News: Fister took advantage of facing the Reds to extend the best season-opening start by any Washington pitcher in a 4-2 Nationals' win Sunday. Impact: Fister allowed just three hits with one walk - he has walked more than one batter in just three of his last 17 starts dating back to last season - and five strikeouts in seven shutout innings to reach 10 wins in 14 starts, one fewer than any previous Washington pitcher. Gio Gonzalez reached 10 wins in 15 starts in 2012, and Jordan Zimmermann duplicated him last season.(STATS, 5:43pm)

News: Fister threw seven shutout innings Sunday against the Reds to get his 10th win of the year. He allowed three hits and a walk while striking out five. Impact: It's hard to tell whether Fister was brilliant or the Reds just awful - they fielded a lineup that included Skip Schumaker, Jack Hannahan, Donald Lutz and Ramon Santiago. Nonetheless, Fister took advantage of the opportunity and also managed to get the actual major-league-quality batters out on a regular basis as well.(RotoWire, )

News: Fister, who twisted his ankle slightly towards the end of Monday's start, will be fine for his next turn in the rotation, Nick Kosmider of reports. "I tweaked it a little bit, but I'll be fine," Fister said. "It will probably be sore for a day or two." Impact: After watching Ryan Zimmerman go down with a hamstring injury on Tuesday, the Nationals dodged a bullet with Fister. He'll face the Reds on the road Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Fister earned his ninth win of the season Monday, giving up two runs on nine hits and two walks in 5.2 innings against the Rockies. Impact: This was not Fister's sharpest outing of the season as he allowed 11 baserunners, but he somehow skated through with only two earned runs. The right-hander improved to 9-2 with a 2.92 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 49:10 K:BB ratio in 83.1 innings. Fister will toe the rubber Sunday in Cincinnati.(RotoWire, )
