The Nationals lost to the Braves 4-3 in 10 innings Sunday, but Austin Voth had a good afternoon on the mound.

Voth tossed six innings of two-run ball, striking out seven Braves in his first MLB start of the 2019 season. 

And after the game, the Nats made a roster move, optioning Erick Fedde to Triple-A Fresno. 

Fedde took over as Washington's fifth starter when Jeremy Hellickson was placed on the 10-day injured list with a shoulder injury. In six starts, Fedde went 1-1 with a 3.94 ERA.

But after his performance Sunday, it appears Voth has taken Fedde's spot in the rotation.
