Ross missed high against Jason Heyward and walks him. His fourth walk of the game. Doug Fister gets up in the bullpen.
Report: Tigers Showing Interest in Fister
Zimmermann, Desmond Get QOs; Span Doesn't
Report: Blue Jays Interested in Fister
Ross walks Peralta on four pitches. His fifth walk of the game. Fister is warming but Ross will face Kolten Wong.
And Fister isn't the ideal choice here. You needed someone who can warm up qucikly, not a starter. Man.
Ross walks his third straight batter and walks in a run. Nats up 4-2. That's finally it for him. MW gets him and Fister coming in.
Cardinals score 2, cutting the #Nats lead to 4-2 here in the 4th inning. Doug Fister will take over for Joe Ross.
Doug Fister is now in the game
Doug Fister enters the game in the third inning after Ross walks in a run. #Nats lead 4-2.
Now Doug Fister has lost control. He just hit Mark Reynolds with a pitch. 4-3, #Nats over the #Cardinals.
Fister then hits Mark Reynolds on the elbow (?) with his second pitch. Drives in a run. Nats lead down to 4-3.
Just keeps ketting worse. Fister, a starter, rushed to warm up and hits Reynolds. Terrible.
Fister strikes out Moss to get out of the jam. Nats and Cards each sent nine batters to plate that inning.
And now Fister has to hit to lead off the next inning, giving away yet another out. MW would have been MUCH better served w/short reliever.
Fister allows a hit, but tosses a scoreless 4th inning. #Nats lead, 4-3. @Bharper3407, #Zim and Escobar due up.
Dan Uggla will pinch hit for Doug Fister here in the 6th inning. #Nats
Storen warming for the 8th. Janssen & Rivero unavailable based on workload, and likely Fister, too. Other options: Solis & Papelbon.
And here comes @dougfister58! This is the first save opportunity of Fister's career.
That's a final! #Nats top the #Phillies, 8-7, in 11 inn! Papelbon gets the W; Fister gets career S. No. 1; JW HR 2x! http://t.co/ZuSa8AtMom

Doug Fister will take over on the mound for the #Nats in the sixth.
Scoreless, 11-pitch 6th for #Nats' righty Doug Fister. Still 6-2 #Marlins after 5 1/2 in #Nationals Park.
Two scoreless frames for @dougfister58. #Marlins up, 6-2, as the bottom of the seventh begins with @WRamosC3.
Gonzalez is done after 4 2/3 innings. Fister in.
With two outs in the fifth, #Nats Manager Matt Williams summons Doug Fister from the 'pen to face Caleb Joseph. #Orioles up, 4-1
Doug Fister strikes out two in the sixth inning, and fires some of the best sinkers he's thrown in a while. Darting sharply down.
Yeah, @dougfister58! Fister retires all six batters he faces before Matt Thornton is summoned to face lefty Chris Davis.
Fister will give way to Matt Thornton with two out in the seventh and Davis coming to bat.
