Nationals' Williams backs closer Drew Storen after first blown save
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Nationals closer Drew Storen suffered his first blown save of the season Tuesday against the Cardinals. However, his off-night did not cost the Nationals, who won the game in extra innings.
Storen has allowed a run in two of his first six outings and has allowed two hits in each of his last two appearances. But there is no closer controversy with the Nationals, manager Matt Williams told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday.
"Storen's available today," Williams said. "Going to give him ball again. He's our closer. Been really good for us. I know he wants ball every time."
Storen has four saves and a 3.00 ERA in six innings. He also has seven strikeouts.

Nationals' Drew Storen records third save Thursday

|(4/16/15) Nationals closer Drew Storen picked up his third save of the season Thursday, giving up one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 5-2 win over the Phillies.
Storen, who has delivered back-to-back scoreless outings since giving up a run while recording a save Sunday, threw nine of his 13 pitches for strikes Thursday to get the job done. He owns a 2.25 ERA and 5:2 K:BB ratio in four innings.
Drew Storen gets shaky second save for Nationals
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/12/15) Closer Drew Storen picked up his second save of the season in the Nationals' 4-3, 10-inning victory over the Phillies on Sunday, but it did not come easy.
Storen started the bottom of the 10th with a two-run lead, but walked the first two batters he faced, putting himself in a big hole. However, he got Grady Sizemore to strike out on a slider for the first out of the inning and Chase Utley to fly out to right for the second out.
He allowed an infield single to Odubel Herrera to close the gap to 4-3 before retiring Cesar Hernandez on a sharp grounder to first to end the contest. Storen's ERA is 4.50 on the season.
|2014 Summary: After seemingly disqualifying himself as a viable closer option with an uncharacteristically bad 2013, Drew Storen was one of the best relievers in baseball in 2014. That made him the choice over Tyler Clippard to replace a struggling Rafael Soriano in September. He never looked back, piling up 10 saves in the span of three weeks. In all, he had 11 to go along with a 1.12 ERA, second-best among relievers with at least 50 innings.|
Playing time status: Storen's move back to closer, a role he held prior to missing the first two-thirds of 2012 because of elbow surgery, was supposed to be temporary, but since he never relinquished the role, the Nationals must have liked what they saw. With Soriano hitting the open market this offseason, the smart money has Storen closing in 2015, four years after he first proved he could do it with 43 saves.
2015 Outlook: Drafted to close back in 2009, Storen's career has come full circle, but to say he's tailor made for the role would be overlooking one obvious drawback: In five big-league seasons, he has never averaged a strikeout per inning and had only 7.3 per nine in 2014. Closers who don't miss bats are inherently dangerous, but Storen is certainly good enough to keep the job. Another sub-2.00 ERA is unlikely, but he's worth targeting in the same range as Zach Britton, just after the top 12 relievers go off the board.
