Webb traps Nats, unable to escape, 1-0 loss OR Saturday night shutout

The good news was, it was a mercifully short game, lasting only 2 hours 11 minutes. Also, Nats starter John Lannan went 7 strong innings.

The bad news was, the Nats lost their 2nd straight game to the Arizona Diamondbacks, this time by the score of 1-0, under the dominating pitching of reigning National League Cy Young Award winner, Brandon Webb, who extended his consecutive shutout innings pitched to 33.

John Lannan (I am SO tempted to call him "The Walrus") really did the best that could be expected of him, surrendering only 1 run in 7 innings, allowed 4 hits and walked 2. For a guy who hasn't even been in the major leagues a month, he's doing exceptionally well.

Not much to say about the Nats performance tonight. Felipe Lopez was 1 for 4, Nook Logan was 2 for 3. Robert Fick was 1 for 3.

Ryan Report: Church went 1 for 4 with a double. That's all, folks.

Thank goodness the Nats don't have to face Brandon Webb again until next season.
