The Nats lost 8-1 to the Phillies to wrap-up the 81st home game of the season.

Mark & Al discuss the next chapter of his post trade deadline magic carpet ride. (12:10) …
 
The Nats lost 5-1 on Friday afternoon before Game 2 of their doubleheader against the Phillies was postponed.

The Nats earned their 2nd walkoff win of the month as they edged Atlanta 3-2 in 10 innings. Al & Mark begin with the hero CJ Abrams, who singled in Alex Call to avoid the sweep on Wednesday night.

The Nats beat Miami 5-3 to guarantee a series win while hitting four solo homers and oddly enough not singling.

The Nats lost their 5th straight as they fell 6-2 to visiting Baltimore. Al & Tim start with a birds-eye view of the rivalry (or lack thereof) between the two neighboring teams.

The Nats lost 5-3 in Philadelphia for their 90th loss overall and the 18th suffered loss by Patrick Corbin this season.

The Nats lost 4-1 in St. Louis ending their bid for a 4th straight win. Mark (Live from Bush Stadium) & Al discuss the return of Nelson Cruz and the chain effect that it has on the lineup.

He seemingly has looked more comfortable at the pl…
 
The Nats beat the Mets again 7-1 in the series rubber match. Al & Mark (Live from Citi Field) marvel at how the team has won five of their past seven games and were able to take a series against a 1st place club in a tight divisional race.

The Nats poured it on in the 9th inning for a 7-1 victory at the Mets; their fourth win in the past six games.

The Nats topped Oakland 7-5 in extras for their first walk-off win of the season as "Joey Four Bags" crushed a 3 run shot in the bottom of the 10th.

The Nats lost 10-6 to Oakland, but that was not the major news of the day.

The Nats beat the Reds 3-2 to avoid the sweep on Sunday afternoon in D.C.

Corbin lasted six innings before handing it off to the "A" Bullpen. (16:30)…
 
The Nats lost 6-2 to the Reds on Saturday night in D.C. Al hosts solo and runs through just how poor the offense continues to be this season. One of the bright spots this past month?

The Nationals lost 7-3 to Cincinnati in Cade Cavalli's debut. Al & Mark recap the prized pitching prospect's first start that saw him allow seven runs under five frames.

Mark (Live from T-Mobile Park) & Al discuss how Robbie Ray had a no-hitter going until "Joey Four Bags" homered to dead center-field in the top of the 7th.

The Padres are a surprising 6-9 since all their big acquisitions a…
 
The Nats lost the series rubber match to the Cubs 3-2 on Wednesday afternoon.

(06:10) Cory Abbott pitched well as he only allowed two runs in six innings. …
 
The Nats came up short yet again in extra innings; the latest a 7-5 loss against the Cubs. Al & Mark wonder how is it that the Nationals constantly struggle in that late stretch, as they are 3-18 in the past two seasons in extra innings. (05:48) CJ Abrams hit 7th again and earned his first hit in Washington in clutch fashion after singling in the t…
 
The Nats had arguably their most exciting victory of the season as they rallied on the Cubs for a 5-4 win. Mark & Al recap the Nationals debut for shortstop CJ Abrams. He was hit-less with a routine E6, but did show-off many signs in the field of his range and ability. Abrams is top rated prospect in the organization and was part of the Juan Soto t…
 
The Nats were blanked in the series rubber match against the Padres 6-0. Mark & Al bring you up to speed on Sunday's lineup as the lead-off hitter was definitely someone you never have heard of before.

The Nats rallied to beat the Padres 4-3 in dramatic fashion. Al & Mark open with a rare moment of 2022 good luck as a Victor Robles 7th inning single turned into the game winning run after San Diego's catcher Austin Nola was determined to have blocked home plate. If you can explain how this rule is supposed to be properly applied, you are smarter t…
 
The Nats were doubled up 10-5 by San Diego in Juan Soto's abrupt return to D.C. Mark & Al examine the events around Soto playing on South Capitol Street in an opposing uniform.

The Nats coughed up a late lead in Chicago and lost 4-2 . Mark & Al again begin with the exploits of "Joey Four Bags" Menses as he homered in every game in this series and has four dingers in seven games.
