Washington Nationals news & notes: Nats wrap up home schedule; Davey Martinez thanks fans...

With a split of their doubleheader with Atlanta’s Braves on Sunday, manager Davey Martinez’s ballclub wrapped up the home-half of their 2023 schedule with a 34-47 record in Washington, D.C.’s Nationals Park this season (vs. a 35-41 record on the road with five games to play).

The Nationals’ 34-47 mark in 81 games in the nation’s capital this season is an improvement over the 26-55 mark the club finished in 2022, and 19 of their wins have come in the second half, after the club got off to a rough start at home this year.

Asked before the first game of two with the Braves on Sunday what was behind those early season struggles at home, Martinez told reporters he thought it was a case of a young team maybe trying too hard in front of their fanbase.
