Instant analysis: Nats 5, Rockies 4

Associated Press
Ross Detwiler allowed three runs over five innings in his return from the DL.
Game in a nutshell: In the rubber game of the first series of a long road trip, the Nationals found themselves needing to rally from behind to beat a tough Rockies club. Ryan Zimmerman gave them an early 2-1 lead on his 10th homer of the season, but Colorado came right back to take a 3-2 lead off the just-reinstated Ross Detwiler. Still trailing in the seventh, the Nationals "rallied" to tie the game thanks to back-to-back balks called on reliever Wilton Lopez (who was subsequently ejected). They then took the lead in more conventional fashion, getting back-to-back doubles from Roger Bernadina and Zimmerman, then an RBI single from the red-hot Ian Desmond (who went 4-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 15 games). Solid relief work from Craig Stammen, Xavier Cedeno and Drew Storen bridged the gap to Rafael Soriano, who did allow one run to score in the ninth before sealing his 17th save. Thus the Nationals head to Cleveland with a series victory, a winning record (33-32) and a deficit in the NL East that has now been trimmed to 5 1/2 games.

Hitting highlight: Obviously, Zimmerman's two-run homer and RBI double played crucial roles in today's win, but let's not ignore another stellar offensive performance from Desmond, who is on a sustained tear at the plate right now. With a 4-for-4 showing this afternoon, he extended his hitting streak to 15 games, a stretch during which he's batting .404. Overall, Desmond is now hitting .293 with a .483 slugging percentage that ranks third among all MLB shortstops (behind only Troy Tulowitzki and Jean Segura). Throw in the fact he hasn't been charged with an error in 46 games, and Desmond is starting to make a strong case for his second All-Star selection (and first actual game appearance).

Pitching highlight: In his first start in nearly a month, Detwiler (not surprisingly) looked a bit rusty. The Rockies jumped on him for a quick run in the first inning, then added two more in the fourth. Detwiler did find the strike zone with some consistency (51 of 77 pitches overall) and under normal circumstances would have been good to go deeper into the game. But given the fact he just returned from the DL and made only one rehab start in the minors, manager Davey Johnson didn't want to push the left-hander too much and thus ended his afternoon after only five innings.

Key stat: Since Wilson Ramos went back on the DL May 16, Kurt Suzuki is hitting .192 with a .234 on-base percentage and a .219 slugging percentage.

Up next: The road trip continues with a weekend series in Cleveland. Gio Gonzalez faces Justin Masterson in Friday's 7:05 p.m. opener at Progressive Field.

Two series in a row. Keep 'em comin' boys.

GOSM - I was just saying how I know DJ is glad to have some lefties in the BP so he can go along with situational defense...

It was hard before with just Z Duke....

DJ managed this one well...

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Now win the series in Cleveland.

4 of 5 now.

Not bad. Let's keep at it.

7 runners left on base today by Suzuki. Werth is scuffling also and LaRoche is no longer going oppo on those outside pitches.

Luckily enough of the others were hitting today.

NatsLady said...

Hmmmmm... Pirates down two starting pitchers (Wandy and now A.J. Burnett). Nothing is easy.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Also want to thank Balking Bob for doing what he does best!

terpman33 said...

That's how it should be done. A spark becomes a flame, a flame becomes a fire, and that fire turns into a raging inferno. Before we know it, the Nats will have a 10 game winning streak(maybe), and we'll all wonder what we were worried about. Lets show the AL what winning baseball is all about. GYFNG, BABY!!!

Eric said...

Burnett is down? That's gonna leave a mark...or unearth an Ohlendorf... ;)

Today we came back not once but twice. Nice!

David Proctor said...

There were some on here who said we would be swept by both the Twins and Rockies and be 10 games under .500. Well we've 2/3 against both. Just keep winning 2/3 and all will be well.

NatsLady said...

This game feels like last year in Toronto where one pitcher after another got hurt.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

I still hope we go at least 6-3 on this series... Although I hope we sweep Cleveland and win the series against the Philth.... But I will take it 1 game at a time....

Good going Nats! 2 series in a row...

MrsB loves the Nats said...

You for real David P? Interesting....

David Proctor said...

"7 runners left on base today by Suzuki. Werth is scuffling also and LaRoche is no longer going oppo on those outside pitches. "

Werth had an off series, but he was scorching hot against the Twins. We'll see how he does against Cleveland.

Yep, I love me some double barrel going in the bullpen. That was so nice!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

I love how the offense came from behind and picked up Jayson from that error.

Hope Bernadina is ok because I think Werth needs a day off sooner than later as does Span, LaRoche and Suzuki.

Joe Seamhead said...

Exciting game. Atlanta isn't shaking in their boots yet, but they will be soon. We're just getting healthy Get Harper and Stras back, get Zimmerman to quit lolly gagging, make sure Davey takes his Alzheimer's meds, etc. and we'll be okay.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Jason needs to come out the clean up spot... He is looking at too many Ks....

I know, though, that this will happen when Harper comes back...

NatsLady said...

They are slowing learning to cope without Bryce. If he comes back healthy it will be a huge boost.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Here's what I like, Davey has 21 of his A team guys right now and he will get 3 back sooner or later from injury.

With a good bullpen, Davey can actually manage like last year.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Tulo strained Lat on shark slide then aggrivated it on Ian's 4th hit.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Harp I think will be back by home Rockies series or the next one.

David Proctor said...

Brian McNally ‏@bmcnally14 46s
You start a struggling Dan Haren and Ross Ohlendorf at Coors Field and grab 2 wins - it's been a good series. #Nats showing some life maybe?

Great point.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

I couldn't be a reporter, although I would love to be one... I'd be too distracted in the locker room(s) and pissed off if my team loses... I'd be asking al the wrong questions....

David Proctor said...

We have Gio, JZimm and Stras going in Cleveland. No reason to not win 2/3.

DaveBinMD said...

With Ramos having re-aggravated the Hamstring yet again, and Kurt ice cold at the plate, how about a few more starts for 'Onion'? I know his bat had been cold all season too, but he's hit in the past and he stroked a double yesterday, so maybe he'll heat-up with more starts.

NatsLady said...

Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 20m
Tulo MRI on ribs. Hurt diving. No word on MRI. Fowler day to day. CarGo day to day Weiss said Tulo's ribs been hurting for a week

Boy, if that's how Tulo plays when he's hurt...!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Thinking the same thing NatsLady on Tulo. He's having a MVP worthy year in a premium position.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Getting ready to watch the Espinosa 3 inning show in Syracuse. 1st pitch around 7:20 due to weather.

Eric said...

"get Zimmerman to quit lolly gagging, make sure Davey takes his Alzheimer's meds, etc. and we'll be okay."

Ha!!

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

I wish Tulo's college teammate could hit likr him.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Zim off my radar no lollygagging today. Hustled every at bat.

We made up.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Or more

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

They are freaking out in Atlanta about their teams poor pitching and a team slumping with the bat and they are healthy everywhere but the bullpen.

Rendon getting a lot of love on MLB Radio as well as Desi.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

This would be my lineup

Span
Rendon
Harper
Zim
LaRoche
Desmond
Werth
Catcher
Pitcher

Eric said...

"Getting ready to watch the Espinosa 3 inning show in Syracuse. 1st pitch around 7:20 due to weather."

Very curious to hear how this goes...

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Eric keep us informed

baseballswami said...

NatsJack- much more interested in Tyler. What's up with him?

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

MNF, that looks real good. I'm more concerned on getting these guys some rest.

Eric said...

"Eric keep us informed"

I would, but I was just quoting NatsJack.

NatsLady said...

I've liked Tulo ever since he took Clip with him to the All-Star game on his private plane. (Plus it's fun to watch him play.)

alexva said...

Manassas, ultimately yes but let Rendon get a little more settled in. after the break go for it

baseballswami said...

And I also think perhaps Solano should catch a few more games. Maybe not Sunday.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Saw Tylers first game the other nite. 0-4 and was the only Chief to sttike out but only once.

baseballswami said...

I hope he gets his confidence back soon. Where is he playing on the field and hitting on the line up?

NatsLady said...

Tornado in Rockville, there is video on Twitter. Don't know if there was damage. Stay safe, everyone.

baseballswami said...

Where I Iive we had zero rain! I mean nothing this morning or in the afternoon. So bizarre!

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Cubs just had the 14th inning stretch.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Be careful out there. Since when does the DC area get tornados.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Batting second and playing 2b, #16, Danny Espinosa.

Tyler Moore is batting 4th and playing left field.

Danny Rosenbaum is pitching.

Eric said...

"Since when does the DC area get tornados."

We get little ones here pretty regularly, but usually on the east side of the city. MoCo is pretty rare (although I was a few hundred yards from one back in '01 in the same area that got hit today).

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Eric, aren't those micro bursts or hurricanes not twisters?

The Orioles are playing in Baltimore. The place is empty and with the piped in sound you'd swear they had 50,000.

c715e5d6-9d22-11e1-a89a-000f20980440 said...

Looking ahead to tomorrow (and Saturday). We will be at the game, seats behind the visitor's dugout. 3 women, 1 guy, all wearing Nats gear. Hopefully cheering victories.

ArVAFan

NatsJack in Florida said...

Rosenbaum strikes out the first 2 guys he faces.

NatsLady said...

Would you go to an O's game with tornado warnings? Not the best company to keep.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Walks the next guy but gets Nick Castellanos (Tigers #1 prospect) to ground out.

Get ready. Danny E is up 2nd.

Less Platu said...

ahaha Better an O's game in a tornado than the trolls that live here on a beautiful sunny day at Nationals Park --

NatsJack in Florida said...

Left handed journeyman pitching for Toledo. Perez leads of with an infield error. Espinosa lines a single to right on a 3-1 pitch.

Eric said...

"Eric, aren't those micro bursts or hurricanes not twisters?"

Yes, 100% positive, although we get those, too.

NatsLady said...

Danny in full beard singles.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Cory Brown then gets hit on top of the helmet to load the bases for #19, Tyler Moore.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Tyler delivers a 3 run double to left.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Look at TyMO!

Less Platu said...

Why follow proven losers? What's all that about? Couldn't care less how Espi hits in the bushes -- TMo ? Who cares

NatsLady said...

The catcher we gave Oakland (Derek Norris) is hitting .197.

Less Platu said...

We'll see TMo again; but we'll never see Espi -- Thank God! The Lying Poser is Gone

Less Platu said...

Give Norris time -- he's going to be a beast

NatsJack in Florida said...

3-0 Chiefs after 1.

Less Platu said...

Gausman is lighting up the board with 97-98 moving fastball --

Eric said...

Per Wikipedia:
"The surrounding states of Virginia and Maryland average 10 and 6 tornadoes per year."

I don't know how many of those are in the metro area, but it seems we get at least one confirmed touch down per year.

There's a strip of forest that was completely uprooted on the north side of the UMD campus during the '01 event. Now it's basically just a swamp.

That was the event where one touched down a few hundred yards from a friend's house while I was there. That was pretty scary, but the derecho last summer was worse.

Less Platu said...

I remember that one very well -- tornado went through one of the high rise dorms near Byrd - picked up a car with two sisters and carried them up and over the building -- both dead

baseballswami said...

How are you watching the game?? Please keep us updated. I see all these guys as numbers 26,26,27,28 etc on the roster. We could need any of them any day. You know of course, that there are people seriously worried about a backup SS. They are all an important part of the Nats-- that much has been proven last year and this year. They can keep us afloat or sink us

Less Platu said...

Danny Valencia goes deep to left -- Orioles 1 Boston 0

baseballswami said...

I feel do badly for those dealing with the storms. I guess we had some kind of bubble over us today.

NatsLady said...

Is Gausman a Nat, an ex-Nat, or a future Nat? Then I don't care unless Rizzo trades for him. If Rizzo trades for him I'll watch the archives.

Eric said...

Wow... I'd forgotten about the sister's who were killed. Sad :(

June 13, 2013 7:42 PM


How many arguments did I have with P***** in 2011 over Norris and his BA vs. OBP. He does take a ton of walks which is why the A's still play him. He may also figure it out one day with the bat.

NatsLady said...

swami, watching on minor league TV. Costs about $40 a year. Handy for times when there is no Nats game or you want to see a prospect (or a guy rehabbing).

Agreed 100% besides the guy isn't that great.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Good on Tyler Moore....

Less Platu said...

Major league leader in doubles (28) Manny Machado, singes to center driving in run #2.

Machado is hitting .360 with RISP

NatsLady said...

He has 23 walks on the year, that's pretty impressive in 170 PAs. (39 Ks).

Less Platu said...

Some here would rather watch the bush leagues (and pay for it too??!!!) rather than watch two excellent big league teams: Red Sox vs. O's. Silly

NatsJack in Florida said...

Syracuse realistically has maybe 4 guys who may help the Nats and 2 of those are Espinosa and Moore and the other 2 are Perez and Brown. Everybody else are organizational fillers.

Rosenbaum may get a look but I doubt it.

Guys like Walters and Rivero have too many holes in their game both offensively and defensively.

Rosenbaum is getting hit around in the 2nd.

NatsLady said...

I AM watching two excellent teams, the Yanks and the A's (on my phone) and Syracuse on my computer.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Also watching the O's game and the Pirates/Giants.

Less Platu said...

Hardest to strike out player in the MLB, Nick Markakis of the Orioles, rips rope to center. First and Second, one out. Adam Jones to follow.

Turn off the losers and watch some real ball players

NatsLady said...

If someone cares that much about the O's-Red Sox game maybe he or she should brave the weather and go to Ballmer...

Less Platu said...

Espi will never play for the Nats ever again. If they ever play Espi and sit Rendon, the Lerners should step in and get some new management. But even Davey and Rizzo aren't that stupid -- no matter how much in manlove they are with the inept Espinosa

Less Platu said...

Major league leading HR leader, Davis up with two on, two out --

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Less - are you the resident O's fan?

NatsLady said...

It's hard for me to call the A's "losers." Y'know, being as how they are leading the AL West.

Less Platu said...

Homerun leader, Davis, singles to center through a drawn in infield to drive in third run of the inning.

Orioles 3 Red Sox 0

Less Platu said...

I'm merely reporting on two excellent teams fighting for a division title -- beats a bushy game from Syracuse

Less Platu said...

The A's are fun to watch in spite of their bogus Moneyball silliness

Danny E coming up with bases loaded.

NatsLady said...

Yanks are fun to watch too, and I have Adam Warren on my fantasy team today, and he's now pitched four scoreless with 2 Ks...

I took a chance and put Rendon on my Fantasy team when Gyorko went on the DL -- it's been good so far!!

Yeah, they concluded that danny can't hit! hahaha

Danny Espinosa strikes out looking with bases loaded.

Um... The Os? OK... Who cares, indeed.

Danny strikes out looking. Looked low to me.

Less Platu said...

watching O's game -- Gausman throwing major gas in the high 90's -- nevertheless, he leaves many fb's dead red , his wheels have got to come off soon

NatsJack in Florida said...

Cory Brown covers Espinosa by doubling in 2 runs and now Tyler is up.

Less Platu said...

Espi K's with bases loaded?? Ah that's my Danny

Less Platu said...

I don't understand why Nats are resistant to bringing Corey B up and sending an ailing Bernie either on the DL or out to Syracuse. Brown is flat out good

Candide said...

Espi strikes out looking.

Gausman k's victorino, Pedroia grounds out 1-3

He just cant hit

NatsJack in Florida said...

Well, I suppose this is how negativity manifests around here when things are going well for the Nats: an Os play by play...

I probably am more interested in anyone's fantasy selections than the o's -- but tonight, its the only game in town

Gonat said...

Less Platu, why don't you go to the Birdland blog. They will appreciate your Bird play by play.

This is a Nats blog and even the people with dual allegiance are good enough not to talk Os here.

Have some respect.

David Proctor said...

WOW that play at the plate robbing the A's of a walk off.

Less Platu said...

Now I see where Espi got the idea for his beard: Pedroia sports a beard similar

NatsLady said...

Coco Crisp (PH) singles, Brandon Moss out at home but the catcher (Stewart) is dazed in the collision. He stays in the game.

Less Platu said...

Maybe Espi will find is level of hitting mastery in Single A

Mickey Vernon said...

I'd watch the O's but their broadcasters are mind numbingly boring and relentless homers -- but I suppose that's what their fan base expect. Right, Less?

sjm308 said...

Sorry to break in on the Orioles coverage here on Nats Insider but we have won two series in a row and did not lose the Mets Series as it ended 1-1.

With the 3 starters scheduled for Cleveland I am thinking we can win our 3rd series in a row and slowly but surely pick up ground on the Braves. Not what I had in mind at the beginning of the year but it is a new and exciting way to look at the year. We can be the little engine that could and slowly but surely move to the top of the mountain so all the good little girls and boys can get their just rewards.

Go Nats!!!

NatsLady said...

Warren, who is on FUMES, strikes out Rosales, and we go to the 16th.

Less Platu said...

Valencia doubles off the outstretched glove of the running and diving Ellsbury. Would have been a helluva catch

Eric said...

"Sorry to break in on the Orioles coverage here on Nats Insider"

As you should be!!!

Less Platu said...

Carp and F.P. aren't shameless Homers??? haha

sjm308 said...

I also try not to watch the O's but the epitome of "homerism" is when the chose the Player Of The Game and it is always an Oriole no matter what the score or situation. What a joke. I do like their lineup however and am glad we don't face them again the rest of the year.

Eric said...

Sheesh now it's dueling coverage... I guess I'll dip. No offense but atbat is way better at this than y'all ;)

Less Platu said...

sjm its not a new way to view the season; its the only way

Less Platu said...

It's called loyal fans, Sjm. Any different from here?

sjm308 said...

By the way, how is Mick's prediction of 10 losses in a row working out?? Oh, not so well I guess. I skip him now but I am guessing he is back rooting for his team now that they are winning.

baseballswami said...

Bernie appeared to hurt his shoulder today. I am interested in any player that wears a uniform of the Nationals organization and I am interested in some former Nats who I was fond of and wish well. I am not interested in the american league team to our north -- I am sure that they have a discussion blog during games. I will link to the gameday - did not know they did it for the minor leagues. I may also invest in the minor league computer games. I love following the kids.

Candide said...

Less Platu said...

In that case, why don't you read Robert Coover's The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop.?

NatsLady said...

Well, I tried to drown out the O's coverage... Gotta leave for a while. Enjoy!

Gonat said...

I just tweeted Mark about this Troll. You ask the guy nicely to stop his play by play and he doesn't care.

sjm308 said...

Platu - it now is the only way, but like others, I really bought into the hype at the beginning of the year about how great we would be and had to do a major expectation adjustment. I have waited 68 years for a World Series in this town and was hoping this would be the year. Have not given up but it was pretty bleak there for a couple weeks.

Rendon, the bullpen additions and a couple of our regulars getting on track have slowly but surely made me think we still have a chance.

Again, Go Nats! Win 2 of 3 from the tribe

sjm308 said...

Swami or Natsjack - I get the audio mlb gameday for some ridiculously cheap price per month. Are you guys saying I can also find minor league games? If so, how?

baseballswami said...

Do tell - I am interested also. I love minor league baseball.

Gonat said...

Espinosa is batting .500 in the Minors. Bring him back. He does have a high K rate which is also .500.

Eric said...

sjm - Maybe start at milb.com?

baseballswami said...

Tyler is batting 1000 with 4 rbi's -- call him back!

NatsJack in Florida said...

39.99 for the entire season gets you all AAA, AA and most A games. MiLB.com.

baseballswami said...

NatsJack - is the Austin Jackson playing for Toledo the big league Austin Jackson?

NatsJack in Florida said...

Tyler is hitting .200 with 5 rbi on 1 hit and 2 sac flies.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Yes.

Candide said...

sjm, it looks like there isn't any radio broadcast of the minor league games (http://www.milb.com/multimedia/audio.jsp?sid=t552&home=t552&away=t512),
but you can follow Syracuse's play-by-play here: http://www.milb.com/gameday/index.jsp?gid=2013_06_13_tolaaa_syraaa_1&mode=gameday

Kinda like At Bat Lite.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Except now he's the AAA Austin Jackson.

sjm308 said...

As always NatsJack - thanks

We met briefly before a game a year ago. Would love to spend more time the next time you come up. We have beer and music and beer and baseball in common, not to mention beer. I am just a few years older and am jealous of your tatoo even though someone else on here thinks its a sign of .... well, never mind.

Go Nats!!

Candide said...

And it looks like Espi's been taken out of the game - replaced at 2nd by Brian Bocock.

NatsJack in Florida said...

If you get the MiLB package it includes radio feeds as well.

sjm308 said...

They said he would only play 3 innings in his first game. I really do hope they take their time with this. I for one do not need to see him rushed back. They need to send him a message here (in my opinion).

Less Platu said...

Gonad: why go personal? why the insults? People are having fun - play by play on the chiefs, the A's and a little O's. Im a nats fan. I think that's clear.

Yet you're calling me a Troll? Reporting me to Mark? How old are you, 12, 13?

If you're an adult, calm down
If you a teenager: shut up and let the adults talk

Gonat said...

5 people asked you to stop the Os play by play. You just ignored them.

Gonat said...

What are you 5 years old with the Gonad stuff? Whatever. I'll put you on ignore.

Less Platu, knock it off. Are you really trying to fight someone? You're the one who needs to grow up.

Drew said...

Meanwhile, away from the sandbox ...

Taylor Jordan just allowed his first hit in the sixth inning against Richmond. The hit came on a grounder to third. On the radio you could hear the Harrisburg crowd booing the official scorer.

Jordan plunked the first batter of the game, then retired 15 in a row. Jordan's only problem is that he sat awhile between innings. Harrisburg is up 9-0.

Looks like this kid's on the fast track.

Drew- I know you & Natsjack are high on this kid. Do you see him moving up soon?

Drew, that's good to know on Taylor Jordan. It will be interesting how Karns pitches in his next start at Harrisburg.

Ha, I was just about to say wow look at the Yanks/As....

Less Platu - no one here cares about the Sox/Os.... Since you want to talk about them, why don't you go find a fan board of theirs and discuss the game....

I'm glad for Tyler Moore... I always figured he would be the guy to take over for Adam LaRoche....

I have NEVER called someone stupid. Compare that to you calling people fascists, idiots, teenage girls and trying to fight them. You are clearly the troll.

The Internet's always at it's best when someone suggests making confrontations physical.

Seriously though, Proctor, Gonat, thanks for disrupting the terrible Os broadcast ;)

They did and he challenged them all to a throw down. Thought we might be starting a Nationals Insider Fight Club except the challenged showed more maturity then our boy Les. First rule of Fight Club is don't talk about Fight Club.

How about an NI pact- ignore no matter what? Please? No taking bait.

Ryan Perry lowered his ERA under 7.75 He's certainly a candidate to be removed from the 40 man.

I put my seat and section number up when I am at games.

Six innings into his sixth start at Harrisburg, Taylor Jordan has a 0.71 ERA at AA and he's about to go 5-0.

Earlier this year he was 2-1 at Potomac with a 1.24 ERA when he was promoted. Tonight's performance should drop his cumulative ERA below 1.00.

Jordan was a 9th round pick in 2009 out of Brevard CC in Florida. He was 9-4 at Hagerstown when he lost a year to Tommy John surgery.

I would guess they'll have him finish this year at Harrisburg.

His recovery, after those of JZim and Stras, gives me hope that Slingin' Sammy Solis will return to form.
