|2014 Regular Season|
Strasburg struck out nine and allowed two runs on four hits. The nine strikeouts were his most in six starts since June 4. He'll try to beat the lowly Phils next weekend.
Strasburg (7-6, 3.53 ERA) tied his career high by allowing seven earned runs in 4 2-3 innings in a 9-2 loss in Milwaukee on June. He was 0-2 with a 7.27 ERA over his last three outings. On Tuesday night, he struck out eight and walked one while giving up one run. The Rockies didn't get a runner past second until DJ LeMahieu's homer in the eighth.
The seven runs matched a career worst for Strasburg, who is 0-2 with a 7.27 ERA over his last three games.
Strasburg allowed seven hits and two walks over 7 1-3 innings to earn the win. He is 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA in his last four starts.
Strasburg yielded seven hits over seven shutout innings while striking out 11 batters. His 53 strikeouts lead the majors.
Strasburg allowed six runs and eight hits in four innings. He fell to 2-3 at Marlins Park with an ERA of 8.61. His next start is versus the Cards.
Strasburg (1-1) got 14 consecutive outs in one stretch and allowed only three hits, including Marcell Ozuna's homer in the seventh. The right-hander's lone walk was to the last batter he faced. Strasburg lasted 4 1-3 innings in his previous start, a 6-2 loss to Atlanta on Sunday, and he entered Thursday 0-1 with a 6.10 ERA. But with the temperature 67 degrees at the unusual 4:05 p.m. start, and shadows creeping across the diamond, he was much better against Miami, mixing a 95-96 mph fastball with a seemingly unhittable changeup.
If you own Strasburg, you're going to have a leg up in the strikeouts category more often than not. He fanned an average of 9.39 batters per nine innings last season.
Williams picked Strasburg in part because "of his experience. He's done it before ... And he's earned it." Williams says Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann will follow in the rotation. Doug Fister is set to be the fourth starter if he can get ready in time after being sidelined by elbow inflammation.
The Washington Nationals right-hander focused much of his session on his timing out of the stretch, hoping baserunners will no longer consider him an easy mark when eyeing a steal of second.
