  • Washington Nationals - PlayerWatch

    RHP Stephen Strasburg started on Tuesday for the Nationals against Arizona. He improved to 10-10 overall and 8-2 at home as he allowed just one run in eight innings in an 8-1 win. "He certainly could have gone out for the ninth, which is great," said Washington manager Matt Williams of Strasburg. "He stepped up." Strasburg leads the National League in strikeouts with 198 but had just four against Arizona. "They are going to put the ball in play," Strasburg said of Arizona. His performance was huge as the Nationals had played two 11-inning games in a row. Arizona manager Kirk Gibson was impressed with Strasburg, who pitched in Phoenix earlier this year. "He threw the ball good obviously, eight strong innings for those guys and went deep into the game, kept us off balance," Gibson said. "We got the run in the first inning, he settled right down. We had minimal opportunities off him. He started with his fastball early, his change was good tonight, breaking ball, he's got a good breaking ball -- he's much more polished than he used to be. Used to be more of a thrower, now he's got great stuff, electric, and he's certainly grown to become a really good pitcher as well."
