As Washington Nationals right-hander Doug Fister aims to become the first Nationals starter to earn a win in five consecutive starts since Gio Gonzalez turned the trick, May 5-27, 2012, he faces a re-match of Game 2 of the 2012 World Series. Fister opposed San Francisco Giants lefty Madison Bumgarner that night and pitched well, though the Detroit Tigers fell, 2-0. Fister was also hit in the head with a line drive in that game but was, fortunately, unhurt.
