RESULT: Nats shut out by Brewers 5-0.

GOOD: Not much. Lastings Milledge went 2-for-4 with a stolen base. Jesus Flores went 2-for-4. They combined for four of the team's five hits against Brewers starter C.C. Sabathia.

BAD: There weren't a lot of hits, but Milledge and Flores were able to get on base. Ronnie Belliard, hitting in the line-up directly behind the two however, went 0-for-3 and left 4 men on base.

UGLY: Jesus Colome. Seems like every time he pitches he gives up a run. No different last night. 2 IP, 2 BBs, solo home run to J.J. Hardy.

NEXT GAME: Tonight vs the Brew Crew at 7:05 eastern. Tim Redding (8-6, 4.44) against Ben Sheets (10-5, 3.14).
