Jonathan Papelbon tossed a scoreless ninth in Thursday afternoon's 1-0 win over the Marlins, locking down his first save since being traded from the Phillies on June 28.
Everything went according to plan. Former closer Drew Storen entered in the eighth inning and struck out two of the three batters he faced, then handed the 1-0 lead over to Papelbon, who worked a scoreless final frame while striking out one. Storen might not be happy about losing his job, but if he can set aside his personal feelings, the Nationals' new combination for the eighth and ninth could be lethal. Prior to the trade, Paps was pitching to a 1.59 ERA and 40/8 K/BB ratio over 39 2/3 innings. He's now a perfect 18-for-18 in save chances between his two teams. Jul 30 - 3:17 PM
