WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Nationals have fired pitching
coach Randy St. Claire and promoted Steve McCatty from Triple-A to
replace him.

The Nationals have the worst record and ERA in the majors. St. Claire was in his seventh season with the franchise, and was the only coach to be retained after last season.

McCatty was moved up from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.
