  • Nationals' Harold Ramirez: Goes deep in win

    Ramirez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a 5-4 win against the Reds on Saturday.

    After Cincinnati tallied two runs in the top of the first inning, Ramirez knotted up the score with a two-run blast in the bottom of the frame. The long ball ended a 45-game homerless stretch for the veteran dating back to April 15. Ramirez went deep a career-high 12 times last season, but he's homered only twice through 61 games this year.

  • Nationals' Jacob Young: Swipes two more bags Saturday

    Young went 2-for-3 with a run, an RBI and two stolen bases in Saturday's 5-4 win against Cincinnati.

    Young plated the winning run in the close contest with a single to left field in the eighth inning. He also stole a pair of bases for the second straight day, increasing his total to 24 on the campaign. Young was slumping entering the All-Star break, but he's come out hot to start the second half, going 4-for-6 with the four thefts through two games.

  • Nationals' Kyle Finnegan: Nabs another save Saturday

    Finnegan earned a save against the Reds on Saturday, striking out one batter in a perfect ninth inning.

    Finnegan earned a save in Washington's first game of the second half Friday, and he was back on the mound one day later to close things out again. The right-hander did so without much stress, retiring the side in order on 15 pitches. Finnegan is up to 27 saves on the campaign, third most in the majors and one short of the career-high mark he established last season.

  • Nationals' MacKenzie Gore: Struggles in short start

    Gore allowed three runs on two hits and four walks while striking out two batters over two innings in a no-decision against Cincinnati on Saturday.

    Gore allowed a pair of runs in the first inning and another in the second before giving way to a reliever. He needed 67 pitches to get through the pair of frames, and only 37 of his offerings were strikes. All three of the runners who scored against Gore got aboard by way of a walk, and the southpaw's four free passes tied his second-highest mark this season. This was Gore's shortest start of the campaign and the third straight outing in which he has failed to complete five frames. Over that span, he's given up 12 earned runs over 10 innings.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Getting day off versus LHP

    Winker isn't in Washington's lineup Saturday against the Reds.

    Winker and his .667 OPS against southpaws will take a seat on the bench to begin Saturday's game as left-hander Nick Lodolo starts on the mound for Cincinnati. Harold Ramirez will fill in as the Nationals' DH and bat fourth.

  • Nationals' Luis Garcia: Idle against lefty

    Garcia isn't in the Nationals' lineup for Saturday's game against Cincinnati.

    The lefty-hitting Garcia will take a seat Saturday as the lefty-throwing Nick Lodolo prepares to start on the bump for the Reds. Ildemaro Vargas will take over at the keystone and bat sixth.

  • Nationals' Keibert Ruiz: Resting Saturday

    Ruiz isn't in the Nationals' lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

    Ruiz will take a seat Saturday after hitting his seventh home run of the season during Friday's victory. In his place, Riley Adams will start behind the dish and bat fifth.

  • Nationals' Lane Thomas: Pilfers 24th bag

    Thomas went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Reds.

    The outfielder continues to do damage on the basepaths in July. Thomas is up to 24 steals on the season, and seven of them have come in his last 12 games -- a stretch in which he's batting .319 (15-for-47). His homer drought stands at 24 games, however, something that won't help the Nationals extract maximum value for the 28-year-old if they elect to move him at the trade deadline.

  • Nationals' Keibert Ruiz: Swats seventh homer

    Ruiz went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's win over the Reds.

    The backstop took Frankie Montas deep in the fourth inning, capping a four-run outburst for the Nationals that put them in the lead for good. Ruiz has seven homers on the season, but three of them have come in his last eight games -- a stretch in which he's batting .300 (9-for-30) with two doubles, six runs and eight RBI.

  • Nationals' Jacob Young: Two steals in Friday's win

    Young went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and two stolen bases in Friday's win over the Reds.

    The Nationals ran wild on Tyler Stephenson and Cincy's pitching staff, going 5-for-5 in steal attempts on the night. Young had only one stolen base and zero multi-hit performances over his last 16 games before the All-Star break, a stretch in which he slashed a rough .151/.237/.170, but his defense in center field has kept him in the lineup despite his struggles at the plate.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: Swipes two more bags

    Winker went 1-for-1 with three walks, two runs scored and two stolen bases in Friday's 8-5 win over the Reds.

    With his two steals Friday, Winker's up to 14 stolen bases on the year -- the 30-year-old outfielder hadn't recorded more than one stolen base in any of his previous seven campaigns. While Winker went just 2-for-16 in his six games prior to the All-Star break, he's had a strong bounce-back campaign overall in Washington, slashing .263/.38/.434 with 11 homers, 43 RBI and 49 runs scored.

  • Nationals' Juan Yepez: Two more hits, first homer

    Yepez went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and a second run scored in Friday's 8-5 win over Cincinnati.

    Yepez took Frankie Montas deep in the third inning, driving a two-strike pitch over the left-field fence to extend Washington's lead to 7-1. It's the first homer of the year for Yepez, though he's swung the bat well since he was called up July 5 -- the outfielder has at least one hit in all 11 games he's appeared in. Overall, Yepez is slashing an eye-popping .390/.468/.610 with six RBI and eight runs scored across 47 plate appearances as he continues to make a case for an everyday role.

  • Nationals' Kyle Finnegan: Notches final out for 26th save

    Finnegan earned the save in Friday's 8-5 win over the Reds, allowing one walk before recording the final out.

    It didn't appear that Finnegan would be needed Friday, as the Nationals carried an 8-1 lead into the ninth. However, Jose Ferrer and Derek Law would combine to allow four runs in the frame, forcing the Nats to turn to Finnegan with two outs. The right-hander would issue a walk before ultimately getting Elly De La Cruz to ground out to seal an 8-5 win. The 32-year-old Finnegan has been excellent for Washington this year -- he's up to 26 saves, third-most in the league, with a 2.43 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 42:14 K:BB across 40.2 innings.

  • Nationals' Patrick Corbin: Grabs second win

    Corbin (2-9) earned the win Friday over the Reds, allowing one run on three hits while striking out six over six innings.

    Corbin was sharp Friday, holding Cincinnati to a lone third-inning run en route to his first win since May 10. The 35-year-old southpaw had struggled in four starts prior to the All-Star break, allowing 14 runs over 23 innings. Overall, Corbin sports a 5.35 ERA with a 1.49 WHIP and 79:36 K:BB through 20 starts (111 innings) this season. He's currently lined up for a home matchup with San Diego next week in his next outing.
