      Washington Nationals lose to Arizona Diamondbacks 4-0

      Michael Morse can't handle a ground ball during the Nats 4-0 loss.

      PHOENIX (AP) — Stephen Drew hit a three-run triple in the fifth inning, Josh Collmenter pitched seven sharp innings and the surging Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Washington Nationals 4-0 on Friday night.

      Collmenter (4-1), allowed three hits, struck out five and walked one, improving to 3-1 with a 1.23 ERA in five starts since he entered the rotation last month.

      David Hernandez and Joe Paterson each got three outs to complete the three-hitter, Arizona's 17th victory in 21 games. The Diamondbacks (32-26) began the night only a half-game out of first in the NL West.

      Yunesky Maya (0-1), making his second start of the season, allowed four runs and six hits in 4 1-3 innings for the Nationals.
