Bryce Harper returned from an ankle injury to single and score as a pinch-hitter, and Roger Bernadina had a tiebreaking hit in the seventh inning as the Washington Nationals earned a split of the day-night doubleheader with a 5-2 victory Saturday night. Harper injured his ankle in the opener and was lifted after the second inning. The Braves won the first game 4-0 behind Ben Sheets' strong performance. Bernadina, who entered as a defensive replacement after Harper fouled a bunt off his left ankle in the first inning of the first game, had five hits on the day including a seventh inning, go-ahead RBI single in the nightcap.

Have you ever walked into a situation and thought to yourself, this is too good to be true? It happened to me recently when I attended an Orioles game against the Washington Nationals at Camden Yards in Baltimore. My sons wanted to take me to a game for a Father's Day gift, and I told them I wanted to see the Nationals play. I wanted to watch Bryce Harper, the Nationals' 19-year-old rookie sensation, play. So we arrived at the stadium early on a Friday evening, and I walked into the stadium before anyone else in my family and found my seat in the center field bleachers.

Gio Gonzalez knew he wasn't going back to the mound after throwing 102 pitches in 101-degree heat. The game was tied in the middle of the sixth inning, so if Gonzalez was to get his 12th win of the season, the Washington Nationals needed to score against the Colorado Rockies before making three outs. And that's precisely what happened. Gonzalez pitched six innings of three-hit ball, and the Nationals used a three-run sixth to post a 4-1 victory Saturday. Gonzalez (12-3)

All-Star shortstop Ian Desmond hit his 14th home run, and the Washington Nationals became the latest team to beat up on Tim Lincecum, pounding the struggling right-hander hard early and often Tuesday night in a 9-3 victory. The opener of the three-game series between first-place teams was barely a contest. Jordan Zimmermann (5-6) pitched a rain-shortened six innings and again enjoyed the generous run support that had evaded him for so long, ensuring the Nationals would wake up on the Fourth of July with a 3 1/2-game cushion over the New York Mets atop the NL East.

Three All-Stars, first place on the Fourth of July and a 19-year-old sensation who is mature enough to defer to a 40-year-old from another team. Baseball in the nation's capital hasn¿t looked this good in decades. And decades. And decades.Instead of holding news conferences to tell everyone how good they hope to be, the Washington Nationals can finally start bragging about what they¿ve done. The NL East leaders put Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez and Ian Desmond at the featured table Tuesday to discuss their selections to next week¿s All-Star game.“We¿ve set new standards here,” Desmond said.Desmond knows plenty about the previous standards.

Michael Morse had four hits, including the go-ahead homer in the eighth inning after Washington had blown a four-run lead, and the Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 5-4 on Friday night. Andrelton Simmons' two-run homer off Ross Detwiler capped Atlanta's four-run seventh inning which erased the Nationals' 4-0 lead. Morse had a quick answer by hitting right-hander Chad Durbin's first pitch over the wall in right field leading off the eighth. The Nationals, who swept a three-game series in Atlanta on May 25-27, are 5-1 against the Braves this season.

 Edwin Jackson was pounded once again at Coors Field. But the Washington starter wasn't about to blame the ballpark for his poor showing. “The park is definitely not an excuse,” Jackson said. “At the end of the day, you have to go out and get the job done and I didn't do a great job today.” Marco Scutaro's RBI single in the 11th inning gave Colorado an 11-10 victory over Nationals on Thursday after the Rockies squandered a seven-run lead. Jackson is 0-1 with a 17.40 ERA in four starts at Coors Field.

Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 to win a fast-ballers' duel with newbie Chris Archer, Joel Peralta managed to pitch without having his glove inspected, and the Washington Nationals snapped a four-game losing streak Wednesday night with a 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Strasburg (9-1) won his sixth consecutive start by allowing five hits and two runs over seven innings while throwing 111 pitches, the second most in his career, while Tyler Clippard picked up his 10th save. The Nationals needed all the pitching they could get - because the lineup didn't produce a hit after the first inning.

Despite losing three games to the New York Yankees in his team's highest-profile test this season, Davey Johnson felt good about the Washington Nationals' performance. One thing, however, was nagging him after the Yankees completed their sweep with a 4-1 win Sunday - the offensive struggles of third baseman Ryan Zimmerman. “What really concerns me is we've got to get Zim going,” Johnson said. “We've got to get Zim to a happy place.” Zimmerman went 0 for 4 in the game and 1 for 13 in the series to drop his average to .229.

Many people were wondering where Andrew Yacyk was at the beginning of the 2012 baseball season, but not head coach Drew Crawford. The North Hagerstown junior started the season slow at the plate with only six hits in his first eight games, but the Hubs were still winning. “I wasn't worried about him,” said Crawford. “He had a good mental approach and it was just a matter of staying patient.” That is exactly what he did as the season progressed, a season in which the Hubs finished with a 20-2-1 record and a berth in the state Class 3A semifinals.
