Anibal Sanchez unravels in sixth inning of 3-2 loss to rebuilding Miami.

Adams threw six scoreless innings at Class AAA Fresno before he was called up ahead of Friday's game.

The Marlins are worst in the league in many categories, including wins (four), and the Nationals need to take advantage.


  • Perspective

The nine-figure signing of the left-hander looks like money well spent, but the bullpen’s struggles threaten to sink the season.

In perhaps the finest start of the Nationals’ season, Corbin carries a no-hitter into the fifth inning and exits having allowed one run on two hits while walking one and striking out nine.

With normal leadoff hitter Adam Eaton getting a day off, the manager bumped the rookie up.

Another shaky bullpen performance makes things a little dicey late, but right-hander pitches into the sixth for second straight win.

Manager Dave Martinez repeated all spring training he wanted his players to get comfortable in the lineup, but for Game 15, Martinez decided his team needed a change.

Strasburg looks sharp early but eventually allows three home runs for the first time in two years in a 7-3 loss at Nationals Park.

Beyond the bullpen, the Nationals also need to fulfill Manager Dave Martinez's preseason promises with improved attention to detail.

  • Analysis

The Nationals have to decide — quickly — how much they value Rendon, how they view him compared with Nolan Arenado, how much they are willing to spend to keep this homegrown talent at home.

The 28-year-old infielder, the franchise's second-longest tenured player behind Ryan Zimmerman, values his role as a relied-upon depth option as he rolls into a 13th minor league season. Yet his hope is often met by reality staring right back.

Third base coach Bob Henley was searching for a way to fire up his team on the first day of spring training. Luckily for him, it was National Cabbage Day.

The bullpen allowed a late run in the loss, a continuation of Washington’s season-long frustration.

Kendrick hit the game-winning homer in the Nationals' 3-2 victory over the Pirates on Saturday.

Adam Eaton, Howie Kendrick homer in eighth, and Wander Suero and Sean Doolittle seal the deal.

One night after another bullpen collapse, the Nationals recalled the 2014 sixth-round pick from Class AAA Fresno.

Miller gave up the go-ahead three-run homer in a 6-3 loss to the Pirates on Friday night.

Anthony Rendon’s two homers went for naught as relief corps coughed up lead in eighth, then Pittsburgh’s Colin Moran blasted three-run homer in 10th of a 6-3 loss.

Scherzer is dealing with soreness in his lower-right leg after he was hit with a line drive last Sunday.
