Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Bryce Harper's two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted Washington to an 8-6 victory over Atlanta on Saturday. The blast enabled the Nats, who led 6-3 at one point, to win the series, following a 9-2 decision in Friday's series opener. It also moved Washington over .500 for the first time this season. Harper, who ended up 2- for-4 and scored twice, has gone deep six times in his last three games. Cody Martin (1-1) allowed a leadoff hit from Yunel Escobar before striking out Jayson Werth. He then served up the winning blast, which landed just to the left of center field. It made a winner of Drew Storen (1-0), who tossed a perfect top of the frame. Ryan Zimmerman clubbed a three-run homer while Jose Lobaton added a two-run shot among his three hits for the Nationals, who have won four of their last five games at home and six of seven overall.

Chicago White Sox: take a flyer on Rafael Soriano
isports web - almost 2 years
In what has been one of the most anxiety inducing offseasons for Chicago White Sox fans in recent history, spring training is finally coming to an end with the season starting in just over a week. The time is now to find out if the Rick Hahn renaissance movement is for real as the division is ripe for the taking. On paper, the Sox should be ready to make this October a memorable one. Unfortunately, seasons are not played on paper and every team has a chance to prove themselves on the field. As the roster continues to whittle down to the final 25 man squad, few positions still remain in play for possible improvement. Second base, third base, and veteran bullpen pitchers are not areas for immediate concern, but an upgrade could be in order if the team finds themselves itself in a battle for a playoff spot. While second base is still open, the position will be filled with plenty of in-house options. Conor Gillaspie is the incumbent third baseman, but his limited production leaves open t ...

How To Brew Store-Bought Coffee Beans Into A Quality Cup Of Joe
Huffington Post - about 2 years
In a perfect world, your kitchen would be equipped with a personal barista. Every morning, at the sound of your alarm, he or she would begin grinding freshly roasted coffee beans and brew you the very best, most perfect cup of coffee. This is not the world in which we live. Our world has fewer in-house baristas and more coffee-stained blouses from failed attempts at carrying a flimsy to-go cup and a laptop bag on a torturously packed subway car. But there's a light at the end of this coffee-stained tunnel: Store-bought coffee beans can result in tasty, energizing coffee (something no world should be without). Katie Carguilo, the 2012 US Barista Champion and the leader of Counter Culture Coffee's West Coast Quality Control department, spoke with The Huffington Post about the best practices to ensure a quality, home-brewed cup from a bag. Abide by these Six Bagged Bean Commandments and your mornings may very well feel perfect. Buy whole beans. When presented with the optio ...

Juan Francisco broke a scoreless tie with a two-run double in the eighth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Washington Nationals, 4-0, in the second installment of a four-game series. Martin Maldonado added an RBI double and scored on Jeff Bianchi's single after Francisco put the Brewers on top, and four relievers -- John Axford, Jim Henderson, Michael Gonzalez, and Francisco Rodriguez -- combined to shut down the Nationals over the final 3 2/3 innings to snap the club's six-game slide. Drew Storen (2-2) gave up four runs in relief of Stephen Strasburg, who did not factor in the decision despite scattering three hits and four walks while striking out eight over seven scoreless inning. Wily Peralta matched Strasburg pitch for pitch before having to exit due to a left hamstring injury with one out in the sixth inning. Peralta had given up just three hits and two walks while fanning five. Axford finished ...

Ben Berkon: Will the Washington Nationals Be the Next Baseball Dynasty?
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
In 2012, the Washington Nationals advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 1981. Just to give you a sense of how long ago that was, Ronald Reagan was in the ninth month of his first term as president, 'Endless Love' by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie was blowing up the airwaves, and the Nationals were still the Montreal Expos. Yet, the team's 98 win season last year was no fluke. While the Nats made a big off-season acquisition by trading for Gio Gonzalez, one can really attribute their success to the big contributions by former first round picks Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper. Strasburg, who had required Tommy John surgery in late-August 2010, hurled a dominant 3.16 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 4.10 K/BB over 159.3 innings. His incredible 11.13 K/9 clip also bested any other starting pitcher in the major leagues. The 19-year-old Harper looked like a veteran All-Star in his rookie debut, posting a .270/.340/.477 line with 22 HR and 18 SB, while gloving a 1.4 dWAR. I ...

Gio Gonzalez spun six scoreless innings and smacked a solo home run in the fifth, as the Washington Nationals blanked the Miami Marlins for the second consecutive game with a 3-0 decision on Wednesday at Nationals Park. Gonzalez (1-0) fanned five and allowed just two hits and two walks, while Ryan Mattheus and Drew Storen each tossed a scoreless frame in relief before Rafael Soriano closed the door in the ninth to secure his second save of the season. Denard Span and Ryan Zimmerman each added an RBI for the defending NL East champion Nationals, who have won their first two games for the second straight season. Kevin Slowey's (0-1) only misstep came on Gonzalez's home run, as the Miami right-hander gave up just four hits and three walks over 5 1/3 frames for the Marlins, who remain in search of their first run of the season after being shut out by the Nats, 2-0, in Monday's season opener.

Stunning Comeback
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
The St. Louis Cardinals use all 27 outs. Like the Texas Rangers before them, the Washington Nationals had to learn the hard way. Picking up right where they left off in Game 4, the Nationals opened Game 5 of their NLDS against the defending World Series champs with three runs in the first inning. By the end of the third, the Nats had chased Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright and grabbed a 6-0 lead. With homers by Ryan Zimmerman, Bryce Harper and Mike Morse already in the books, it looked like Davey Johnson's club would cruise into the NLCS. Not so fast. "We knew there was a lot of game left and we just wanted to chip and be able to get one here and two there. And we put ourselves within striking distance and we gave ourselves a chance," Daniel Descalso told Ken Rosenthal of MLB Network on the field after the game. "And that's all you can really do when you get down early. You can't hit a six-run homer but you can chip away and that's exactly what we did tonight." ...

The first postseason game in 79 years for a team based in the city of Washington turned out to be well worth the wait. Pinch-hitter Tyler Moore delivered a two-out, two-run single in the top of the eighth inning as the Washington Nationals opened up their National League Division Series against the defending world champion St. Louis Cardinals with a 3-2 come-from-behind win Sunday at Busch Stadium. Moore's clutch hit came after Nationals reliever Ryan Mattheus (1-0) worked out of a bases-loaded, no- out jam in the bottom of the seventh. Tyler Clipboard and Drew Storen set St. Louis down the rest of the way to nail down the first playoff contest involving a Washington team since the Senators participated in the 1933 World Series, as well as the Nationals' postseason debut since moving from Montreal following the 2004 season.
