Nats shut out Yanks for shocking series win
Craig Stammen and the Washington Nationals really dampened the New York Yankees' day.
After waiting out a 5 1/2-hour rain delay at the beginning, Stammen earned his first major league victory, Julian Tavarez provided key relief and the last-place Nationals beat New York 3-0 Thursday night in the first game without a homer at the new Yankee Stadium.
"When you have three meals at the ballpark before you start the game, it's been a long day," Nationals manager Manny Acta said. "It was worthwhile."
