Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Benjamin Button...

What are three things that were much longer than the Nationals 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night at Nats Park?  (a brisk 2 hour and 12 minute ballgame)

Gio, Gio, Gio...Gio Gonzalez pitched 7 innings of shutout baseball with 8 strikeouts and 2 walks while only allowing 2 hits to pick up his first win of the season.  That makes 2 gems in a row by Nat-Gio.  He has now pitched 14 innings of shutout baseball, giving up only 4 hits, walking only 2 batters, and striking out 15 batters.  (Look's good!  Conan voice)

The Nats offense wasn't around again, scoring only on a play with 2 outs where the Astros made a fielding mistake.  (didn't count as an error, but it was a terrible and costly mistake).  Thanks to a scoreless 8th by Clippard and a nerve-wrecking 9th by Lidge, the Nats got the win.  Lidge earned his 2nd save of the season.

Guess who had the RBI ... Adam LaRoche (tied for 3rd in the MLB)

Harrell vs Zimmermann tomorrow 7pm...
