Washington Nationals Game 126 Review: Hairston’s three-run homer helps salvage Nats’ win over Cubs

In nine innings of baseball Wednesday night, the Washington Nationals seemed to summarize the highs and lows of the entire 2013 season thus far in an 11-6 win over the Chicago Cubs that nearly didn’t happen.

Washington cruised into the fifth inning with a five-run lead over a team that could muster only a solo home run by Anthony Rizzo in the bottom of the first until that point.

In the top of the second, Washington had quickly erased Rizzo’s solo shot. Kurt Suzuki batted in Ian Desmond and Adam LaRoche with a sharper grounder that deflected off Rizzo’s hand at first. Then, starter Ross Ohlendorf added an RBI sacrifice bunt to make it 3-1 Nationals by the end of the second.

In the third, Jayson Werth, who continues to ride an astonishing hot streak, contributed a three-run shot to put Washington on top 6-1. [Read more…]

Washington Nationals Game 125 Review: Another strong outing by Haren leads Nats past Cubs

Dan Haren allowed on run over six innings to lead the Washington Nationals to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs Tuesday night at Wrigley Field.

An unlikely hero in the month of August, Haren (W, 8-11) improved his record for the month to 3-0 with a 1.04 ERA in four starts. The turnaround has brought his season ERA down to 4.64 with an 8-11 record.

The Nats were on the board early against starter Chris Rusin (L, 2-3) after Bryce Harper led off the first with a single and came home on a double by Ryan Zimmerman. In the bottom of the inning, Junior Lake reached base on a fielding error by Ian Desmond, but Haren retired the next three batters to quickly end the inning.

Washington threatened in the second after Tyler Moore singled and Anthony Rendon doubled, but Scott Hairston, Haren and Harper went down in order to hold the Nats lead to just 1-0.

The Cubs finally responded in the fourth before Washington could tack on another run. On a 2-2 count with two outs, Brian Bogusevic homered to right center to tie the game. [Read more…]
