Nationals Vs. Marlins: Stephen Strasburg Shuts Down Miami In 4-0 Loss

The Miami Marlins became the latest victim of Stephen Strasburg's stellar 2012 campaign, as the phenom struck out seven batters in six innings en route to a 4-0 win by the Washington Nationals on Sunday.

Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco began the afternoon hot, throwing four no-hit innings to begin the game and retiring 12 of the first 13 batters. The Nationals, however, would break the game open with a pair of runs in both the fifth and sixth innings. Nolascos final line was allowing four earned runs in 5.1 innings on six hits while striking out two batters.

The Marlins were able to muster seven hits on offense despite the shutout, however Greg Dobbs was the only with two hits going 2-for-4. Emilio Bonifacio had the only extra base hit of the game for the Marlins with a double, but he was unable to score.

The two teams will go at it Monday night in the conclusion of the four game series.
