Nationals lose first game in last series of 2006

 Tony Armas and John Maine solid in first couple of innings, both going for shut-outs, but both ended up out of the decision.  Armas throws 112 pitches, but that is just in 5 innings.  Nationals lose 4-3.  

Of Note: Zimmerman gets 110th RBI, but batting average falls to .289.  Church hits 10th home-run of season and goes 2 for 4, raises average to .270.  Lopez steals a base, his 44th.  And the Nationals handed out blankets to the first 15,000 fans at the game.  Tonight, I think, t-shirts will be handed out, and on Sunday, 2007 preliminary schedule handed out.

In the last two games of the season, RHP Beltran Perez with his 2-0, 1.50 record, will face off against LHP Tom Glavine (14-7, 4.94) on Saturday (today), and RHP Ramon Ortiz (11-15, 5.32) will face off against RHP Steve Trachsel (15-8, 4.97) on Sunday to end the year.
