Losing Adam Eaton could slow Nats' roll

Adam Eaton has been the catalyst for the Nationals' monster offense, and the center fielder's ugly ankle injury hurt much more than Friday's loss.

Nats skipper Dusty Baker on Adam Eaton's leg injury.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Twice was nice for Ryan Zimmerman on Friday vs. the Mets. The Nationals 1B recorded the 17th multi-homer game of his career with long balls in the second and eighth innings.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Nationals lost more than a game. In the 9th inning of their 7-5 loss to the Mets, center fielder and leadoff man Adam Eaton had to be carried off the field after appearing to roll his ankle at first base on infield single. Acquired from the White Sox in a December blockbuster trade, Eaton (.291 avg, .392 obp) has been a major spark for the first-place Nats.

Nats' Eaton injures leg running out grounder

Nationals center fielder Adam Eaton was injured legging out a ground ball and had to be carried off the field in the bottom of the ninth of a loss to the Mets on Friday.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Adam Eaton just got carried off the field at suddenly silent Nats Park. He reached on an infield single to load the bases in the top of the 9th against the Mets, but appeared to roll his left ankle on a bang-bang play.

Travis D'Arnaud has the Cy Young cheat code. The Mets catcher just blasted his second bomb of the night off Nats ace Max Scherzer. D'Arnaud 5, Washington 3, top 4th.

Harper puts cherry on top with 3-run homer (0:26)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Imagine if Bryce Harper got to play all his home games at Coors Field. He homered -- minus batting gloves -- as part of an 11-run seventh inning and has gone 7-for-13 with three walks in the series. The Nats lost the series opener when Harper didn't start, but have now scored 42 runs the past three days. With two innings still to go in this one.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

With 15 runs on the board today at Colorado, and counting, the Washington Nationals now have scored 14 or more four times already this season. The other 29 teams have combined for six.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Corey Seager's solo shot off Johnny Cueto takes the crown for Wednesday's longest home run. Scott Schebler's 442-foot blast was part of a two-homer day, giving him 7 for the year, good for third in the NL. Ryan Schimpf rounds out the list with his clutch long ball against the Diamondbacks.

Nats' Turner flirts with second straight cycle

Trea Turner nearly hit for the cycle for a second straight night, finishing a triple shy, and Bryce Harper had four more hits to run his average to .432, as the Nationals beat the Rockies 11-4.

ESPN Stats and Information  

On Tuesday, Nationals SS Trea Turner became the eighth player in MLB history to drive in seven or more runs in a game while hitting for the cycle. Since 1995, players have hit for the cycle at Coors Field -- the site of Turner's feat -- more than twice as often as they have at any other ballpark.
