Capuano, Dodgers Sweep Nationals
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Capuano struck out nine while combining with two relievers on a four-hitter, James Loney drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals with a 2-0 victory on Sunday.
Capuano (3-0) allowed three hits and two walks in 6 2-3 innings, helping send the Nationals to their fourth straight loss after they entered the series with an NL-best 14-5 record.
Kenley Jansen followed Josh Lindblom out of the bullpen and pitched a hitless ninth for his second save in three chances after starting out with six straight balls and getting a visit from pitching coach Rick Honeycutt. Jansen then struck out his next two batters and fanned Jesus Flores with runners at first and second to end it.
