Ervin Santana was tagged for six runs on seven hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over 6.1 innings on Thursday.
Ervin has really been struggling of late now allowing five or more runs in four of his past six starts. Ervin will have a chance to rebound in his next start when he faces the Phillies who are hitting only .232 against right handed pitchers this season.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
