Nationals: Who is this guy?
Washington Nationals starter Shairon Martis just completed his sixth shutout inning at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. Martis made a little baseball history by pitching a seven-inning no-hitter for the Netherlands against Panama in the 2006 World Baseball Classic, but skipped the event to vie for a spot in the Nationals rotation this spring.
Looks like that's working out for him. He looks like he's finished for the day after giving up just three hits.
Meanwhile, Orioles rotation candidate Alfredo Simon has pitched two innings so far and given up a run on two hits.
