The reliever also must participate in the league’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, but apparently will face no further punishment for what MLB called 'unacceptable' tweets.

  • Perspective

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.

Nationals rained out Saturday vs. Braves with more inclement weather on forecast

The game has yet to be rescheduled, and Sunday's forecast looks ominous.

  • Perspective

It’s about time the Nats get serious. If it takes a dugout argument for that to happen, fine.

The dugout argument between Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer shouldn’t be a concern. Actually, it’s about time for a team that’s worn a smiley face too long.

Six-man bullpen has Nationals banking on a quick return by Sean Doolittle

Doolittle said his Friday bullpen session did not go well, an ominous sign given the state of Washington's relief corps.

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.

  • Perspective

Baseball has been criticized for generations — and now the gripes are about the three ‘true outcomes’ — but somehow the sport always prevails.

Responding to raised rhetoric, Commissioner Rob Manfred defends modest contract offers as ‘sound decisions.’

Major League Baseball has never had its midseason showcase canceled because of weather.

Rob Manfred and Tony Clark dialed up the bitter rhetoric in remarks before the All-Star Game that pointed to a possible labor clash despite their shared interest in improving the game on the field.
