Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman made history on Wednesday night, becoming the first National League player to hit three or more homers at Camden Yards. Zimmerman is just the fourth opposing player to hit three or more homers at Camden Yards. Last season, Josh Hamilton had a four-homer game for the Rangers against the Orioles on May 8. Severna Park native Mark Teixeira hit three homers for the Rangers on July 13, 2006, and Oakland's Erubiel Durazo hit three homers against the Orioles on August 18, 2004.

One day after the rain postponed the game between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park, the two teams are scheduled to meet at Camden Yards tonight. Same pitchers, slightly different lineup now that the designated hitter is back. Steve Pearce returns to the lineup for the Orioles, batting second and playing left field. Nelson Cruz returns to the designated hitter spot. He is batting fourth. For the Nationals, Ryan Zimmerman will serve as the designated hitter.

The long-accepted theory around these parts is that Camden Yards morphs from a neutral park to a hitter's haven in late May to early June when the temperatures start heating up and the humidity thickens. It was 86 degrees at first pitch Wednesday night, and the Orioles and the Washington Nationals collectively breathed life into the great shrinking ballpark theory with an eight-homer barrage that culminated in a 9-6 Orioles victory before an announced crowd of 39,129. “I think it is a completely different ballpark in the way it plays [when the weather is warm]

After hitting a two-run home run in the 11th inning Monday, Chris Davis is back in the Orioles' starting lineup Tuesday against Washington Nationals right-hander Doug Fister. The hot-hitting Steve Pearce is out of the lineup for the second consecutive game because the Orioles have no designated hitter in interleague play in a National League ballpark. Nelson Cruz, who leads the major leagues with 28 home runs and 73 RBIs and often serves as the designated hitter, is playing left field again Tuesday.

The future has arrived for the Nationals. In the midst of its best start since moving to Washington from Montreal, 19-year-old phenom Bryce Harper will make his much-anticipated MLB debut for the Nationals on Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Washington will place third baseman Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list to make room for him on the roster. "We thought that we needed to bring in an impactful left-handed bat," said Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo of Harper.

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.

WHERE'S THE OFFENSE? Perhaps the Orioles hitters are just tired of playing meaningless games and are ready to flip the switch on Opening Day tomorrow. That, at least, has to be manager Dave Trembley's hope. The offense continued its struggles last night, managing just two hits, both singles. Jay Payton led off the second inning with a single to left field, and Luke Scott had an infield hit in the sixth inning that was basically a swinging bunt. The Orioles had at least 10 hits in 10 of their first 11 games this spring but in just three of their final 18 games of the exhibition season.

WASHINGTON -- Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams has seen Buck Showalter make bold late-game decisions before. The Orioles manager, who was the Arizona Diamondbacks' skipper and coached Williams there from 1998-2000, once made one of the gutsiest calls in baseball history. On May 28, 1998, Showalter's Diamondbacks were clinging to a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded and Barry Bonds stepping to the plate. Instead of pitching to the powerful San Francisco Giants slugger, Showalter elected to walk him intentionally and concede a run.  The next batter, Brent Mayne, worked a full count and then lined out to deep right-center field, sealing a Diamondbacks win. “It takes a great deal of intestinal fortitude, I guess is the right way to put it, to do something like that,” Williams said before Monday's game.

— 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.

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.

When they came together in the spring, the Washington Nationals often heard a phrase that reminded them of the team's task in relation to the state of the franchise. The maxim, manager Jim Riggleman said, was "keeping the needle moving forward." The Nationals' 39-50 record at the All-Star break left them with a tinge of disappointment after a promising start that had them a game out of first in mid-May. The Nationals could have played better; they believe they should have. Despite the letdown of again finding themselves in last place, the Nationals no longer must ward off ridicule, charges of incompetence or the league's worst record.

One year ago, Chad Tracy tried to keep his career alive in Japan, halfway out of baseball and halfway around the world. Saturday afternoon, after another crucial hit keyed another delirious rally that led to another Washington Nationals victory, Tracy became, briefly, the No. 2 Twitter trending topic in the United States. Two games in, the Nationals' season has already reached this level of absurdity? They already believe they can win without offense from innings from one through seven?

Brad Lidge did not expect to find himself on the mound for many ninth innings this season, certainly not on Opening Day at Wrigley Field. He signed with the Washington Nationals in late January with the understanding, despite his 223 career saves, that he would set up and provide a mentoring voice. "Give the guy a million dollars and let him look after the kids," said Lidge, 35. But there he was Thursday, capping an idyllic afternoon with save No. 224, finishing a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs filled with both unexpected twists and predictable themes.
