Storen lucked into a save Saturday having to record just one out in the 4-1 win over San Diego.

Storen struck out one batter in a perfect ninth inning Sunday to notch his ninth save of the season.

He continues to excel as the Nationals' closer. After pitching on back-to-back days, however, don't be surprised if Aaron Barrett or Tanner Roark get the nod on Monday instead of Storen if a save situation arises for the Nats.

Storen picked up his first win of the season Saturday, tossing a perfect inning in a tie game before Bryce Harper ended it with a walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth.

While the Nats have had trouble finding pitchers who can be consistent set-up men for him, Storen has been a rock as the team's closer and now sports a 1.38 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 13:3 K:BB ratio in 13 innings to go along with eight saves in nine chances.

Storen worked a perfect ninth inning on Sunday to notch his seventh save of the season.

He doesn't have dominant raw stuff, but Storen can generate a lot of weak contact, and his 1.64 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB ratio through 11 innings have made him one of the best closing options in the NL through the first weeks of the season.

Storen gave up two hits during a scoreless ninth inning en route to his fourth save of the season on Sunday against the Phillies.

The veteran has stepped comfortably into the full-time closer's role this season, going 4-for-4 in save opportunities while posting a 1.80 ERA thus far. Storen isn't piling up the strikeouts, but should be considered a very reliable fantasy relief pitcher moving forward.

Storen struggled on Sunday, allowing a run on a hit and two walks in the 10th inning, but still escaped the game with his second save of the season.

It will take a lot more than a single hiccup for Storen to lose his spot as the Nationals' closer, especially with Tyler Clippard now in Oakland and Casey Janssen (shoulder) on the DL, so Storen's fantasy owners shouldn't worry just yet. He still figures to be a solid source of saves this season.

Storen picked up his first save of the year Wednesday, tossing a perfect ninth with two strikeouts against the Mets.

Fantasy owners should be mindful that Storen has been suffering from a foot blister and isn't ready to pitch on back-to-back days. That means someone else in the Washington bullpen -- Aaron Barrett or Blake Treinen, most likely -- could be called upon if there's a save chance Thursday.
