Stephen Strasburg left after only four innings Tuesday, matching the second-shortest appearance of his 25-start career, and San Diego's Will Venable had four hits, while John Baker delivered three hits and three RBIs, leading the Padres to a 6-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.
Anthony Bass (2-4) - making his 10th start in the majors - tied his longest outing by going eight innings. He allowed five hits and one run - on Bryce Harper's homer to right-center, the 19-year-old outfielder's second consecutive game with a solo shot. Bass didn't allow a hit until Ian Desmond's single in the fourth.
Bass struck out seven and walked one before giving way to reliever Andrew Cashner for the ninth. Cashner struck out Harper swinging at a 101 mph pitch to end it.
