A few hours after Vernon Davis ended his offseason contract holdout Wednesday and reported to the 49ers on the eve of their first training-camp practice, quarterback Colin Kaepernick was asked if he was surprised by the Pro Bowl tight end's arrival.
What about absent right guard Alex Boone?
Boone is reportedly prepared to engage in a lengthy holdout in hopes of landing a contract that will pay him commensurate with his performance.
 a mainstay on the offensive line, Boone signed a modest four-year extension in 2011 when he was a backup tackle and ranks 40th among NFL guards in average annual salary.
While trying to help his batters solve Bartolo Colon, Seattle manger Lloyd McClendon couldn't avoid thinking about the possible outcome as the later innings arrived.
The idea of Colon tossing a perfect game never left McClendon's mind until Robinson Cano's two-out single in the seventh inning.
"I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about it.
Early on, Stephen Strasburg didn't have his best stuff and yet the powerful right-hander tried to bear down to keep his team close.
Almost paid off, too.
The Washington Nationals loaded the bases in the ninth before falling 6-4 to Jorge De La Rosa and the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday.
Strasburg (7-8) settled in after a shaky start, giving up four runs — three of which were in the first — and nine hits over 5 1-3 innings.
"Giving up three runs early, I could've easily shut it down," Strasburg said.
