GB&U: Lost In The Desert

Posted by Dave Nichols | Sunday, June 01, 2008 | , | 0 comments »

RESULT: Nats lose to D-Backs 4-0.

GOOD: Brandon Webb. Complete game six-hit, no walk shut out with 8 Ks. That's about as good as it gets. I don't usually give out the "GOOD" award to the opposition, but you gotta give props where they're due. Webb threw a gem.

BAD: Webb needed only seven pitches -- all of them strikes -- to retire the Nationals in the first. The Nats put a man in scoring position only three times.

UGLY: Catcher Jesus Flores was "fine" on Saturday, according to Manager Manny Acta, but kept him out of the lineup as a precaution. Flores left Friday night's game with dizziness and nausea after being hit by a pair of foul tips to the head.

NEXT GAME: Sunday the Nats try to win the series. Shawn Hill (0-1, 4.02) faces Dan Haren (5-4, 3.75) at 4:10 EDT.
