What You Need to Know: June 1, 2015

The Reds turn things around, the Dodgers avoid infamy, and Dallas Keuchel is really good, plus what to watch today.

The Weekend Takeaway
The Reds entered Friday having lost 10 of their last 11. The Nationals entered Friday having won 9 of their last 11. Both teams would see their fortunes take a U-turn over the weekend.

The series began inauspiciously for the Nationals, as the struggling Stephen Strasburg left the game after only sixteen pitches with a neck and/or back issue for which he would later be placed on the 15-day DL. The Nationals took a 2–1 lead in the top of the sixth, but the Reds answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning and added some insurance with Todd Frazier's fifteenth home run of the season.

There have been a lot of zeroes put up on the board so far in 2013.

Earlier today, the Mets shut out the Nationals 2-0 marking the 49th time in the young 2013 season that a baseball team has failed to score in a game. If that seems like a high number, it is. Since the league last expanded in 1998, the most amount of shutouts in a season's first full month is 52 which happened in the 2011 season. The fewest amount of shutouts happened in 2000 when there were just 29 shutouts in the first full month of that season.
