Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Shohei Ohtani is a pretty big fan of Bryce Harper, who is in town to play the crosstown Dodgers this weekend. Ohtani, through his interpreter: "It's hard to say exactly how much I try to model his swing. But he's a lefty just like me; he's a great hitter with a great approach, so I try to take all the good parts."

Put away those brooms, Nationals fans. In danger of being swept, the Mets had an inning to remember, scoring nine runs in the eighth to turn a 4-2 deficit into an 11-4 lead. Juan Lagares had the go-ahead double with two outs and Yoenis Cespedes capped it off with a grand slam.

Harper breaks bat, muscles out 406-foot HR

Despite breaking his bat on a 95 mph fastball by the Mets' Jacob DeGrom, Nationals star Bryce Harper powered the ball far over the wall in right-center at Citi Field for his eighth homer of the season.


Desmond's 9th-inning homer leads Rockies past Nationals 6-5

Ian Desmond hit a tiebreaking, two-out homer in the ninth inning against his former team, Charlie Blackmon drove in three runs and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Nationals 6-5 on Sunday, ending a dispiriting homestand for Washington.


Gonzalez homers to lead Rockies past Nationals 2-1

Carlos Gonzalez homered and had a sacrifice fly to drive in both of Colorado's runs, leading the Rockies to their third straight victory with a 2-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.

Huge night for DJ LeMahieu. Colorado's second baseman had two homers and two doubles to give him four hits on the night, or as many as the entire Nationals team had. Rockies win 5-1. The Nats, who've managed just 20 runs in their last eight games, are in fourth place in the NL East.

The Nationals have signed slugger Mark Reynolds to a minor-league deal. Besides providing a power bat, Reynolds - who hit .267 with 30 jacks last season for Colorado - gives Washington three former UVA players. First baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who played collegiately with Reynolds in 2003, and closer Sean Doolittle are also ex-Cavaliers.

Source: Reynolds to Nats on minor league deal

The Nationals agreed to a deal with infielder Mark Reynolds on a minor league contract, giving them depth in the infield and another big bat in a lineup that is already potent.

Pretty impressive round of BP for Bryce Harper. In a span of five pitches, he went yard to second deck RC, opposite field, third deck RF, and dead center.
