Brandon Webb: Back to Business

Like Brandon Webb was going to let back-to-back losses mess with his game. Pssh.

The 2006 NL Cy Young Award winner was back in dominant form Saturday night, tossing his eighth career shutout to help snap the Arizona Diamondbacks' five-game skid with a 4-0 win over the Washington Nationals.

Webb (10-2, 2.69 ERA) allowed a total of six singles in his 14th career complete game (second this year) striking out eight batters. And boy, did he work fast. The game lasted just one hour and 52 minutes for the shortest contest in the history of Chase Field. That should quiet the Bud Selig Bitchfest for a while.

That's all for this girl today, off to the Dome to see if the Twins can manage to avoid a Bronx Bombers sweep this afternoon. Happy June!

Webby rescued the sinking D-backs once again (5-game losing streak)...he's the man.
