Closer? Riggleman won't even say the word

08:13 AM ET 04.29 | Some have a closer, some have a closer by committee, but our nation's capital has no closer. Manager Jim Riggleman said the Nationals will continue to approach the Nationals' save situations on a case-by-case basis. Drew Storen has converted his last three save situations, while Burnett has allowed six runs in his last seven innings. But Riggleman isn't leaning toward one as his closer. "I don't think I even want to use the word," Riggleman said. "I just want to get outs in the ninth. Let's finish the game, get outs. I'm not going to get too caught up in who gets the save. I just want us to get the save." Riggleman did say he would consider using [Sean] Burnett earlier in the game if there was a stretch of left-handers, but that isn't much different than what he said in spring training about how he wanted to handle the late innings of games.
