NEW YORK (AP) -- Michael Taylor's parents planned to come see him this weekend, so they missed his smashing start. At least the rookie had a proud souvenir to show them -- barely.
After losing two of three in Atlanta - the final loss among their most frustrating this season - the Nationals now head north to New York for a three-game series against the Mets.
Debate all you want whether he’s the ace of the Nationals’ staff, the stopper, the best starter, whatever designation comes to mind. Doug Fister doesn’t care what title he holds right now.
