At some point you hope the Dodgers will look at the calendar, see it's the middle of May and realize that they can no longer tolerate continued non-production from Luis Cruz. That they cannot allow catcher Ramon Hernandez to take up a spot on the roster. That healthy pitchers return and fill-ins head out. But if Josh Beckett continues to struggle, the options are not so clear. Beckett has started eight games this season and is still in search of his first victory. He failed again on a warm Monday night, lasting only three innings in the Dodgers' 6-2 loss to the Nationals.

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels has been suspended five games for intentionally throwing at Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper. "I was trying to hit him," Hamels said after Sunday's game, during which he hit Harper in the back with a pitch in the first inning. "I'm not going to deny it. " Major League Baseball announced the penalty Monday. Hamels also was fined an undisclosed amount. Hamels added, "It's just, 'Welcome to the big leagues.' " Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann hit Hamels in the leg with a first-pitch fastball two innings later.

Having finished their season's business at home with the Miami Marlins, the Dodgers returned to the major league portion of their schedule Monday against the Washington Nationals. And the results were predictable, with Jordan Zimmermann holding the Dodgers to two runs in 72/3 innings and Ryan Zimmerman driving in three runs in a 6-2 Nationals win at Dodger Stadium. That ended a two-game winning streak and left the Dodgers winless in eight consecutive games against teams not from Miami.

Boston's Kevin Youkilis and Detroit pitcher Rick Porcello were suspended for five games each Wednesday and fined by Major League Baseball, a day after their brawl at Fenway Park. Youkilis will begin his suspension during Wednesday night's game against Detroit. Porcello appealed, and no penalty will take effect until the process is complete. MLB Vice President Bob Watson cited Youkilis for charging the mound, throwing his helmet at Porcello and inciting Tuesday night's bench-clearing tussle.

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.

After the Dodgers' series-opening game against the Washington Nationals was declared a rainout, the team released a vague and carefully worded 127-word statement that said Kershaw has an impingement in his hip and is soliciting the opinions of other specialists ...

Cole Hamels earned a five-game suspension for the way he welcomed Bryce Harper to the big leagues. The 2008 World Series most valuable player was suspended for intentionally throwing at the Washington rookie in the Philadelphia Phillies' 9-3 win over the Nationals on Sunday night. Major League Baseball announced the penalty Monday. Hamels also was fined. "I was trying to hit him," Hamels, a two-time All-Star left-hander, said Sunday night. "I'm not going to deny it. I'm not trying to injure the guy. They're probably not going to like me for it, but I'm not going to say I wasn't trying to do it. I think they understood the message, and they threw it right back.
