Bryce Harper homered and singled, Dan Haren had his best start of the young season Saturday and the Washington Nationals beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-3.
Bryce Harper by far made the most noise on Bark in the Park day. He launched two long home runs, including a tiebreaking drive in the eighth inning, and also doubled Saturday to lead the Washington Nationals over the New York Mets 7-6.
The D.C. Council has honored Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and manager Davey Johnson with ceremonial resolutions.
Right-hander Jordan Zimmermann worked around eight hits over six innings, Ryan Zimmerman’s three hits included a two-run double, and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 Thursday for a season-opening three-game sweep.
With 161 games still to play, the Washington Nationals have already written one game into the ‘win column’ and another page in the Stephen Strasburg mystery novel, leaving everyone to wonder when the training wheels will finally come off.
The Nats began their first season as one of baseball’s hunted today on a breezy afternoon on South Capitol Street. The defending National League East champions didn’t disappoint, riding the XX pitching of presumed ace Stephen Strasburg and homers in his first two at-bats by reigning Rookie of the Year Bryce Harper to a 2-0 victory over the Miami Marlins in just 2:10.
For Bryce Harper, two homers in his first two at-bats, and even some “M-V-P!” chants. For Stephen Strasburg, 19 consecutive outs during one stretch of seven scoreless innings.
Maybe there’s something appropriate about the timing of it all: What’s expected to be the first full season together for Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper is supposed to be the final season for their manager, Davey Johnson.
Giancarlo Stanton homered twice, including a drive high off the hitters’ background screen in center field, to help the Miami Marlins defeat the Washington Nationals 8-5 Tuesday.
The teenagers of the past century who had debuts comparable to Bryce Harper’s were Ty Cobb, Mel Ott, Al Kaline, Ken Griffey Jr., and Tony Conigliaro, whose career was ruined when he was beaned during his fourth season.
