Doug Fister


Doug Fister struggled early Wednesday, but still managed to pitch seven innings while giving up only two runs in a win against the Orioles.


GAME IN A NUTSHELL: Playing their first game in an AL park with a healthy lineup, the Nationals had an opportunity to field a lineup built both with offense and defense in mind for a change.


The Nationals rattled off four straight wins mostly by pounding opposing pitchers to a pulp and then watching their own pitching staff mow through lineups.
