WERTH-Y OF YOUR VOTE
A closer look at Jayson Werth’s candidacy for NL Player of the Month for July, which coincidentally he won last July (.367, 7 home runs, 22 RBI, 17 runs scored, 27 games):

JULY HEAT
The Nationals went 14-10 (.583) in July to post their 2nd consecutive winning month, 3rd of the season (16-12 in Mar./Apr., 17-11 in June).At 14-10, Washington registered its 2nd-best July...in 2012, the Nationals set their July standard via a .654 (17-9) winning percentage.
TOP HEAVY
Winners of 17 of 27, Washington is atop the NL East by 1.5 games at 58-48 (.552) and owns the NL’s 3rd-best winning percentage behind only the Dodgers (62-47, .569) and Brewers (60-49, .550)...in the race for the NL’s top record, 7 clubs are within 4.5 games of the top spot: LAD (—), MIL (-2.0), Washington (-2.5), SFG (-3.5), STL (-4.0) ATL (-4.0) and PIT (-4.5).
PAST DUE
The Nationals are in the midst of their longest homerless stretch, at 8 games, since the club relocated to DC in 2005...twice previously, Washington went 6 games with-out hitting a home run (July 11-20, 2013 and June 1-6, 2010)...the last National to homer: Adam LaRoche, who slugged a game-winning 3-run shot to cap the scoring in Washington’s 7-4 victory at Coors Field on July 22.Fortunately for the Nationals, during this 8-game homerless stretch, their 5 op-ponents (MIL, COL, CIN, MIA, PHI) have combined on just 2 homers, and both those were hit by the Marlins in Washington’s 4-3 victory on Wed. at Marlins Park.
RIVALRIES RENEWED
The Nationals (20-17, .541 against NL East in 2014) are in the midst of a heavy stretch of intradivision contests, as 12 of their next 13 games will come against a cross-sec-tion of NL East rivals (3 more against the Phillies, 3 against the Braves, 6 against the Mets)...the lone exception: a Mon., Aug. 4 one-off against the Orioles (game was rescheduled due to a July 8 washout in DC).39 of Washington’s final 56 games this season will be played against NL East foes.
PATENT THAT LEATHER
Matt Williams’ Nationals have played errorless baseball in 37 of 47 games (78%) dat-ing to June 7...in that 8-week span, the Nationals pace MLB with a .993 fielding percentage...the Mariners (.992) and Orioles (.990) rank 2nd and 3rd, respectively.The Nationals’ error totals by month: Mar./Apr. (26), May (20), June (8), July (10).
KEEPING SCORE ON THE SEASON
The Nationals lead the NL (3rd in MLB) run differential at +66 (442 for, 376 against)...MLB’s top 5: OAK (+162), LAA (+90), Washington (+66), LAD (+60), SEA (+53).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 49-6 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 9-42 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
SERIES BUSINESS
Dating to May 30, Washington is 12-3-2 (win-loss-tie) in series play, and 33-21 (.611) overall...3 of the 12 series wins were sweeps (3-0 vs. PHI, 2-0 vs. HOU, 3-0 vs. COL)...the Nationals’ home-and-home set with BAL is considered one series for this note.
10+ AGAIN
The Nationals have placed at least 10 men on base safely — by definition via hit, walk or HBP — in 21 consecutive games dating to July 5 to establish a Nationals (2005 - pres.) club record...the previous mark was 16 straight games with at least 10 runners reaching safely, June 25-July 11, 2010.
STOP THIEF!
Nationals catchers pace MLB having gunned down 23 of 62 (37.1%) would-be bas-estealers this year (pitcher caught stealings excluded)...the Cardinals (19 of 52, 36.5%) currently rank a close 2nd behind Washington...in ‘13, the Nationals ranked 29th throwing out 14 percent (15 of 110) of would-be basestealers.
ATTENTION SPAN
Denard Span has reached base safely via hit or walk in 26 straight games dating to June 28, going 37-for-101 (.366) with 4 doubles, 4 RBI, 18 walks, 20 runs scored and 7 stolen bases...his 25-game on-base percentage: .461.Span reached base safely in the game’s first inning 14 times in 24 July contests via one double, 8 singles and 5 walks.
