"It's tough," Storen said. "It tests your will a bit. That's what this game is about. It's not easy. It's not easy to get here, it's not easy to stay here, it's really not easy to be an elite guy, especially down in the bullpen. You're the hero or the zero. So, I've been on the wrong end of things recently, but got a couple weeks to turn it around."
"I made good pitches and sometimes those ground balls find a hole," said Storen, who was demoted from closer to set-up man when the Nationals acquired Jonathan Papelbon from Philadelphia before last month's trade deadline.
