— On Tuesday night, under a starless sky at Citi Field, Ross Detwiler pitched exactly the way the Washington Nationals envisioned he would in 2007 when they drafted a beanpole left-hander out of Missouri State with the sixth pick. Five years later, and one week after the Nationals made him part of their rotation to start the season, Detwiler had arrived. With five overpowering innings in a 6-2 Nationals victory, Detwiler handed the New York Mets their first loss and validated the Nationals' decision to include him in their starting rotation.

World champion Philadelphia is still leading the National League East, but the team has to be looking forward to the end of interleague play. The Phillies are 3-6 against the AL East, winning their first series at new Yankee Stadium, but losing five of six at home this week to the Red Sox and Blue Jays. The Phillies are coming off a sweep by the Jays, who outscored them 23-11. Philadelphia (36-28) is a dismal 13-19 at Citizens Bank Park. And the news gets worse for the Phillies.

On Sunday afternoon, the Washington Nationals copied the formula that gave them two victories to start this season — except for the important part. Their offense stalled. Their pitching, in this case seven stellar innings from Jordan Zimmermann, kept them in the game. They staggered the Chicago Cubs in the final innings. They just never completed the comeback. In a 4-3 loss before an announced 31,973 at Wrigley Field, the Nationals nearly shocked the Cubs again after Adam LaRoche drilled a two-out home run in the top of the ninth, an offensive spasm after another punchless beginning.

While some of the usual names appeared among the victors when the results were announced on Thursday — including Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols and Twins catcher Joe Mauer — there were only five repeat winners from 2009, tying the record low for the amount of turnover for the 30-year-old award. The low was previously set in 1982. The Rangers' Vladimir Guerrero won his eighth award overall but his first since he moved from the outfield to DH. He was joined on the AL squad by Rangers teammate Josh Hamilton , who made it for the second time as an outfielder.

Money the clear choice Steve Gould Baltimore Sun Of course Jayson Werth should have taken the Nationals' money. First, he's 31 years old. He knew going in that whatever contract he signed — even if it weren't for the seven years they gave him — could be the last of his career. Even if he had signed for four years, there's no telling what would be out there when he's 35 and his production has, in all likelihood, slipped. Also, it's not as if we're talking about some hard-luck loser who has never sniffed the postseason.

Michael Morse, who had struggled early in the season after winning the left-field job in spring training, went 3-for-4 with his first home run of the season, a three-run blast in the third inning, to lift the Washington Nationals to a 6-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday and back to .500 for the season. The Nationals provided a break from their offensive stagnancy, piling up a season-high 15 hits and scoring more runs than they had in their three previous games combined.

PHILADELPHIA — Nolan Ryan once found himself on a game show with the legendary Satchel Paige. The two killed time talking baseball, and for Ryan it was another chapter in his hardball education. Paige asked Ryan at one point if he knew the best pitch in baseball, and the self-conscious Ryan didn't want to embarrass himself. He said he wasn't sure. "Bow tie," Paige told him. "I never heard of it, Satch," Ryan said. "What kind of pitch is that?" "That's when you throw a fastball right here," Paige answered, running his hand across his Adam's apple, and smiling wickedly.

The first boos cascaded from the Citizens Bank Ballpark stands as Jayson Werth stepped out of the on-deck circle, not knowing what to expect, ready for his first at-bat here as a Washington National. They continued, louder and louder, coming from Philadelphia Phillies fans who held aloft signs that read "$tiff" and "Welcome Back Loser" and "I only came to boo Jayson. " By late Tuesday night, when Werth's old team had again asserted its superiority over his new one, this time with a 4-1 victory, Werth and, surprisingly, Phillies fans had shown their appreciation for one another.

PHILADELPHIA - Standing on the Citizens Bank Park field last night in the middle of the chaos, being drowned out by euphoric fans and just missing the champagne shower delivered by a teammate, Philadelphia Phillies reliever J.C. Romero tried to smile. With one hand, he clutched his 2-year-old daughter; with the other hand, he brushed a tear from his eye. "I have a very humble heart right now and am so thankful for this opportunity," said Romero, the winning pitcher in the Phillies' 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series' Game 5 clincher.
