Inside the Box: Pitching rules again in Washington
After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the
box score and
provide you with instant analysis. So it’s time to go
Inside the Box for
August 24, 2011: Diamondbacks 4, Nationals 2
Daniel Hudson followed Ian Kennedy’s strong performance
with one of his own, coming within one out of a complete
game. He allowed nine hits and two runs while striking out
Miguel Montero’s 8th inning single scored what proved to
be the winning runs.
It was unfortunate that Hudson was not able to finish the
complete game shutout. He got within one out of finishing
the game before allowing back-to-back solo home runs to
Laynce Nyx and Jonny Gomes.
J.J. Putz came on to record the fantasy baseball player’s
dream, the one-out save. It is the 32nd game Putz has
locked down for the D-backs this season.
