Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg underwent arthroscopic surgery in Los Angeles to remove bone chips from his right elbow. The team said outfielder Bryce Harper and first baseman Adam LaRoche also had operations last week. Harper had the bursa in his left knee repaired after it had hampered him last season. LaRoche had his left, throwing elbow cleaned up. All three are expected to be ready by spring training. Strasburg, whose procedure was performed by Dodgers team physician Neal ElAttrache, is scheduled to resume his off-season throwing program in four to six weeks, the Washington Post reported.

Adam LaRoche had four hits and brother Andy LaRoche drove in two runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 7-4 victory over the Florida Marlins on Wednesday and complete a three-game sweep. Florida began the series with an 11-1 record, a seven-game winning streak and a 6-0 road record but was outscored, 18-6, and swept in a three-game series by Pittsburgh for the first time since May 30-June 1, 2005.

Here's something few predicted in spring training: The Washington Nationals are the first team to reach 70 wins this season. Armed with a pitching staff that had the National League's lowest earned-run average, 3.21, the Nationals' record through Friday was 70-43. They were atop the NL East - where they've spent most of the season - 41/2 games ahead of the Atlanta Braves. Three of their starting pitchers - Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg and Ross Detwiler - have ERAs under 3.00.

Colorado 4, at Milwaukee 3: Ubaldo Jimenez gave up three hits in seven innings and Matt Holliday hit his fourth home run in four games for the Rockies, who have won six of seven.

You've seen the play a million times. Routine ground ball. First baseman picks up the ball, runs it to the bag for the out, "3U" in your scorebook. Adam LaRoche picked up the ball, but he did not run. "I was kind of out of it," he said. He walked the ball to the bag. The runner beat him there. "I wasn't even thinking there was a runner," LaRoche said. The crowd booed, his home crowd. LaRoche apologized to his pitcher, then his manager. "It looked like I was being lazy," he said.

The Angels are all but out of the running for Boston slugger Manny Ramirez, and their chances of acquiring Atlanta first baseman Adam LaRoche appeared to fade Tuesday. General Manager Bill Stoneman and Braves GM John Schuerholz met for the second day in a row, and Schuerholz, who is talking to Pittsburgh about closer Mike Gonzalez, made it clear he doesn't want to give up his best bargaining chip without getting a pitcher.

Adam LaRoche became the first player to have a home run taken away by video replay, but it didn't prevent the last-place Pittsburgh Pirates from beating the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-2, on Wednesday. LaRoche's long drive with a runner on in the first inning struck a railing or a small protective screen above the 21-foot wall in right field -- both objects are in play -- but first base umpire Lance Barksdale signaled a home run.
