Next week, the Washington Nationals will begin a playoff series for the fourth time in six years. They have yet to win a series. With a healthy Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg—plus Max Scherzer, Daniel Murphy, and others—this year could be different. I wrote about it in my final regular season column for CBS Local. Starting next Thursday, I’ll be recapping the playoffs with a “Five Things You Missed” column.
Weather permitting, the regular season wraps up this weekend, and the race for the second wild card spot in the American League is going down to the wire. I recap the playoff picture, the Harper-Papelbon scuffle, and more in my latest for CBS Local.
From the silly to the important, I’ve got the latest in MLB news covered, which includes a phenom reaching another major milestone and a record-setting extra-inning game. Read all about it in my latest Five Things column for CBS Local.
I’m posting this a bit later than usual, but if you haven’t seen Kevin Kiermaier’s catch yet, it’s worth the wait. While home runs are robbed several times a week—though rarely so spectacularly—you don’t see a no-hitter, a triple play, or a straight steal of home very often. Last week featured all three. Read about them in my latest MLB recap for CBS Local.
Alex Rodriguez passes Willie Mays. Bryce Harper hits three home runs in one game. Two American Leaguers go yard in their first game. All of that, plus the surprising start for the Astros, in my latest MLB recap for CBS Local.
