Strasburg pitched seven solid innings against the Marlins Tuesday, allowing just one run on four hits and two walks while striking out four batters, but still picked up his ninth loss (7-9) of the year.
Strasburg was a tough-luck loser Tuesday, as he pitched well enough to win. Prior to Tuesday, Strasburg was in a bit of a rut, allowing 10 runs in his previous three starts (spanning 18 innings). Still, with a 3.55 ERA and an outstanding 167:32 K:BB ratio, Strasburg continues to be a high-end option. He will next take the mound Sunday at home against the Phillies.
