WASHINGTON (AP) Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 and won his 13th straight decision despite a rocky beginning, and the Washington Nationals rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-6 on Friday night.

The Nationals scored in five straight innings after trailing 4-0 in the third. Wilson Ramos, Stephen Drew and Danny Espinosa homered off Jeremy Hellickson (4-4), and Daniel Murphy drove in three runs with a pair of doubles.

Tommy Joseph homered twice for the Phillies, who have lost 11 of 14.

Strasburg (10-0) labored early but finished strong, retiring the final 14 batters he faced after Joseph's two-run homer in the third. The right-hander allowed four runs, five hits with one walk over seven innings.

Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his 16th save.
