trea turner has made the play hundreds of times. he is not a textbook fundamental shortstop, but he has plenty of range and handles the basics. dj lemahieu’s sixth-inning groundball friday night in nationals park was basic and well within his range.but as he cut off that groundball up the middle and dropped his glove to scoop it off the dirt, he missed. the ball bounced off his glove and away. lemahieu stood safely on first base. a single and a sacrifice fly later, lemahieu scored the go-ahead run in a game the nationals would never tie. they lost to the colorado rockies, 2-1. the last time this team was two games under .500 was may 5, 2015.“i say it every day, 27 outs,” nationals manager dave martinez said. “that’s what it comes down to. i really believe you give good teams 28, ...

denver — a quiet fell over coors field as the washington nationals punctuated a statement of a road trip with the highest scoring inning in team history thursday afternoon. day games in denver are not usually loud, but they are usually louder than this. the normal afternoon murmur fell into a helpless hush, interrupted only by the repeated crack of nationals bats that seemed determined not to let the rockies and their fans escape the misery. the nationals, who entered the day with the best ops in baseball, simply would not stop, not for either of the rockies pitchers who threw that inning, not until the game was safely theirs, 16-5.such is the state of the nationals, silencing all those who would stand up to their offensive might, brushing away their flaws with an unrelenting offensive a..
