Nationals-Marlins Preview

(AP) -- While the offense for the Washington Nationals is finally healthy, their bullpen just became much stronger - but perhaps unhappier.

Armed with new closer Jonathan Papelbon for the stretch run, the NL East leaders continue their series with the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night.

Holding a tenuous one-game lead atop the division, Washington (52-46) bolstered its relief corps by acquiring the six-time All-Star with 342 saves on Tuesday from Philadelphia. Papelbon, who would not agree to the trade unless he was guaranteed the closer's spot, also restructured his contract for 2016.
