Nationals land Papelbon in trade, fall to Marlins 4-1

MIAMI (AP) The Washington Nationals have a new closer, landing All-Star Jonathan Papelbon from the Philadelphia Phillies.

That means their newly demoted closer isn't happy.

And the NL East race is shaping up to be a whole lot of fun down the stretch.
