Generally, ten runs wins a baseball game - just not in Colorado. Dusty Baker is probably pretty happy to be back at sea level.

Here's the latest from Atlanta.

Can the Nats trust Gio Gonzalez come October?
Gio has had a rough season overall, but hasn't looked horrible lately. Could Dusty Baker trust him with a spot in the playoff rotation?

So far, it looks like Bryce Harper is back
After his stint on the bench, Harper is hitting the ball harder and further than he has been all season.

Stephen Strasburg suddenly struggling, but there's not much to worry about
Strasburg's struggles on Wednesday may have looked bad, but there was nothing fundamentally wrong with the righty.

Nationals recall Koda Glover
Glover rejoined the big league club from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, almost a month after his first stint in the majors in late July.

May we all have such strong reactions to players getting hit by pitches
