Commissioner Rob Manfred faces age-old challenge, with huge long-term stakes.

The D.C. flag headbands will be available at Nationals Park on Friday.

With his team at .500 as the second half begins, Washington’s rookie manager faces questions about bullpen workload and pitching decisions.

Strasburg will start Friday night, but Zimmerman won't. Matt Adams gets the nod instead.

Papa John’s is out at FedEx Field, but Redskins will continue partnership with local franchisees

Emails from fans who attended 1969 game at RFK Stadium testify to the enduring power of such moments.

  • Analysis

The moment Baltimore fans have long feared is almost here.

The American League won Tuesday’s game, hosted in Nationals Park, in an 8-6 victory that featured extra innings and a record 10 home runs.

“D.C. sports are so hot right now,” and at Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game, fans celebrated this new era.

After surrendering a three-run homer in the eighth inning, Milwaukee pitcher apologizes, adds there is ‘no excuse for what was said.’

Teams’ combined 10 home runs smash record set in 1971 Midsummer Classic.

Aaron Judge got things started with a homer off Max Scherzer that left the Nats ace saying, in an in-game interview, "I learned my lesson." The Yankee's star's blast was the first of eight solo homers and 10 total dingers.
