When the Nationals are involved in historical moments, left-hander John
Lannan knows when to rise to the occasion. On Aug. 6, 2007, Giants
outfielder Barry Bonds was a home run away from the being the career
home-run leader. But Lannan held Bonds hitless in three at-bats in San
Francisco. Tuesday was another historical night. Braves right-hander John
Smoltz, 40, became the 16th pitcher to reach career strikeout No. 3,000.
But the Nats won the game, 6-0, thanks to a superb performance by Lannan.
He tossed seven innings and giving up five hits.

Lilly finally picked up his first win of '08, in his last start against the Mets. The
lefty gave up one run on four hits, four walks and struck out four over six innings.
His velocity was better, he was able to mix in his breaking pitches, and he was
more aggressive. All good signs for Lilly, who won 15 games last season. He is 3-2
with a 2.06 ERA in six games against the Nationals in his career.
