It's a beautiful day for the ballgame. And it just so happens there's a ballgame being played in the nation's capital this afternoon. How fortuitous.
Game in a nutshell: In a highly anticipated matchup between a two-time Cy Young Award winner and a young fireballer who hopes to win that award some day, Stephen Strasburg out-dueled Johan Santana.
CHICAGO -- Two games. Two tepid performances for seven innings that leave everyone scratching their heads and wondering how in the world this team is ever going to score enough runs to win.
Game in a nutshell: Stymied once again by a Cubs starter (Matt Garza this time) the Nationals waited until the Chicago bullpen entered to inflict their damage.
