GAME OF THE DAY

Webb has another gem in 1-0 victory

August 12, 2007|From the Associated Press

PHOENIX -- Brandon Webb pitched his second shutout in a row to extend his scoreless inning streak to a club-record 33 and lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to their 17th victory in 20 games, 1-0 over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.

Webb's complete game followed a three-hit, 3-0 complete-game victory over the Dodgers last Sunday.

The right-hander pitched consecutive shutouts for the second time in his career. He did it last season, on May 20 against Atlanta and May 26 against Cincinnati. He hasn't yielded a run since the sixth inning of a 6-2 loss to the Cubs in Chicago on July 20, five starts ago.

It was the second year in a row that Webb has thrown consecutive shutouts. The only other Arizona pitcher to do it was Curt Schilling in 2003.
