This time, Bryce Harper made the catch. And yeah, it was a relief. Harper made a game-saving grab in right field and had a couple of big hits at the plate to help the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1 in 10 innings on Wednesday. San Francisco had runners on first and second with one out in the eighth when Harper had to dive to grab Hunter Pence's sinking liner in the gap, keeping it tied at 1. He banged up his left knee on the play, but managed to stay in the game.

Ian Desmond's three hits included a two-run homer and an RBI double, and Danny Espinosa and Kurt Suzuki also drove in runs with doubles, helping the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago Cubs 7-3 for their season-high fifth consecutive victory. Despite playing without Bryce Harper (ingrown toenail) or Jayson Werth (injured right hamstring), the Nationals won for the seventh time in eight games. Ross Detwiler (2-3) gave up two runs in 6 2/3 innings, and Craig Stammen got the last seven outs.

Tyler Moore knew what Clint Hurdle was thinking. With one out and first base open in the eighth inning of a one-run game, Moore fully expected the Pittsburgh Pirates' manager to intentionally walk the batter in front of him. Moore was hitting .158 and had struck out six times in the three-game series. “It fires you up,” Moore said. “I would have done the same thing.” The move backfired, though, as Moore followed the walk to Adam LaRoche by hitting a three-run homer off rookie reliever Bryan Morris to seal the Washington Nationals' 6-2 victory over the Pirates on Sunday.

Jordan Zimmermann turned in another dominant performance with two-hit ball over eight innings, Ian Desmond hit a two-run homer in the fourth and the Washington Nationals finally beat the Atlanta Braves, 2-0 Wednesday night. The Braves had won five in a row this season over their NL East rival, and nine straight dating to last season. Zimmermann (5-1) made sure that streak ended with what is starting to become a typical outing, snapping a three-game losing streak that had knocked the Nationals under .500.

Jordan Zimmermann watched Gio Gonzalez pitch a gem for Washington, and just followed his lead. Zimmermann was terrific in his first career shutout and the Nationals limited the Cincinnati Reds to one hit for the second straight game in a 1-0 victory on Friday night. Zimmermann (4-1) struck out four and walked one while improving to 3-0 with a 1.36 ERA in five career games against Cincinnati. The right-hander needed only 91 pitches to record his second complete game of the season and No. 3 for his career.

Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is fine with manager Davey Johnson's plan to shuffle the lineup after the team dropped below .500 with its ninth loss in 12 games. Even told Johnson he'd be OK moving out of his No. 2 slot in the batting order after Washington's 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday completed a three-game sweep. Something needs to change, Werth knows. “We need to jumble it up, and we need to switch the 'mojo' a little bit,” Werth said, sitting in front of his locker in the home clubhouse at Nationals Park.

There is a time and a place for everything. At least, so it seems. Still, some priorities change over time. Different people draw different conclusions from the same statement. It's a matter of experience. So when I hear, “In the spring, a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love,” it gets lost on me. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, that's so old (old) school. It's got to be an age thing. At 55, nothing fancy turns lightly and my cynical side leans to romance being overrated … most of the time.

Bryan Harper has a good idea what Robin, Dr. Watson and Pokey have to deal with every day. It seems like the Hagerstown Suns relief pitcher can't go anywhere without someone asking about someone else in his life. Robin has Batman, Watson plays second fiddle to Sherlock Holmes and Pokey, he deals with Gumby. For Harper, the first thing he usually hears after someone says “Hi” is “How's your brother Bryce?” That's Bryce as in Bryce Harper, 20-year-old phenom, reigning National League Rookie of the Year and starting left fielder of the Washington Nationals.

Ian Desmond slapped his hands together as hard as he could when he approached home plate, about to score the go-ahead run in the 11th inning. His rough day was ending with a very good moment. Desmond made two errors that helped the Cincinnati Reds take the game to extra innings, then led off the 11th with his first home run of the season, rallying the Washington Nationals to a 7-6 victory Saturday. “A lot of mixed feelings right now,” Desmond said. Great American Ball Park can do that to anybody.
