Jackson (1-5) retired 12 of Washington’s first 13 batters and allowed two runs and four hits in 5 1-3 innings. He earned his first win under a $52 million, four-year contract he signed after leaving Washington as a free agent.
By Ben Finfer WASHINGTON (CBS) — There is a lot to be learned here in Washington D.C. Our capital is full of interesting schooling for those interested. There are the numerous government buildings where one […]
Bryce Harper’s first-ever Opening Day was a special one.
Bryce Harper homered, Ian Desmond had three extra-base hits, Danny Espinosa provided his first two RBIs of the season, and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 Wednesday night.
Adam LaRoche ended an 0-for-15 start to the season with homers in consecutive at-bats, Jayson Werth and Ian Desmond also homered, and the Washington Nationals opened an early interleague series by edging the Chicago White Sox 8-7 Tuesday night.
The future will only get brighter for Bryce Harper, who has a good chance to develop into a perennial All-Star and MVP candidate.
The Washington Nationals signed Jayson Werth to show them how to win. His game-ending homer Thursday night extended their surprising season.
aybe he’s biased, but the President of the United States like the White Sox’s chances this season.
Adam LaRoche hit two of Washington’s six homers, Ian Desmond had four RBIs and the Nationals beat the Chicago Cubs 11-5 on Tuesday night.
Ross Detwiler allowed four hits in seven shutout innings and Adam LaRoche homered Monday, giving the Washington Nationals their first winning season with a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

When Chicago native Mike Rizzo took over as Washington Nationals general manager in 2009, he knew the team had to get really bad before they could get really good.
Lesson learned: Don’t ask Bryce Harper about having a celebratory beer after a game.
I am giving you permission to “take a break” from your team. How long? You should walk away for as long as you need.
Manager Robin Ventura confirmed Tuesday that Adam Dunn is currently scheduled to start in left field for all three games at Wrigley Field this weekend.
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels has been suspended five games for intentionally throwing at Washington rookie Bryce Harper.
With two outs in the first inning of yesterday’s Nationals-Phillies game, Philadelphia pitcher Cole Hamels plunked rookie Bryce Harper in the back with a 93-mph fastball.
On Sunday, the onetime wide receiver strung together a series of goose eggs on Easter to dazzle in his 2012 debut and make it appear as if that day has perhaps finally arrived.
Jeff Samardzija felt he had something to prove. He certainly made his point on the mound. Samardzija dominated into the ninth, outpitching Jordan Zimmermann, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 Sunday for their first win of the Theo Epstein era.
