Nationals News: After Six Down, One Up Feels Great

  Yesterday's game wasn't a particularly pretty win, but after losing six straight the Nats will take anything they can get.

  Mike Rizzo called up Joel Peralta from Syracuse to replace John Lannan on the major league roster. Peralta has 20 saves this year, with a 1.08 ERA in 28 appearances.

  Jeff Bergin wonders who will replace John Lannan in the rotation (his guess: Craig Stammen).

  Although he's batting an anemic .250 at the plate, Jim Riggleman is sticking with Nyjer Morgan in center because he's been showing some defensive resurgence lately.

  Clip & Save returned last night, just in time for tonight's "Clip & Save" t-shirt Tuesday giveaway.

  Ross Detwiler was taken off the 60-day DL and was sent to AA Harrisburg. Rizzo wants to see more arm strength before he gets called up to the bigs again.

  Was John Lannan unfairly demoted to AA Harrisburg? Do any of the Nationals' other starters give the team a better chance to win every fifth day?

  Garrett Mock was moved to the 60-day DL from the 15-day DL.

  After last week, the Nationals' playoff chances are down to 5.4%. Back to reality, folks.

  Here is Stephen Strasburg's (likely) upcoming schedule.
