Nats put struggling closer Doolittle on 10-day injured list

WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Nationals have put struggling closer Sean Doolittle on the 10-day injured list with right knee tendinitis, a day after he gave up three home runs in the ninth inning against Milwaukee.

The NL wild-card leaders made the move Sunday. They recalled righty Kyle McGowin from Double-A Harrisburg.

Doolittle has posted a career-worst 4.33 ERA with 28 saves. But the lefty blew his sixth save try Saturday in a 15-14, 14-inning loss. Doolittle allowed four runs on four hits while recording just one out in pitching for the second day in a row.
