Rafael Soriano faces the minimum for fourth save
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Rafael Soriano had a bit of cushion, and picked up his fourth save of the season pretty easily in a 3-1 win over the Cardinals.

Soriano walked one hitter to put the tying run at the plate with one out, but ended any possible threat by inducing a game-ending double play from the next batter. He is now perfect in four save opportunities, and has yet to allow a run in six innings this season.

Gio Gonzalez gets back on winning side
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez bounced back from his first loss of the season Friday, in a 3-1 win over the Cardinals.

Gonzalez allowed just one run in seven innings of work, his third start with one or no runs allowed. The one run scored on four hits and a walk, and he struck out seven batters en route to the win.

Gonzalez has had just one misstep through his first four starts, but still enters his next start with a 3-1 record and 2.88 ERA in 25 innings. He will next take the mound Wednesday against the Angels. a

Blake Treinen will resume starting in minors
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pitcher Blake Treinen spent his time with the Nationals pitching out of the bullpen, logging 6 2/3 innings over three appearances before being sent down Friday. The team wants Treinen to work as a starter at Triple-A Syracuse, in case he is needed for the rotation down the road.

"He is going to build his innings down there, certainly work on his secondary pitches. He has a pretty electric fastball," manager Matt Williams told MLB.com Friday. "He pitched really well for us."

Treinen will join the rotation Tuesday for Syracuse, a role he is used to. He made 20 of his 21 appearances for Double-A Harrisburg as a starter in 2013, posting a 3.64 ERA over 118 2/3 innings of work.

Wilson Ramos increasing work in rehab
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was able to grab a bat and take five dry swings Friday, the first time he has done so since suffering a broken hamate bone in his left hand. He said the hand feels strong, but he needs to build up strength in his wrist now.

"I was swinging easy, swinging the bat," Ramos told MLB.com. "Right now I'm working hard with my hand. My hand feels good. It's a just a matter of getting my wrist strong. That's what I'm working right now."

Ramos had the stitches taken out of his hand earlier in the week, and has been able to begin minor exercises to strengthen it. He is expected back sometime in May.

Wilson Ramos able to take light swings
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was able to take light swings Friday, according to CSN.

Ramos said there was no discomfort, but admitted his wrist still felt weak. It was the first time he swung a bat since hamate surgery. Wrist weakness is common after this type of injury, so there's no concern about a setback at this time.
