07:15 AM ET 08.14 | The Nationals woke up Wednesday morning 14 games out of first in the NL East, and it appears tensions are on the rise. During the first inning of the Nationals and Giants game on Tuesday night, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area's broadcast caught a tense moment between Gio Gonzalez and Jayson Werth in the Washington dugout. Werth walked past Gonzalez and said something that provoked Gio to turn around and start yelling back at the outfielder, causing pitching coach Steve McCatty to step in the pitcher's way. Werth kept walking and appeared to take a seat in the corner of the dugout after the exchange. It was likely about a defensive mistake Gonzalez made in the first inning on a would-be inning ending double play. Gonzalez was slow to cover first on a Buster Posey groundball and Ian Desmond and Adam LaRoche clearly weren't happy with the miscue.

Cheerleaders "spar" over a messed up routine. If two guys don't at least head butt each other then who cares?

Nothing to see hear. I love the will to win.

Werth, MR. inconsistency himself at the plate and the field.... has no room to talk. This club is just not showing any real life. The pitchers have been keeping them in games, time and time again - to only end up with NO RUN SUPPORT. So a hitter - really needs to keep his mouth shut.....

It's been a pretty miserable season in DC.

So true. I'd like to see 'em end up the season playing well. Inconsistent hitting, poor relief pitching, lazy fielding errors, no leadership from the top.......a recipe for a lackluster season. Even at that they have shown a few flashes of what COULD be with a better effort. On the plus side I really like that kid Rendon and Strasburg, despite a poor record due mostly to no run support, has been pretty solid throughout. Wait til next year!!!!!!

You just left one, though.

This team should still be in the hunt at this time of year.

The will to win is admirable (Werth), but basic fundamentals help.

Davy Johnson announcing he was leaving after this year , in hind sight he might have been better served keeping it to himself and waiting until mid Sept if Washington was out of post season picture. When Johnson announced early he was quitting it seemed like Nationals were quitting already on Johnson. Lack of hustle by pitcher to cover first. players anemic with bats That plus Atlanta seems to lose maybe once a week.

Only from the outside looking in.

I think I saw last night Stras' era is 1.35 at home. Just can't ever get any run support.

Lots of positives to take away. Honestly I think we over-achieved in 2012. We're still a good young ball club. If the media tells it, yeah.... Bad season.

Werth is swinging one of the hottest bats in the NL the last two months. He's the only one actually driving in runs.
