Every ballplayer has his own reaction when an opponent intentionally walks the batter in front of him. Some gear up even more than they normally would.
Game in a nutshell: On a steamy night on South Capitol Street, the Nationals stayed hot against the Rays.
Tampa Bay relief pitcher Joel Peralta received an eight-game suspension by Major League Baseball on Thursday for having pine tar in his glove during Tuesday's Nationals vs. Rays game.
How good has the 1-2 punch of Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez been this year? Well, consider that the Nationals' record when either of their aces starts is an astounding 22-5.
