The Nationals were in the middle of a four game series with the Dodgers which the Dodgers were leading two games to one. Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler was scheduled to pitch the cancelled game and will now have his turn skipped in the Nationals rotation.

Unless the Dodgers go on a tear and make the playoff race interesting, this game can probably be marked off the calendar as a cancellation.


Dodgers Vs. Nationals Final Score: Washington Falls, 7-4, In Game One Of Doubleheader

The Washington Nationals' bats were alive at one point in their game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first game of a doubleheader on Thursday, but it was for just one inning. The Nationals scored four runs in the bottom of the third inning, but couldn't get anything going the rest of the game and fell, 7-4.

The Nationals had five hits in the entire game. All five of those hits came in the bottom of the third inning, when they got doubles from Michael Morse and Ryan Zimmerman and a home run from Jayson Werth to tie the score at four. Otherwise, though, they didn't get a base hit the entire game.

The game remained tied going into the ninth inning before Los Angeles erupted for three runs off Drew Storen. Tony Gwynn doubled in two runs, and Dee Gordon singled home another.

Mike MacDougal picked up the win for the Dodgers, while Drew Storen was tagged with the loss.


Dodgers Vs. Nationals Score: Nationals Rally Back To Tie Game 4-4 Against Dodgers

For awhile it looked like Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Chad Billingsley had Thursday's game against the Washington Nationals in the bag. He completely baffled the Nats for the first two innings and his offense was able to tag Nationals starter Chien-Ming Wang for four runs early. However, Billingsley melted down in the third inning and the Nationals were able to rally back.

It started with the first hit of the game for the Nationals in the third inning. Shortstop Ian Desmond led off the inning with a lead off single. It was followed by an impressive, lengthy at-bat from second baseman Steve Lombardozzi who battled Billingsley for 12 pitches, eight of them foul offs before finally grounding out. Perhaps the at-bat tired Billingsley out because during the next at bat, third baseman Ryan Zimmerman doubled to score Desmond. Zimmerman then scored on a RBI double from left fielder Michael Morse to make it 2-0. To put the comeback on track, centerfielder Jayson Werth then hit his 19th home run of the season, a two-run shot to tie the game 4-4.

The next batter, right fielder Rick Ankiel also hit a double that chased Billingsley from the game.

It is all tied up at Nationals Park going into the fourth inning.
