    Mason Thompson showed Washington Nationals he could be really good in the bullpen…

    Acquired by the Washington Nationals (along with infielder Jordy Barley) in a July 30th deal with San Diego that sent veteran reliever Daniel Hudson to the Padres, rookie righty Mason Thompson made a strong impression pitching out of the Nats’ bullpen over the last couple months of the 2021 campaign, even if the results weren’t always what he and the club hoped they would be.

    Washington Nationals' Carter Kieboom needs to show Nats he's the answer at third base...

    I’ve been trying to get ready to hit for the last year and a half and I think I’m finally ready to hit,” Kieboom said early in that stretch. One at-bat against the Cubs, he said, changed things for him and it clicked. I felt something kind of different, and then from there, just taking that same feel to every single at-bat now and I think that’s been the biggest difference.

    No. 5 UCLA at Washington canceled due to COVID-19 issues

    The game won’t be rescheduled and it will count as a Pac-12 victory for the Bruins. That’s because of the league’s rule for games impacted by COVID-19, which says that if two schools can’t agree on a date to reschedule, then the team dealing with the coronavirus outbreak will forfeit the game. Although the teams' conference records will reflect the forfeit, it won't be included by the NCAA in their overall records.
