  Bryce Harper will be playing in the JUCO World Series starting on Saturday. He's broken almost every College of Southern Nevada record in his year there.

  The Nats confirmed that they will recall J.D. Martin from Syracuse to start on Saturday against the Padres.

  Of the 48 games so far this season, 27 have been decided by one run, going 16-11, and 17 of their last 22 game have been decided by one or two runs (8-9).

  Craig Stammen earned his first quality start away from Nationals Park yesterday, and was upset when he got pulled for Sean Burnett.

  Mike MacDougal, 2009's closer, was promoted to Syracuse yesterday. He had been released by the Marlins following spring training this year.

  Nationals Baseball holds the Nationals harmless for the June 4th hoopla, but says that the team owes its fans the truth about Strasburg as soon as they're sure.

  Ben Goessling interviews Mike Rizzo about his impression of the season so far.

 Scott Olsen, recovering from a sore shoulder, did not play catch on Thursday due to rainy weather.

  Josh Willingham doesn't seem to care that Julio Lugo kicked dirt on him after his walkoff home run against the Orioles.
