Jonathan Papelbon earns second Nationals' save
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Newly-acquired closer Jonathan Papelbon recorded his second save for the Nationals and 19th save of the year, Tuesday against Arizona. 

Papelbon remained perfect in save opportunities this year. He allowed an unearned run, the second time in three Nationals' appearances he's been scored upon. 

For the first time in the last seven appearances, Papelbon didn't strike out a batter.

Nationals' Stephen Strasburg to throw bullpen session on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg is set to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday, the next step in his recovery from an oblique strain. Strasburg threw an impressive rehab start on Monday, striking out 11 batters in 5 2/3 innings with Triple-A Syracuse.

"I felt good. My stuff is there," Strasburg said, per CSN Washington DC. "Just try to keep doing the same things and working on the stuff I’ve been doing. It’s going in the right direction."

Strasburg came out of that start feeling good, and the Nationals will determine whether he needs another rehab start or if he's good to return from the DL, following his bullpen session on Wednesday.

"When you have 11 strikeouts you’re doing something right," manager Matt Williams said. "It shows command for getting ahead in the count. We rely on the people that see him pitch, as well, beyond the stat sheet. Command for his breaking ball as there. Changeup off the fastball was there. And the fastball sat at 95, 96 and touched 98, so that’s all positive things for him moving forward. It means he’s feeling good and he’s got no apprehension letting the ball go."

This season, Strasburg is 5-5 with a 5.16 ERA in 13 starts for the Nationals. He has been on the disabled list twice so far this season.

Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman chips in solo home run in loss
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman helped his team try to get back into the game on Monday, as he hit a solo home run in the ninth inning. It wasn't enough however, as the Diamondbacks would hang on for the 6-4 win.

Zimmerman's home run, his seventh of the year, cut Arizona's lead to five. He went 1 for 4 in the game, and is 6 for 27 with a pair of solo home runs since returning from the disabled list last week.

Nationals SP Doug Fister allows three homers in loss Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.
