WASHINGTON -- Roy Oswalt's desire to be traded from the Houston Astros has apparently piqued the interest of the Washington Nationals. Major League Baseball's Web site, mlb.com, reported Sunday that the Nationals are looking to improve their rotation and have expressed interest in trading for Houston's right-handed ace, according to a baseball source. The Nats have not confirmed that they have interest in the Astros' ace, and Oswalt's agent, Bob Garber, did not return a phone message Sunday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — After a crisp first two games, the Washington Nationals came unglued Sunday. There were missed relay throws, muffed double plays and communication problems in the outfield. A balk plated an Atlanta run, and the Nationals struggled to put together any offense against Tim Hudson — again. Hudson pitched seven solid innings in another strong start against Washington and Brian McCann had four RBIs in the Nationals’ 11-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves. Hudson (1-0)

Three bad pitches suddenly spoiled an otherwise solid outing for Jordan Zimmermann. The Washington starter gave up three runs in the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs went on to beat the Nationals 4-3 Thursday. Chicago broke a 1-all when Reed Johnson reached on a two-out single and Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena hit consecutive home runs. “I had two strikes on Johnson and threw a fastball and he got a base hit and threw a halfway decent slider to Ramirez,” Zimmermann said.

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 Washington Nationals didn't have a close shave, and neither did Davey Johnson. The 70-year-old manager still looked closer to 80 after the Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 Friday night, sporting the scraggly beginnings of facial hair he had vowed to keep until his team started hitting. Five runs weren't enough, even though it was the most the Nationals had scored in a week. There was also a four-run fifth, the first time Washington had put up four or more in an inning in almost a month.

A familiar cast of characters helped the Washington Nationals complete a lopsided, season-opening three-game sweep of the payroll-slashing, talent-trading Miami Marlins. Now should come more of a test: A visit to the reigning NL Central champion Cincinnati Reds starting Friday. In Washington's 6-1 victory over Miami in the finale Thursday - the combined series score was 11-1 - Jayson Werth tacked on a three-run homer, Ryan Zimmerman's three hits included a two-run double, Bryce Harper had two more hits, and right-hander Jordan Zimmermann went six innings.

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.

Rickie Weeks had three hits and Aramis Ramirez added two doubles for Milwaukee, which twice benefitted from Washington outfielders losing fly balls in the sun. The Brewers (79-73) are 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild-card berth. Washington (92-60) leads the NL East by 4 1/2 games over Atlanta, a 2-1 winner over Philadelphia on Sunday.

Stephen Strasburg chuckled the moment the subject was broached. His response sounded as if it had been memorized off a note card. “I have no clue how many innings I'm going to throw this year,” he said. “I've answered that question multiple times, and nobody's said anything to me. I feel great right now.” The All-Star right-hander keeps hearing the question because he's in the middle of a real head-scratcher. If the Washington Nationals are still looking like World Series contenders in September, will they really follow through with the plan to shut down their ace a month early?
