Toronto Star - - SPORTS -

CINCIN­NATI— Look­ing to for­tify a bullpen that has blown 14 of 36 save chances, the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als ac­quired re­liev­ers Ryan Mad­son and Sean Doolit­tle from the Oak­land Ath­let­ics for right-han­der Blake Treinen and a pair of prospects, left­hander Je­sus Luzardo and in­fielder Shel­don Neuse. Mad­son has a 2.06 ERA and is seventh among re­liev­ers in hits plus walks per in­ning at 0.79. Doolit­tle has held left-handed bat­ters hit­less in 23 at-bats this year with 12 strike­outs and no walks.
