#Nats Homer Early, #Tigers Homer Last For A 7-7 Tie: http://bit.ly/1EBt0z8
The Nats used the longball to score in five straight innings to build a 6-2 lead but the 'pen gave it away with two in the 7th, and solo HRs in the 8th and 9th innings for a 7-7 tie. A.J. Cole stepped in for Stephen Strasburg and shut down Detroit on the first turn through the lineup but was ...

#Nats Ride Four-Run 1st To 7-5 Win: http://bit.ly/1xHGK8Y
Washington scored four times in the 1st and withstood a pair of late rallies by Houston to win, 7-5. Starting pitcher Max Scherzer was dinged for a solo HR but gave up just three hits total in his five innings of work to earn the win. He struck out six and walked none.

.@Marlins Stop @Nationals Spring "Streak," 5-4: http://bit.ly/1AGQ1Q3
Three in a row was too much to hope for as the Marlins rallied for two in the last of 8th to break a 3-3 tie and held on for a 5-4 win against the Nats. Blake Treinen was unable to work around Cutter Dykstra's error, which rendered both runs unearned though Treinen was dinged for three hits to ...

#Nats Win Again, 6-4:http://bit.ly/1Eu9kj6
The offense churned out 10 hits and the bullpen survived a late charge as the Nats defeated the Tigers, 6-4 to win consecutive games for just the third time this spring. Stephen Strasburg struck out five over four scoreless innings to get the “W.” The 26-y.o. gave up three hits and no walks ...

#Nats Clip 'Stros, 2-1: http://bit.ly/1wSbRnl
Clint Robinson's two-out RBI triple was the difference in a 2-1 slugfest to secure the first Washington win in nearly a week. The 7th-inning surge made a winner out of Felipe Rivero, who tossed two shutout frames with no walks and two strikeouts. Rivero was the second reliever to follow starter ...

#Nats Back At .500, Day Off Tomorrow; More Cuts: http://bit.ly/1BcnD8y
The Nats rallied for three in the bottom of the 7th to overcome a 6-4 deficit and held on for 7-6 win that brings Washington's 2015 spring record to .500 at 9-9-3. Doug Fister was dinged for four runs on seven hits, including two home runs as he pitched four and a 1/3rd innings in his fourth ...

#Nats Play #Tigers to 0-0 Tie; More Cuts: http://bit.ly/1B7mcHA
The Nats managed just five hits over 10 innings on offense while their pitchers gave up just seven to play the visiting Tigers to a ten-inning, 0-0 tie, the second of the spring for Washington. Gio Gonzalez spun four innings of two-hit ball, walking one and striking out five in his third outing.

.@MinorLeagueBall on the @nats_prospects hitters: http://bit.ly/1GWn46p
The whine for the longest time has been that the Nats don't do enough in the International market. The 2011 CBA dramatically changed that avenue — read: spend your entire allotment *and* incur penalties for one (1) player — but the recent influx of Cuban players has brought that caterwauling ...

.@MinorLeagueBall on the @nats_prospects pitchers: http://bit.ly/1GXA6UG
The John Sickels 2015 annual arrived last night in my inbox, which isn't quite as satisfying as getting a package in the mailbox, but it's faster and cheaper. As is my tradition, I'll break up discussing the book into two posts — one for hitters, one for the pitchers.

.@Nationals Winless Streak Extended to Five: http://bit.ly/1FpEMRr
The bell did not toll for Heath as the Astros blasted the 37-y.o. non-roster invitee for all three of its runs in the 5th and held off a late rally for a 3-2 win over the Nationals in Kissimmee. The loss was the third straight and fourth in five games as the Nats have not won since last ...

News and Notes on the Nationals Minors from the perspective of the fan, sportswriter, and amateur scout
Introduction
NationalsProspects.com was founded in the fall of 2009 by Jordan Tuwiner of Orioles-Nation.com (formerly OriolesProspects.com). Luke Erickson signed on as the Lead Writer in December 2009 and assumed full ownership of the site in June 2010. Luke is a former sportswriter and a lifelong baseball fan that typically attends 70+ baseball games per year. As the masthead says, the site is dedicated to providing news and notes from those viewpoints, mixed in with some amateur scouting and humor, too.
