On Thursday the Washington Nationals racked up 10 runs against the New York Mets. On Friday they put up zero against the Florida Marlins in a 3-0 shutout loss which snapped their wining streak at five games.
It was a highly disappointing night for the Navy Yard Boys. The line up produced no offense only tallying five hits off the Marlins Javier Vasquez who pitched a complete game shutout. Starting pitcher John Lannan went six innings giving up three runs on eight hits. Lannan issued three walks (all early in the game and the beginning of his troubles) and struck out only one. After giving up the game's three runs in two innings, Lannan settled and was able to blank the Fish for three innings before being relieved.
The offense left him hanging however and Lannan failed to get his 10th win of the season.
The Nationals are now 71-78 on the season.
