Quick update here after the sixth inning, with the Nats still leading the Diamondbacks 1-0.
— John Lannan tossed six scoreless innings, allowing only three hits but uncharacteristically walking six batters. That’s as many walks as Lannan had in his last four starts combined. But the lefty made pitches when he needed to and got out of some dicey jams to depart with a chance to win his second game of the year.
— Ryan Zimmerman is 0-for-3 with three flyouts to right field, and the hit streak is most definitely in jeopardy. Zim may only get one more at-bat. A hit would extend the streak to 27 games. An out would end it at 26.
— Adam Dunn is absolutely butchering first base tonight. He’s been charged with two errors, could have been charged with a third and has looked shaky on a couple other plays. He’s still in the game for now, but I’ve got to believe if the score stays the same Nick Johnson will finish this one.
