MIAMI (AP) -- Stephen Strasburg pitched six scoreless innings and drove in a run for the Washington Nationals in a 4-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Strasburg (10-4) allowed six hits and struck out seven. Steve Lombardozzi, Michael Morse, and Danny Espinosa also drove in a run for the Nationals. The Marlins were 1 for 13 with runners in scoring position as they were shut out for the ninth time this season. Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard loaded the bases in the ninth with no outs, but retired the next three batters. Omar Infante flew out to Bryce Harper in foul territory to end the game as Harper collided with second baseman Lombardozzi. Strasburg was able to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the third as he struck out Logan Morrison and got Hanley Ramirez to ground out. Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco (8-7) did not allow a hit until the fifth inning when Morse led off with a single to left. Strasburg and Lombardozzi followed with two-out RBI singles. It was the fifth RBI in 52 career at-bats for Strasburg, who also walked. Nolasco ran into trouble again in the sixth allowing three consecutive hits to begin the inning, including an RBI single by Morse. After Espinosa's sacrifice fly gave the Nationals a 4-0 lead, Nolasco was pulled. Nolasco went 5 1-3 innings, allowing four runs and six hits. NOTES: Nationals CF Roger Bernandina took a hit away from John Buck in the fourth inning with a diving catch to his right. ... Nationals SS Ian Desmond (left oblique) was held out of the lineup after aggravating the injury in his final at-bat on Saturday. He is considered day to day. ... Marlins RHP Juan Carlos Oviedo, formerly known as Leo Nunez, left his rehab appearance with Triple-A New Orleans due to tightness in his throwing arm. He is eligible to return from his suspension on July 23. ... Nationals RHP Edwin Jackson (5-4, 3.73 ERA) will face RHP Carlos Zambrano (4-7, 4.20 ERA) in Monday's series finale. Jackson allowed one earned run in 6 2-3 innings in a 3-1 loss to Miami on May 29.
