OFF TO THE WEST COAST
Coming off a series victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers this week, Washington travels west this weekend for the first of 3 trips to the “Left Coast” in 2014...to-night, the Nationals will face former farmhand and the organization’s 2010 Minor League Pitcher of the Year, Tommy Milone...this weekend’s 3-game Interleague set will be followed by a return to the National League, Mon. at ARI.
GETTING HEALTHY
Washington welcomed back Scott Hairston (26 games) and Wilson Ramos (32 games) from significant DL stints this week...Hairston has hit safely in both games since being reinstated Mon., while Ramos (1-for-2, RBI, BB) plated the eventual go-ahead run in Wed.’s 3-2 win over the Dodgers...in addition, Doug Fister will make his Nationals debut tonight after missing the first 34 games with a right lat strain.
RUNS AMOK
Despite significant injuries to Wilson Ramos, Ryan Zimmerman and Bryce Harper, Washington has plated 143 runs in 34 games...by doing so, the Nationals’ run pro-duction is up 18.1 percent compared the initial 34 contests of 2013 (121 runs).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 15-1 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 4-14 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
ARMED AND DANGEROUS
At 3.03, the Nationals are currently 3rd in MLB in team ERA (ATL 2.77, STL 2.95)...in 18 games dating to Apr. 18, Steve McCatty’s staff has fashioned a 2.10 ERA (38 ER/163.0 IP) and allowed more than 4 earned runs just 3 times.
K STREET
Nationals pitchers rank 2nd in MLB in strikeouts (317) while leading in K/9.0 (9.30) and strikeout percentage (24.5)...the last DC team to pace MLB in strikeouts: the 1919 AL Nationals (536).
FISTER MAKES 5
The Nationals are 18-10 in games started by Stephen Strasburg (6-2), Gio Gonzalez (5-2), Jordan Zimmermann (4-3) or Tanner Roark (3-3) and 1-5 in all other contests.Doug Fister, after beginning 2014 on the 15-Day DL (right lat strain), is scheduled to make his Nationals debut on tonight at OAK...from 2011-13, the Tigers finished 46-32 (.613) in 75 regular- or postseason contests started by Fister.
BULLISH ON THE NATIONALS’ ‘PEN
At 2.11 (26 ER/110.2 IP), Matt LeCroy’s bullpen is one of just 3 in MLB to currently sport a sub-2.50 ERA for the season (Giants 1.77, Padres 1.88).
BETTER TO BE SAFE WITH SORI
Dating to Aug. 27, 2013, Rafael Soriano has tossed 25.0 consecutive scoreless in-nings, the longest consecutive scoreless innings streak of his career...Soriano’s streak is the longest in MLB for relievers over that stretch and is also the longest in the 9-plus season history of the Nationals (2005-pres.) among relief pitchers.
SLOW STARTS, FANTASTIC FINISHERS
While the Nationals have run up a 17-run first-inning deficit (17 for, 34 against) this year, Washington has outscored opponents, 66-30, in from the 7th inning on.• The Nationals pace MLB with a +36 run differential after the 6th inning (a.k.a. 7th-inning+) with the CWS (+23) ranking 2nd.
DC’S COMEBACK KIDS
Washington’s 10 comeback wins are tied for 2nd in MLB behind only the Tigers (11)...like the Nationals, the Brewers and Rockies also have 10 come-from-behind wins in 2014.
MEET MATT WILLIAMS
Matt Williams, 48, was named the 5th field manager of the Nationals on Oct. 31, 2013...the managerial position is the first of his career...joins the Nationals organiza-tion after spending the previous 4 seasons on Kirk Gibson’s coaching staff in ARI...Williams hit .268 (1878-for-7000) with 338 2B, 378 HR, 1218 RBI and 997 runs in 1866 games spanning 17 decorated seasons with ARI (‘98-03), CLE (1997) and SFG (‘87-96)...Williams was a 5-time All-Star (‘90, ‘94-96, ‘99) and a 4-time recipient of the Rawlings Gold Glove (‘91, ‘93-94, ‘97) and Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger (‘90, ‘93-94, ‘97) awards...his 359 career homers as a third baseman ranks 5th on the all-time list (Mike Schmidt 509, Eddie Matthews 486, Chipper Jones 389, Graig Nettles 368). • Williams reached the postseason on 6 occasions, won 3 pennants and claimed a World Championship (2001 Diamondbacks)...in all, played in 51 postseason games/18 World Series contests...sports previous managerial experience gained with the Salt River Rafters (AFL division title, ‘12) and the Double-A Mobile Bay-Bears (skippered final 5 weeks of ‘07 after Brett Butler suffered a mild stroke)...Williams’ baseball DNA traces back to his grandfather, outfielder Bert Griffi th, who was a member of the 1924 World Champion AL Nationals...born in Bishop, CA and a native of Carson City, NV, Williams is an alum of UNLV.

OAKLAND ATHLETICS
With Washington’s initial visit to O.co Coliseum, the Nationals have now visited every MLB city and played in 33 different ballparks...the A’s and Nationals share little history, but make up for it as frequent trade partners...Mike Rizzo and A’s VP/GM Billy Beane have consumat-ed 7 trades since Dec. 2010 (41 months)...those trades have involved, among others, Fernando Abad, Jerry Blevins, A.J. Cole (twice), Gio Gonzalez, John Jaso, Henry Rodriguez, Tommy Milone, Derek Norris, Brad Peacock, Kurt Suzuki (twice), Blake Treinen and Josh Willingham.
THE SERIES
The Athletics and Nationals match up for the first time since 2005...the A’s (0-3) have never beaten the Nationals, but did sweep a 3-game home set from the Expos...the Nationals’ sweep of OAK in 2005 came in the midst of an electric 12-1 RFK homestand and a 20-6 month of June...meanwhile, OAK’s home sweep of the Expos (June 13-15, 2003) came in the penultime series of Montreal’s never-ending 22-game “roadtrip” (final record: 8-14) that included ports of call in Miami, Phila-delphia, San Juan (6 games), Seattle, Oakland and Pittsburgh.

FISTER, Doug (RHP) #58
Likely the biggest addition of the
offseason for the Nation-als...joins the Nationals rotation after going 32-20 with a 3.29 ERA in two-plus seasons (Aug. 2011-2013) with the Tigers.
AGAINST THE A’s:
 Is 5-5 with a 3.17 ERA in 12 career starts against OAK...in those 12 starts, was touched for 2 or few-er earned runs 10 times, including 7 assignments allowing one or zero earned runs...the 5 wins at OAK’s expense are tied for most against a single opponent with CLE & MIN. • Makes long-awaited Nationals debut...missed 6 weeks with a right lat strain suffered in Spring Training...in 2 Grapefruit Lg. starts (Mar. 2 vs. MIA & Mar. 22 vs. MIA), walked one, struck out 6 and allowed one run in 5.2 inn.• Has averaged 29 starts the last 4 seasons and twice eclipsed the 200-inning plateau (208.2 in 2013, 216.1 in ‘11).In 2013 (final season with DET), posted career highs with 14 wins and 159 strikeouts en route to ranking among AL leaders in GDPs induced (tied first, 26), home runs allowed per 9.0 innings (2nd, 0.60), ground ball-to-fly ball ratio (3rd, 2.17/1) and walks per 9.0 innings (4th, 1.90).Spanning 3 seasons, made 7 postseason starts for the Tigers, who went 6-1 in those Oct. contests.In 12 career games/11 starts against NL competition entering ‘14, was 4-3 with a 2.09 ERA (17 ER/73.1 IP)...in 73.1 career in-nings against NL foes, was touched for just one home run (Prince Fielder, June 26, 2010 at Miller Park).
