RAMOS EXTENDS STREAK, HARPER HOMERS, BUT WASHINGTON FALLS
Washington dropped the first game of this weekend set, 6-2, last night...Wilson Ra-mos (1-for-4) extended his hitting streak to 14 games, while Bryce Harper clubbed his first home run since April 9 vs. MIA, a solo shot in the 7th inning off Burnett...Denard Span (2-for-4, SB) posted his team-best 30th multi-hit game
RAMOS’ STREAK
Wilson Ramos has hit safely in a career-high 14 straight games, going 20-for-53 (.377) with 4 doubles, 2 homers and 6 RBI...Ramos’ 14-gamer is currently the longest hit streak in MLB and the longest posted by a National this season.
THAT MAKES A BAKER’S DOZEN FOR US
With Ian Desmond’s throwing error in the bottom of the 4th inn. Thursday night in Baltimore, Washington snapped a streak of 13 straight errorless games dating to June 25...it was the longest string of errorless baseball recorded in MLB this season.• This 13-game run of defensive perfection matched the longest string of error-less contests recorded by the Nationals since landing in DC in 2005...in 2011, from June 2-15, Washington also played 13 consecutive games without an error.
BETTER LEATHER
The Nationals have made just 4 errors in 32 games dating to June 7...during the month of June, 3 errors yielded just 2 unearned runs to set a new club mark for few-est unearned runs allowed in a calendar month...as the season has progressed, the Nationals’ fielding percentage has risen while their error totals and unearned runs allowed have declined:
 MONTH FIELDING% ERRORS UNEARNED RUNS
 Mar./Apr. (28 games) .................... .975 26 19 May (26 games) ............................. .980 20 13 June (28 games) ............................ .994 8 2 July (9 games) ................................997 1 1
STEAKS AND TATERS
Through 91 games, a look at where Ian Desmond ranks among MLB shortstops in RBI and home runs:
 PLAYER RBI HOME RUNS
Ian Desmond (WSH) ....................... 55 16 Troy Tulowitzki (COL) ..................... 52 21 Starlin Castro (CHI) .......................... 51 11
LONG LINEUP
Both Ian Desmond and Wilson Ramos homered on Wed. at BAL while hitting 7th and 8th, respectively...per the Elias Sports Bureau, the Nationals lead the NL with 24 combined home runs from the bottom third (7th, 8th, 9th hitters) of the lineup.
KEEPING SCORE ON THE SEASON
The Nationals lead the NL (4th in MLB) in run differential at +52 (372 for, 320 against)...MLB’s top 5: OAK (+146), LAA (+83), SEA (+56), Washington (+52), DET (+49).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 40-3 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 9-39 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
NATIONALS STAFF EARNS GOLD OR SILVER IN MANY STATISTICAL CATEGORIES
Washington’s 3.11 staff ERA is 2nd in MLB (OAK is first at 3.08)...Nationals pitch-ers also rank among MLB’s top 2 in these categories: fielding-independent pitching (first, 3.19), fewest earned runs allowed (first, 285), walks/9.0 inn. (first, 2.42), few-est walks (first, 222), SO/BB ratio (first, 3.28/1), homers allowed (T2nd, 61), homers allowed/9.0 inn. (T2nd, 0.66), fewest blown saves (2nd, 6).
THE ‘PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN ...
At 2.70 (82 ER/273.2 IP), Washington relievers rank 3rd in MLB in bullpen ERA behind only the Mariners (first, 2.38) and Padres (2nd, 2.54).
 
STOP THIEF!
Nationals catchers, with a little help from Steve McCatty’s pitching staff, currently rank 2nd in MLB having gunned down 19 of 47 (40.4%) would-be basestealers this year (pitcher caught stealings excluded)...in all of MLB, only the Cardinals (42.9%, 18 of 42) have posted a higher percentage this season than Washington...in ‘13, the Nationals ranked 29th throwing out 14 percent (15 of 110) of would-be basestealers.
DINGERS FROM THE DIAMOND DIRT
The 52 home runs hit by Washington infielders (14 from 1B, 8 from 2B, 13 from 3B, 17 from SS) this season rank 2nd in MLB behind only the Blue Jays (56) infield.
POP FROM THE TOP
Denard Span (28 doubles, 5 triples, home run) currently leads all big league leadoff hitters with 34 extra-base hits...COL’s Charlie Blackmon (32) ranks 2nd.Span’s 28 doubles currently rank T3rd in the NL/T4th in MLB...his next 2-bagger would match Nick Johnson’s 2006 record for most doubles (29) posted by a member of the Nationals prior to the All-Star break.
FUTURE STARS
Michael Taylor (OF, Double-A Harrisburg) and Lucas Giolito (RHP, Single-A Hager-stown) will represent the Washington Nationals in the 2014 Sirius-XM All-Star Fu-tures Game Sunday at Target Field in Minneapolis.

STRASBURG, Stephen (RHP) #37
Makes
final start of first “half” as 3-gamer continues at CBP.
• AGAINST THE PHILLIES:
 Washington is 6-2 when start-ing against PHI...earlier this year, on May 1 at CBP, was touched for a 3-run first-inning HR by Marlon Byrd, which resulted in 3 unearned runs, but blanked Phillies thereaf-ter and didn’t get a decision in the Nationals’ 5-3 come-back win...walked one, fanned 5, allowed only those 3 unearned runs in 6.0 innings...went 2-0 with a 0.39 ERA in 3 starts against the Phillies last season (29 SO in 23.0 inn.).
• LAST START:
 Did not get a decision, despite strong start, in Mon.’s 8-2 setback in 11 inn. vs. BAL...in 7.0 inn., allowed just 2 runs on 4 hits, including Nelson Cruz’s 2-run HR in the 4th...walked none, fanned 9, threw 104 pitches...BAL hit 3 homers in a 6-run 11th to take the series opener.• .344 BABIP ranks 89th out of 93 qualified MLB pitchers and is 45 “points” higher than NL average. • Ranks among NL leaders in strikeouts (first, 140), strike-outs/9.0 (2nd, 10.56), K/BB ratio (2nd, 5.38/1), FIP (3rd, 2.74) and innings (14th, 119.1).Posted career-high 11 consecutive quality starts en route to a 2.22 ERA from Apr. 20-June 14. When starting, Washington is 53-41 (.564)...for career, when getting 3+ runs of offensive support, Washington is 38-4.
