Marlins Vs. Nationals: Stephen Strasburg Silents Miami Bats In 4-1 Loss

Between his pitching and hitting, Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg single-handedly defeated the Miaimi Marlins on Sunday, with Washington winning 4-1.

Strasburg shut the Marlins out over six innings, holding Miami to just three hits while striking out six hitters.

But it just wasn't on the mound where Strasburg hurt the Marlins. His two-run single in the second inning was all the Nationals would need to win. Adam LaRoche's two-run single later in the inning brought the score to 4-0. The Marlins would score a run on a Greg Dobbs double in the seventh, but would have no further rally.

Ricky Nolasco went six innings allowing four runs on eight hits while walking four. His record on the season fell to 8-11.
