2010 Washington Nationals season

2010 Washington Nationals season

The Washington Nationals' 2010 season was the sixth season for the American baseball franchise of Major League Baseball in the District of Columbia, and the 42nd since the original team was started in Montreal, Canada. It involved the Nationals attempting to win the National League East Division after a 59–103 season the year before – the worst record of any MLB team in 2009. Jim Riggleman was kept as full-time manager after being instituted on July 12, 2009 after Manny Acta's firing.

Highlights from the season include Stephen Strasburg's 14-strikeout Major League debut on June 8 against the Pittsburgh Pirates and a bench-clearing brawl on September 1 at the Florida Marlins.

The Nationals finished 2010 last place in the NL East for the third year in a row with a 69-93 record, though they did have a ten game improvement from 2009. They had a 41-40 record at home, their first winning home record since 2006.

Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman won the Silver Slugger Award for the second straight year as the best offensive third baseman in the National League.
