Entering Monday, Taylor did not have a hit since August 15 and only 21 at-bats since then.

Washington grabs an early four-run lead but can’t hold it in an 8-5 defeat as an unproven bullpen falters.

Meanwhile, Victor Robles will start for the second consecutive day for Washington.

The first-year manager has earned respect from his players because of the team’s late-season play and for his composure and willingness to learn. The front office and owners have responded by voicing their support but are offering no guarantees.

The Nationals play two games in Miami before returning home for their final homestand of the season.

Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon homer, Tanner Roark is sharp, bullpen is on point — and it all begs the question: Where was this when it mattered?

The 28-year-old continues to handle big league lefties.

Atlanta pitchers offer 14 free passes, but Washington’s starter fails to make it out of third inning after a recurrence of a previous injury.

In an auction full of memorabilia, Bob Miller's contribution stands out.

The NL Rookie of the Year race is tight, and both young stars showed out in Atlanta’s 10-5 win.

No one got ejected, but Harper and his manager came close.

Tanner Roark gets the start Sunday but beyond that, the Nationals' rotation plans are jumbled.

The matchup features the top two candidates for NL Rookie of the Year.

Washington’s rookie outfielder does a little bit of everything in a 4-3 loss that offers hope for what’s on the horizon.

Robles was supposed to bat first against the Cubs last Sunday before rain led to a postponement. Now he'll get his chance.

The Nationals bullpen has changed for many reasons, including the struggles of a lefty this team planned around all year.

Washington wins its fifth straight in the pitcher’s best start since he came off the disabled list.

Washington's rotation might suddenly be too crowded for the reliable veteran.

Soto’s rookie year compares to the best age-19 seasons of all-time, and his plate discipline means it should be sustainable.

Fedde's win in Philadelphia on Tuesday was the best start of the young right-hander's career.
