      Nationals' Doug Fister earns first career save on Monday

      Nationals pitcher Doug Fister (5-7) earned his first major league save, walking one and striking out two over a scoreless inning in Monday's 8-7 win over the Phillies. Fister has now joined the ranks of Kyle Lohse and Jerome Williams as one of the more unlikely save recipients of 2015. The right-hander's appearance was borne of necessity, as Washington had already endured a blown save and used six other relievers. A free agent-to-be, Fister will look to rebound from his lost season and earn a rotation spot.

      Doug Fister loses spot in rotation for Nationals

      Matt Williams has not declared that the odd man out for the Nationals when Stephen Strasburg returns to the rotation Saturday is Joe Ross, who filled it for him. It's Doug Fister, who has lost four of his last five decisions. Fister will head to the bullpen with 20 earned runs allowed in his last 34 innings pitched. His ERA has risen from 2.87 in mid-May to 4.60. He has just two quality starts in his last six outings and one win since June 25.

      Nationals SP Doug Fister allows three homers in loss Monday

      Nationals starter Doug Fister had a rough outing against the Diamondbacks on Monday. The right-hander was bitten by the longball, as he allowed a trio of home runs in the 6-4 loss. On the night, he allowed five runs on eight hits over six innings. He did strike out six without walking a batter, but overall it was another shaky start for Fister. Fister (4-7, 4.60 ERA) allowed a solo home run to Nick Ahmed in the third inning before David Peralta (two-run shot) and Welington Castillo went back-to-back in the fourth. This is the fourth time in his past six starts that Fister has allowed at least four runs. He owns a 5.29 ERA over that stretch.

      Nationals SP Doug Fister struggles again in Thursday loss

      Nationals right-hander Doug Fister called his Thursday start in Pittsburgh "inexcusable." But it was no worse than some of his others lately. Fister, who added that his sinker was moving sideways rather than down, needed 99 pitches to get through five innings in which he allowed four runs on nine hits. He walked one and struck out six in lowering his record to 3-6. His problems began immediately on an RBI triple by Starling Marte in the first and Pedro Alvarez homer in the second. A run-scoring double by Jung Ho Kang in the fifth added to his misery. Fister, who put up almost identical numbers in his previous outing, has surrendered 28 runs in 43 innings over his last eight starts to send his ERA soaring from 2.87 to 4.50.

      Nationals SP Doug Fister fires seven shutout innings Thursday

      Nationals right-hander Doug Fister was excellent in his start against the Braves on Thursday. Fister was making his second start since returning from the disabled list with a forearm injury, and this one went much better than the previous one. On Thursday, Fister threw seven scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out four in the 6-0 victory. This was Fister's first scoreless outing since he went 6 1/3 shutout innings on May 3. He finished with 111 pitches on Thursday. "[He] continued to be down in the zone, forcing contact," manager Matt Williams said, per "We pushed him to 110-ish, which was good. Got him through that last inning, too, which was good. I thought he pitched really well. He was in command out there, throwing it where he wanted to." Fister had given up 12 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings over his last two starts, straddling his stint on the DL. So this was a nice bounceback for the veteran righty, who now sports a 4.15 ERA on the season. "I wanted to push myself today, and [manager Matt Williams] let me go back out there in the seventh," Fister said. "That's huge for me, is being able to go back out there and prove to teammates and prove to myself that I can go out there and finish an inning. I hadn't done that this year, so that was a positive note for me personally. It takes a lot of plays in the outfield, plays in the infield, guys turning double plays early on in the game to enable me to do that."
