WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Nationals signed right-hander Drew Storen to a deal worth more than $1.5 million on Wednesday, a day after selecting him with the 10th pick in the draft. Storen was 7-1 with seven saves and a 3.80 ERA during his sophomore season at Stanford. The Nationals assigned him to Class A Hagerstown. "His goals and aspirations matched up with our time frame and he wanted to get out and sign right away," acting general manager Mike Rizzo said. Storen was the Nationals' second pick in Tuesday's draft.

While the Lakewood BlueClaws were popping a little bubbly in their locker room, the Hagerstown Suns were still out on the field tending to some classroom activities. The BlueClaws celebrated a first-half Northern Division title in the South Atlantic League with an 8-3 victory over the Suns on Thursday at Municipal Stadium. While they celebrated, the Suns got some extra work on what manager Matt LeCroy termed "PFP. " "It's Pitchers' Fielding Practice," said LeCroy. "It's a teaching situation, and we've got to do it now and nip it in the bud. " In the top of the first inning, Lakewood's Anthony Gose sent a hopper to Suns first baseman Tyler Moore, who bobbled the ball.

Ryan Zimmerman hit a run-scoring double in his return from the disabled list to spark a six-run seventh-inning as the Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-6 on Tuesday night. Zimmerman had missed 58 games because of an injured abdominal muscle. He was given ovations from the crowd in pregame introductions and for each of his at-bats, with the loudest cheers coming after his double down the right-field line drove in the Nationals' first run of the seventh. Washington's last four runs in the inning scored with two outs.

Rick Ankiel hit two home runs, and Livan Hernandez allowed one run over six innings and drove in a run to lead the Washington Nationals to a 5-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night. Ankiel led off the bottom of the first with a homer to center field. It was the second time this season the Nationals' opening hitter homered - Jayson Werth did so on June 16 against St. Louis. His homer in the fifth inning landed deep in the second deck in left. It was the fifth multihomer game of his career, and the solo shots gave Ankiel five home runs this season.

Drew Storen has had an excellent first full season in the major leagues, pitching very effectively as the closer for the Washington Nationals. In the first game of a doubleheader against Los Angeles on Thursday, his outing was quite forgettable. Storen (6-3) allowed three runs in the top of the ninth as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Nationals 7-4. The nightcap was rained out. Entering the game with the score tied at 4, Storen got an out, hit Jerry Sands, allowed a single to Rod Barajas before striking out Trent Oeltjen.

Michael Morse hit a grand slam, Bryce Harper also homered and the Washington Nationals became the latest team to tag a struggling Johan Santana in their 6-4 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night. Ross Detwiler tossed six solid innings and the Nationals sent Santana to his fifth loss in the last five starts. Handed a 2-0 lead, the two-time Cy Young Award winner was perfect through three innings. But the NL East leaders strung together four consecutive hits in the fourth, capped by Morse's 12th homer.

Craig Stammen pitched four perfect innings after ace Stephen Strasburg left with a strained right oblique, Denard Span tripled and scored two runs, and the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 on Friday night. Strasburg lasted just two innings before leaving the shortest outing of his career. He will head back to Washington to have his side examined. The victory snapped a two-game skid for Washington, which trimmed its second-place deficit in the NL East to 4½ games behind the Braves.

Over the last week, the struggling Washington Nationals have fired their hitting coach and demoted the team's former closer. Whatever changes the organization makes over the remainder of the 2013 season, removing manager Davey Johnson from his post will not be one of them. Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo says there's “no chance that he won't be the manager until the end of the season.” Washington is in second place, but sports a frustrating 51-54 record and was well behind Atlanta in the NL East standings.

Hanley Ramirez doubled to highlight a two-run 10th inning Saturday night, and the Los Angeles Dodgers used seven pitchers to again tame the tepid offense of the Washington Nationals in a 3-1 victory. Adrian Gonzalez led off the 10th with a double off Craig Stammen (5-5). Ramirez followed immediately with an RBI double for his third hit of the night, then scored two batters later on Andre Ethier's sacrifice fly. Ethier won Friday's game with a ninth-inning homer, and the first two games of the series yielded outcomes that kept the teams trending in opposite directions.

Ian Desmond doubled home the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and the Washington Nationals made manager Davey Johnson's “fun day” even better Sunday with a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins to complete a sweep of a day-night doubleheader. Desmond's drive to left-center completed a comeback from a three-run deficit - making it the Nationals' biggest come-from-behind victory of the season - and pulled Washington back to .500 after a 3-2 homestand. Jordan Zimmermann dominated the first game, allowing two hits over seven innings in a 7-0 win that followed a Nationals team meeting and prompted Johnson to proclaim: “This is kind of a fun day.” The Nationals, near the bottom of the majors in many offensive categories, have come from two runs down to win only twice this season.

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.

Rookies in the postseason, the Washington Nationals played like poised veterans. The Nationals escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, Tyler Moore blooped a two-out, two-run single in the eighth and Washington beat the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Sunday in an NL playoff opener. They have just four players with postseason experience on the roster. But they have the lead. “Not many people have probably watched too many Nationals games, but we have a great starting rotation and a great bullpen,” said Ian Desmond, who singled for his third hit in the go-ahead rally.

A smile crept across Adam LaRoche's face while he rounded the bases Tuesday night after hitting his career-high 33rd homer to become the third Nationals player with 100 RBIs in a season, another celebratory moment for NL East champion Washington during a 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. When the Nationals Park gates opened, early-arriving fans in the crowd of 33,546 were treated to a video montage of alcohol-spraying and general mirth-making from a night earlier, when the home team clinched its first division title since moving from Montreal in 2005.

The Washington Nationals brought postseason baseball back to the nation's capital for the first time since 1933, earning a playoff spot Thursday night with a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. “Nats Clinch” flashed on the scoreboard as Washington ensured at least an NL wild-card spot behind Ross Detwiler's six strong innings and Ryan Zimmerman's RBI double. A crowd of 30,359 stood and cheered in the ninth inning, then got even louder when Drew Storen struck out Hanley Ramirez to end it. Manager Davey Johnson saluted the fans as he left the field and the team wore caps acknowledging the playoff berth.

John Lannan pitched 5 2-3 shutout innings in his first start since replacing Stephen Strasburg in Washington's starting rotation, and the Nationals lowered their magic number for clinching a playoff berth to six with a 2-0 win over the punchless New York Mets on Wednesday night.

Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 and allowed one run in six innings for his 15th win in what could be one of his final starts of the season as the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 on Tuesday night. For weeks, the impending shutdown of Strasburg has been the talk of baseball. Though the Nationals haven't said exactly what their limit for the star right-hander is, it's thought to be between 160 and 180 innings. After this start, his fourth straight win, when he allowed four hits and walked one, he has thrown 145 1/3 innings.
