MIAMI (AP) The Washington Nationals have a new closer, landing All-Star Jonathan Papelbon from the Philadelphia Phillies.

And the NL East race is shaping up to be a whole lot of fun down the stretch.

On the night the Nationals got Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman back from long stints on the disabled list, they also landed Papelbon from the Phillies and wasted no time announcing that he will be taking over the closer duties from Drew Storen. It didn't help Washington any Tuesday night, as the Nationals lost to the Miami Marlins 4-1.
