News: Thornton pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Brewers, giving up a hit and striking out one.
Impact: He hasn't been a key part of the Nationals' setup crew this season, instead drifting into a LOOGY/middle-relief role, but Thornton still has a solid 2.87 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 15 holds in 31.1 innings on the year.
