Nationals Baseball... again

Last season, the Dodgers staggered to a 13 hit, 3 walk donut against the Phillies. The 13 hits is the most in any shutout, matched twelve other times, since 1954. Today, the final game before the All-Star Break, the Nats figured they'd make a run at history.

They came close, managing 11 hits and 3 walks while getting blanked by future Hall of Famer* Brian Moehler. Wil Nieves accounted for four of those hits. All in all, this accomplishment has only been matched or bested 22 times in the past 55 seasons.

Another creative way to lose.

* UNC Greensboro HOF, not Cooperstown, fool.
