LATE AND NOT-SO GREAT
When the Reds edged the Nationals, 4-3, in 15 innings it was the longest game, in terms of innings, played in these parts (The District) since the visiting Athletics out-lasted the expansion Senators, 5-3, in 21 innings on June 4, 1971 at RFK. • Mon’s game was so long, Jayson Werth was 34 years-old at first pitch, but 35 years-young upon the Reds recording the game’s 90th and final out at 12:04 a.m.
BULLISH ON THE NATIONALS’ ‘PEN
At 2.08 (34 ER/147.1 IP), Washington relievers pace MLB in bullpen ERA...in fact, only the Padres (2nd, 2.18) and Giants (3rd, 2.21) sport sub-2.50 bullpen ERAs. Todd Frazier’s decisive 2-run shot in the 15th inning on Mon. night ended string of 27.1 consecutive scoreless innings from the Nationals bullpen...those 27.1 straight scoreless innings of relief established a new Nationals (2005-pres.) record...Washington’s previous mark: 23.2 innings, Sept. 11-17, 2011.
HOME COOKED MEALS ON THE MENU
The Nationals, at 2-2, are 4 games into a pivotal 19-game stretch through June 5 that includes 15 contests at Nationals Park...in this span, the Nationals will host the Mets (2-1), Reds (0-1), Marlins, Rangers and Phillies for 3-game sets in DC, while making just one roadtrip, a 4-game weekend visit to PNC Park (May 22-25).
POWER FROM THE PIVOT
The Nationals lead MLB in home runs (15) hit by middle infielders (COL ranks 2nd with 14)...the breakdown of the 15 home runs: 8 from shortstops (Ian Desmond 7, Zach Walters 1) and 7 from second basemen (Danny Espinosa 6, Anthony Rendon 1).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 19-1 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 4-20 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
SLOW STARTS, FANTASTIC FINISHERS
While the Nationals have run up a 21-run first-inning deficit (21 for, 42 against) this year, Washington has outscored its opponents, 78-38, from the 7th inning on.The Nationals pace MLB with a +40 run differential after the 6th inning (a.k.a. 7th-inning+)...at +30, the White Sox rank a somewhat distant 2nd to the Nationals.
DC’S COMEBACK KIDS
5 of Washington’s last 7 wins have been of the come-from-behind variety...a closer look at which teams have registered the most comeback wins in 2014:

BEYOND THE TRIUMVERATE
With Doug Fister making his DC debut as a National tonite against the Reds and Gio Gonzalez recently placed on the DL for the first time in his career, note that since the beginning of 2012, the Nationals are 136-78 (.564) in games started by Stephen Strasburg, Gonzalez or Jordan Zimmermann, and 71-83 (.461) in all other contests.
OUCH, THAT STINGS
The Nationals (23-21) have played .523 ball despite Matt Williams’ Opening Day starting 8 (CF Denard Span, 3B Ryan Zimmerman, RF Jayson Werth, C Wilson Ra-mos, LF Bryce Harper, SS Ian Desmond, 1B Adam LaRoche, 2B Anthony Rendon) having endured 5 DL stints and started only 238 of 357 possible games (66.7%).
MEET MATT WILLIAMS
Matt Williams, 48, was named the 5th field manager of the Nationals on Oct. 31, 2013...the managerial position is the first of his career...joins the Nationals organiza-tion after spending the previous 4 seasons on Kirk Gibson’s coaching staff in ARI...Williams hit .268 (1878-for-7000) with 338 2B, 378 HR, 1218 RBI and 997 runs in 1866 games spanning 17 decorated seasons with ARI (‘98-03), CLE (1997) and SFG (‘87-96)...Williams was a 5-time All-Star (‘90, ‘94-96, ‘99) and a 4-time recipient of the Rawlings Gold Glove (‘91, ‘93-94, ‘97) and Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger (‘90, ‘93-94, ‘97) awards...his 359 career homers as a third baseman ranks 5th on the all-time list (Mike Schmidt 509, Eddie Matthews 486, Chipper Jones 389, Graig Nettles 368). • Williams reached the postseason on 6 occasions, won 3 pennants and claimed a World Championship (2001 Diamondbacks)...in all, played in 51 postseason games/18 World Series contests...sports previous managerial experience gained with the Salt River Rafters (AFL division title, ‘12) and the Double-A Mobile Bay-Bears (skippered final 5 weeks of ‘07 after Brett Butler suffered a mild stroke)...Williams’ baseball DNA traces back to his grandfather, outfielder Bert Griffi th, who was a member of the 1924 World Champion AL Nationals...born in Bishop, CA and a native of Carson City, NV, Williams is an alum of UNLV.

 Nationals Park
 Washington, DC
May 20 2008
 - Greg Dobbs’ bloop single with one out in the 9th plated the game’s only run as the Phillies blanked the Nationals, 1-0, at Nationals Park. Jason Bergmann engaged Cole Hamels (11 strikeouts) in a pitcher’s duel and both tossed 7.0 scoreless innings, but went without a decision. Dobbs’ RBI single off Jon Rauch was his MLB-best 10th pinch hit and it ended Washington’s string of 18.0 straight scoreless innings.
