MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Chris Capuano's special pitch against the Nationals has a nickname - "Funky McNasty."

Capuano showcased that changeup against Washington and the Milwaukee Brewers have now won eight of nine.

Capuano struck out nine and Geoff Jenkins hit a homer in the 3-0 win over the Nationals.

Ned Yost coined the term for Capuano after watching a bullpen session from his dominant lefty.

Capuano was struck in the leg with a line drive in his last start.

Capuano is now 5-0.

He pitched eight-plus innings, allowing seven hits and walking none.

Francisco Cordero got three outs for his 13th save in 13 chances.
