: "You’ve got to find a way to win. You’ve got to find a way to overcome it. We’re in it right now."

"If we had that answer, we certainly would fix it," Matt Williams said.

"We've got to keep smiling and keep laughing and try to have to some fun. We've got a long ways to go," Bryce Harper said.

It was a bad, bad weekend for the Nats. But all is not lost as Washington looks ahead to its August slate of games.

Entering a stretch of 21 straight days of games, the Nationals hold a two-game lead over the Mets.
