Nats improve to 11-3 on a bullpen win and some clutch hits. Papelbon with big Save: Recap

Jonathan Papelbon gets a nailbiter save and strikes out Stanton to end the game. Joe Ross had to leave the game after 2 innings with a blister and the bullpen was nails. Yusmeiro Petit, Oliver Perez, Blake Treinen, and Papelbon combine for 7 innings and 1 run given up.

RBIs by Ryan Zimmerman, Bryce Harper and Michael Taylor with the solo HR. Daniel Murphy extended his hitting streak with 2 hits.

Jayson Werth also left the game early with left hamstring discomfort.

With this win the Nationals are back to the best record in the Majors as the Cubs lost earlier today.
