Todd Frazier and Zack Cozart each homered twice, and the Reds hit six in all - including Xavier Paul's pinch grand slam - while sending the Washington Nationals to their first loss of the season, 15-0 on Friday night. Washington was the last major league team without a loss. The Reds improved to 3-1 even though their top hitters haven't done much. Cincinnati has nine homers in the last two games, but none by Joey Votto or Jay Bruce. Dan Haren (0-1) had a rough time in his Nationals debut, giving up four homers and six runs in four innings.

Stephen Strasburg struck out nine over seven innings, Ian Desmond homered in the seventh to help give the righty his first win in June and the Washington Nationals beat the slumping Colorado Rockies 2-1 on Friday night. Making his 14th start of the season, Strasburg (4-6) allowed one run on five hits for his first victory since May 31. After DJ LeMahieu's RBI single in the third inning, Strasburg kept the Rockies scoreless. Colorado lost its fifth straight. Trailing 1-0 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth, Anthony Rendon singled off Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood and came around to score the tying run on Ryan Zimmerman's double into the right field corner.

Zack Wheeler pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the New York Mets piled up a season-high 17 hits in routing the Washington Nationals 11-3 on Saturday night. Eric Young Jr., Daniel Murphy, Josh Satin and Juan Lagares had three hits apiece for New York, which scored 11 runs for the second time in three days and won its third straight. The news wasn't all good for the injury-riddled Mets, though. First baseman Ike Davis left with a strained muscle on his right side after hitting a sacrifice fly in the third.

The Washington Nationals acquired center fielder Denard Span for his ability to hit leadoff and play defense. Saturday against Cincinnati, it was his fielding that stole the show. Span made pair of impressive catches to halt Reds rallies, Bryce Harper hit a two-run homer and scored twice, and Dan Haren had his best start of the young season as the Nationals beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-3. Span and Jayson Werth each had two hits for Washington, which has won the first three games of the four-game set. Harper's two RBIs gave him 18, a Nationals record for April.

Dan Haren's season-long struggles have hampered the Nationals. His latest outing was something different. He's got the win to prove it. Haren won for the first time since May 9, backed by home runs from Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond and Denard Span that powered the Washington to a 4-1 win over the New York Mets on Saturday. Haren (5-11) pitched seven innings, allowing one run and three hits. “How 'bout Haren? How 'bout that,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said, excitedly.

Dan Haren had been waiting to prove he belonged in Washington's vaunted starting rotation. After winning his last two starts, Haren is feeling a little better, and that's mostly because he's not overthrowing his fastball. “I'm not going to care about velocity anymore,” he said with a smile. “I'm sick of that. It just gives me problems. I'm just going to be myself out there. Whether it's 88 or 85 (mph), I don't really care. I know I can get people out.” Haren pitched eight sharp innings, Denard Span hit a two-run double and the Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 Thursday night.

If Dan Haren could erase the first inning, he would've stopped his losing skid. John Lannan tossed four-hit ball over eight innings against his former team, Ben Revere had three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 Monday night. Haren (4-10) came off the disabled list and took the loss after missing two weeks because of right shoulder inflammation. The righty allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings, striking out a season-high seven. He's 0-7 with a 6.66 ERA in his last nine starts, a career-worst losing streak, and 0-4 with a 5.54 ERA against Philadelphia.

Dan Haren has shown no signs of turning around a season-long slump. The right-hander allowed six runs over 3 1/3 innings with seven hits including his 19th home run surrendered and an RBI single to opposing starter Jhoulys Chacin, who pitched seven shutout innings as the Washington Nationals fell to the Colorado Rockies 7-1 on Saturday afternoon. “Same thing that's gone wrong the last few weeks,” Haren (4-9) said after losing his sixth straight decision, which snapped Washington's three-game winning streak.

Adam LaRoche was struggling so much at the plate, he decided to try something different. So he grabbed teammate Jayson Werth's bat. The move paid off as LaRoche hit his 15th home run of the season in the sixth inning to help lead the Nationals to a 3-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Prior to the home run, Washington's first baseman had just one hit in his previous 28 at bats. LaRoche said Ian Desmond suggested he try Werth's bat as Werth was hitting .337 in his last 51 games. "My bat has not been feeling very good lately so why not give someone else's a try," LaRoche said.

A Washington homestand that began with three losses to Atlanta was about to culminate in a six-game winning streak and the Nationals at .500 for the first time since mid-July. One swing of the bat rewrote that happy ending. Pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning and the San Francisco Giants beat the Nationals 4-3. Down to his last strike, Sanchez connected off closer Rafael Soriano (2-3) on a 3-2 pitch. The drive landed just inside the right field foul pole in the second deck.

The Pittsburgh Pirates weren't in the mood to celebrate after Andrew McCutchen hit two home runs in a 6-5 win over Washington. The victory, accomplished Monday night against the skidding Nationals, was meaningless in comparison to the ramifications that could come from a ninth-inning pitch thrown by All-Star closer Jason Grilli. After the pitch, the right-hander left with forearm tightness - leaving his manager and teammates somberly hoping for the best. “It's never good to see somebody in pain, let alone your All-Star closer,” starting pitcher Charlie Morton said.

Nearly a quarter of the way into the season, the Washington Nationals are hovering just two games above .500. It's not exactly where the Nationals or their fans thought they'd be after winning the NL East last year at 98-64, the best record in baseball. “We have not been very consistent,” third baseman Ryan Zimmerman said after the Nationals lost 13-4 to San Diego on Sunday as the Padres salvaged a split of their four-game series. “Part of that has been injuries, but you have to get past that.
