WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Nationals have traded second baseman Daniel Murphy to the Chicago Cubs and first baseman Matt Adams to the St. Louis Cardinals, essentially throwing in the towel on a disappointing season.

The third-place Nationals announced the moves Tuesday before beginning a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Despite a roster that boasts such stars as Max Scherzer and Bryce Harper, Washington began the day with a losing record of 62-63, 7+ games behind the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves.
