Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Luke Weaver looks to follow up on his stellar last start when he faces the host Washington Nationals on Saturday.
Weaver (1-0, 2.13 ERA) took a no-hitter into the seventh against Cincinnati before settling for seven shutout innings on one hit, one walk and one hit batter. He struck out eight.
"I think the control with the fastball is ultimately what I've been telling (pitching coach Matt) Herges," said Weaver, who threw 94 pitches -- mostly fastballs -- against the Reds. "If I can hone that in and really locate to both sides, then all the other stuff comes together. It all starts with that."
