The Washington Nationals received another stellar start from Doug Fister (10-2) as he tossed seven shutout innings to lead the Nationals to a 4-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds. On the day, Fister threw 104 pitches and threw 76 strikes. He only permitted three hits while fanning five batters. Tyler Clippard pitched a scoreless eighth inning from the bullpen. Aaron Barrett allowed...
The conditions at Coors Field, like mud on a horse track or dim lighting at a bar, can equalize mismatched contestants. High altitude and vast expanses of outfield grass ensure even the most motley outfit will stumble into one ripe opportunity, one chance to send a game-altering hit hurtling through the thin Rocky Mountain air.

Doug Fister? Yes. Babe, Willie, Jackie, and Doug.

Then the Rangers series happened. That series has only somewhat relieved my apprehensions about the offense. Nonetheless, the offense should improve with the return of Ryan...
Oh sure, Doug Fister (7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 93 pitches-63 strikes) was impressive again in winning his fourth straight start yesterday (Nationals 4, Phillies 2). But even more impressive? How about Fister doing full splits on a stretch while covering first base to *almost* complete a double play on a Ryan Howard grounder in the first inning? Watch the MLB...
What better way to celebrate your return from the DL and first start with a new team than with a wild, airmailed throw to first? Up above, a GIF by the great @md_dc of Doug Fister's wild,airmailed throw in the first inning Friday night in Oakland, which eventually cost him (and, you know, the Nationals) a run.
