SAN FRANCISCO -- Doug Fister said he never thought about what played out his last time in San Francisco once he took the mound again at AT&T Park, except for how to approach the familiar foes at the plate. The right-hander turned in a solid performance each game -- and this time he got the result he wanted. Fister flipped the script from his previous start in San Francisco during the 2012 World Series, tossing seven scoreless innings to help the Washington Nationals beat Madison Bumgarner and the Giants 2-1 on Tuesday night. "Its still part of how I attack a hitter or two," Fister said. "There are some of the same guys that are over there now. Some of that experience came through and determined what I chose to throw." Bumgarner and the Giants foiled Fister and the Detroit Tigers 2-0 in Game 2 of their World Series sweep. The rematch, albeit on a regular-season stage with a different team, played out in Fisters favour. Jayson Werth and Denard Span each drove in a run during a two-run fifth to snap Bumgarners career-best, six-game winning streak. Werth also threw out a runner at the plate from right field in the sixth. Fister (5-1) allowed eight hits, struck out three and walked one for his fifth straight win. "It was a constant battle tonight," Fister said, "but we were able to do what we wanted to do." Brandon Crawford tripled leading off the ninth and scored on Brandon Hicks groundout for San Franciscos only run. Tyler Clippard escaped a jam in the eighth and Rafael Soriano rebounded in the ninth for his 13th save. Washington has won three in a row and nine of 11. "The Giants have certainly made a habit of coming back and coming back late," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "They put together some pretty good at-bats late and gave themselves a chance. We were able to get it tonight, but you dont want to mess with that too much." The Nationals stopped San Franciscos five-game winning streak with a 9-2 victory in Mondays series opener. And they continued to slow down the team with the best record in baseball by beating its hottest pitcher on a windy, chilly night in San Franciscos waterfront ballpark. Span drove in a run with a sacrifice fly and Werth singled home another against Bumgarner in the fifth. That was all Washington needed to end Bumgarners winning streak. Bumgarner (8-4) allowed eight hits in seven innings. He struck out five and walked one intentionally. The tall left-hander with the deceptive fastball was selected NL player of the month for May after going 5-0 with a 2.08 ERA. He hadnt lost since April 28 against San Diego. "Theyve got a well-rounded team," Bumgarner said. "It comes down to whether they execute or not, but theyve definitely got the talent over there." It was a far better feeling for Fister than his last start in San Francisco, which came on a warm October evening in 2012. He was struck squarely in the head by Gregor Blancos line drive in the World Series, a ball hit so hard it caromed into shallow centre field, though the 6-foot-8 pitcher appeared unhurt and stayed in the game. Every time the Giants put together a few hits this time, Fister flexed his best stuff -- and so did his new club. In the third, San Francisco put two runners on before Buster Posey struck out. Pablo Sandoval, who finished with three hits and a walk, and Michael Morse singled to start the fourth before Fister induced three consecutive flyouts. In the sixth, Sandoval doubled and tried to score on Crawfords two-out single to right. Instead, Werth charged in to field the hard-hit ball and easily threw out the portly Sandoval at the plate. Clippard allowed two baserunners with one out in the eighth before completing his 20th consecutive scoreless inning. NOTES: Nationals C Wilson Ramos left in the eighth with right hamstring tightness.

A first-round pick in 2012, Stroman pitched a one-run, eight-inning gem to beat the New York Yankees on June 23 and was then solid in a no-decision versus the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. Stroman allowed two runs on just two hits and a pair of walks over 6 2/3 innings, fanning six. The 23-year-old was pulled in the seventh frame after giving up a double and a walk, but reliever Dustin McGowan served up a three-run homer as the White Sox jumped in front. "If you could do things over, you leave [Stroman] in," Jays manager John Gibbons admitted. "But my thinking was, he pitched his butt off, it was kind of uncharted territory, I dont want him to lose the game right there. Thats the way it goes. But you always look back on things like that. I had a plan and it just didnt work." Stroman, a right-hander, is 4-2 with a 4.01 ERA in 11 total appearances on the year. Oakland hurler Tommy Milone will try to stretch his unbeaten streak to 11 starts in a row on Friday afternoon when the Athletics play the second contest of a four-game set with the Toronto Blue Jays. Milone is 6-0 with a 2.87 earned run average since his last loss on MMay 3 and the As are 8-2 over his unbeaten streak.dddddddddddd The left-hander lost his first three decisions of the campaign, but now sits at 6-3 on the year with a 3.79 earned run average. Milone has won three of his past four starts, giving up three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and two walks over seven frames of a victory over Miami on Sunday. The 27-year-old is 3-0 with a 3.12 ERA in seven outings at home this year, but has lost both of his previous career meetings with the Blue Jays while yielding 11 earned runs over 13 innings. The Blue Jays fell into a tie for first place in the AL East with Baltimore after losing last nights opener 4-1. It marked Torontos fourth setback in six games and came despite R.A. Dickey giving up four runs -- two earned -- over a complete-game setback. He was outdueled by Oaklands Sonny Gray, who yielded a run over seven innings. Gray struck out five and scattered four hits and three walks to help the As snap a three-game slide. "His curveball was disgusting tonight," said catcher Stephen Vogt on Oaklands website. "It was back to the Sonny Gray that Ive known for the last year and a half. Hes got one of the best curveballs in baseball, and he had it tonight." Toronto swept a three-game series at home from May 23-25 and won two of three in Oakland a season ago. ' ' '
