Nationals' Jonathan Papelbon survives shaky outing for 21st save
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon allowed a run to score in the ninth inning, but was able to bounce back and close out the 4-2 victory over the Padres on Thursday. Papelbon picked up his 21st save of the season, and his fourth as a member of the Nationals.

Papelbon has now given up three runs in eight outings since coming to Washington in a trade at the end of July. Overall this season, he is a perfect 21-for-21 in save opportunities and owns an impressive 1.85 ERA.

Nationals SP Joe Ross dazzles in victory on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals rookie starter Joe Ross enjoyed an excellent outing against the Padres on Thursday. The young right-hander allowed one unearned run on just one hit over six solid innings. He walked two and struck out seven, en route to the 4-2 victory.

Ross (5-5, 3.24 ERA) posted the finest start of his young career, as this was the first time he did not allow an earned run in any of his 11 outings. 

Ross made six starts in August and did not fare all that well. He went 3-2 with a 5.03 ERA in August.

Nationals CF Denard Span (hip) going back to DL on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Two days after being activated from the disabled list, Nationals center fielder Denard Span is heading back to the DL on Thursday. The Nationals placed the oft-injured Span on the 15-day DL with left hip inflammation. 

Span missed about six weeks with back tightness, and this latest ailment appears to be related to that injury. It is not yet clear if Span will need more than the minimum 15 days before returning.

The Nationals will announce a corresponding roster move on Friday.
