Nuno deserved a better fate his last time out against the Phillies. He allowed four runs (two earned) in 6 2/3 innings. He threw a career-high 117 pitches. Nuno was victimized by some poor defense in the game.

The Vanimal was spectacular in twirling his first career shutout Monday in San Francisco, but that was only the best of his six quality starts -- out of the seven he has made. He's shown exceptional control, averaging a walk per start.
