Last homestand theWashington Nationals welcomed back Dusty Baker from the visitor’s dugout, and today it will be World Series heroes, Trea Turner and Daniel Hudson, who return as visiting players. The Nats have prepared a joint video tribute for Turner and Hudson to play just before first pitch.

This series against the Dodgers is just more of the relentless schedule which hasn’t given the Washington Nationals many chances against against non-contending teams lately. At some point, the Nats will face some struggling teams. Continue reading

The season is almost 25 percent complete at the end of this game for the Washington Nationals. The sample sizes are now large enough for some players to project for the season, but if Juan Soto proved anything last year — he should go on some big hot streaks as the weather warms up.

More Close Games in Thursday’s Recap

It was a rainy day in Portland and the Senators couldn’t get their game in against the Sea Dogs.

The other teams were good to go and they had Jefry Rodriguez (AAA), Jake Irvin (A+), and Rodney Theophile (A) on the mound.

Class-A Fredericksburg “FredNats” Nationals

Rodney Theophile turned in his first rough outing of the season going five innings and yielding four runs on four hits and two walks. His ERA is still at 1.66. The bullpen picked him by not giving up a run for the rest of the game.

Jeremy De La Rosa was the only hitter to tally multiple hits as they only combined for five. Brady House went hitless, but drove two runners in on a day when the FredNats only scored three.

FredNats lose 4-3.

High-A Wilmington Blue Rocks

Jake Irvin came into today with an ERA of 0.95, but today he was human. He still managed to limit the damage to two runs over three innings.

The offense managed five runs on 12 hits led by Darren Baker and Yasel Antuna‘s three hit days.

The BlueClaws scored three unanswered runs from the 6th inning on to take the lead and they didn’t faulter.

Blue Rocks lose a close one 5-4.

Double-A Harrisburg Senators

The Senators game against the Portland Sea Dogs was postponed and will be played on May 20.

Triple-A Rochester Red Wings

There was a ton of offense in today’s game with 19 runs and 29 hits combined, 12 runs coming in the first two innings.

Wings standouts include Luis Garcia who had two hits, Andrew Stevenson and Taylor Gushue who both had three hits, and Joey Meneses who tallied four hits and a home run.

The Wings and IronPigs were tied heading into the bottom of the 9th and Taylor Gushue walked it off with an RBI double. A rewarding way to get win after dropping a few in a row.

Wings out-slug the Pigs, 10-9.

Farm System final notes 🎶

The Nats’ minor league system had another bad night with a few one run losses and some uncharacteristic starting pitcher performances.

Looking to turn it around tomorrow.
