Strasburg (2-1) struck out 11 and gave up just two hits and two walks over eight scoreless innings in a win over the Marlins on Sunday.
Strasburg cruised through Miami with 20 swinging strikes and 23 called strikes. The Marlins are not the toughest matchup, but this was an encouraging outing after the 30-year-old gave up five home runs over his last two starts. The right-hander, who has a 4.11 ERA over five starts this season, will make his next start Saturday against the Padres.
Strasburg (1-1) took the loss against the Giants on Tuesday by giving up four runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter.
Strasburg allowed only two hits through the first four frames but then served up three home runs during the fifth and sixth innings to take his first loss of the year. The 30-year-old has now given up five homers and 10 total runs across his last two starts. Strasburg will carry a 5.56 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 28:7 K:BB into Sunday's matchup at Miami.
Strasburg gave up six runs on six hits and four walks across four innings during Tuesday's win over the Phillies. He recorded three strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.
Strasburg ran into trouble during the third inning as he gave up a leadoff homer to Maikel Franco and then issued two walks before serving up a three-run shot to Bryce Harper. The 30-year-old allowed two runs on two hits and two walks the following inning, leading to his early exit. Strasburg will look for a rebound effort next Tuesday against the Giants.
Strasburg (1-0) posted 6.2 shutout innings, allowing only three hits and one walk while striking out nine in a win against the Mets on Thursday.
The 30-year-old took a no-hitter into the fifth inning. Noah Syndergaard actually bested Strasburg in that department, lasting until the sixth inning without giving up a hit, but the Nationals lineup did eventually get to Syndergaard while the Mets never really cracked Strasburg. The Nationals right-hander left with two runners aboard and two outs in the seventh, and reliever Matt Grace cleaned up the frame with a strikeout. Strasburg is 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 12.2 innings this season. His next start will likely be against the Phillies.
