WASHINGTON (AP) -- Livan Hernandez pitched his first shutout in nearly six years, allowing only four hits in the Washington Nationals' 8-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.
Hernandez didn't allow a hit after pitcher Randy Wolf's single in the fifth. He struck out three and walked two in his eighth career shutout -- his first since July 30, 2004, while with Montreal.
It was the second straight outstanding start for Hernandez, who threw 112 pitches. He worked seven scoreless innings in New York on April 11, giving up five hits to the Mets.
