Nationals News: Hello, Storen!

  The Nationals designated Brian Bruney for assignment and purchased the contract of Drew Storen from AAA, who will fly to St. Louis and will join the team in time for tonight's game.  He was brilliant in the minors, pitching to a 1.08 ERA in 16.2 innings, with 15 baserunners allowed and 15 strikeouts.

  Newly minted major leaguer Drew Storen says that Stephen Strasburg's stuff is "unfair."

  The Nationals are baseball's biggest surprise, especially given the difficulty of their early season schedule.

  Mike Morse is back with the Nationals after straining his calf four games into the season. He will mostly be a bench player, but got the start yesterday after Adam Dunn was scratched.  Dunn was planning to play, but he felt sick when he arrived at the park. Jim Riggleman doesn't like giving anyone with power time off at Coors Field, but he didn't have much choice in this case. 

  Livan Hernandez volunteered to pitch Wednesday's game on short rest after Friday's postponement threw off the Nationals' rotation.

  Scott Olsen gave the team a great start yesterday (6.2 innings, 1 ER), but the bullpen gave up the game.

Around the League...

  Cubs manager Lou Piniella says that winning is the only thing that matters to him.

  The Marlins swept the Mets over four games.
