Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.
Tonight’s game was a total clunker, as Stephen Strasburg allowed six runs in four innings and Craig Stammen allowed five more the next inning as the Washington Nationals (8-6) were blown out by the Miami Marlins (6-9), 11-2.
Strasburg (L, 1-2) looked bad right from the starting gun. He allowed four hits and three runs in the first inning, as...
MIAMI (AP) Giancarlo Stanton tied a career high with five RBIs, including a three-run homer off Stephen Strasburg, and the Miami Marlins broke an eight-game losing streak by beating the Washington Nationals 11-2 Tuesday night.
MIAMI (AP) -- Giancarlo Stanton tied a career high with five RBIs, including a three-run homer off Stephen Strasburg, and the Miami Marlins broke an eight-game losing streak by beating the Washington Nationals 11-2 Tuesday night.
Strasburg (1-2) endured another rough outing in Miami, allowing six runs and eight hits in four innings. He fell to 2-3 at Marlins Park with an ERA of 8...

It took a start against the reeling Miami Marlins to finally give Stephen Strasburg something positive to build on.
Looking for a second straight strong outing against them, the right-hander tries to help the visiting Washington Nationals hand Miami a ninth consecutive defeat Tuesday night.

There's no place like home, or so the Miami Marlins hope.
A 5-2 start to the 2014 season quickly turned sour on a winless six-game roadtrip to Washington and Philadelphia.
Having dropped seven in a row, the last-place Marlins (5-8) once again face the second-place Nationals (7-5), who were swept by the Braves this weekend.
The first two pitching matchups will be the same, though...

The 2014 season could not have started out worse for the New York Mets bullpen. Having knocked around Stephen Strasburg of the Washington Nationals, the Mets were poised to add to their league-leading Opening Day record before blowing not one but two saves. The Nationals would prevail in ten innings en route to a three game sweep.
In the season opener, the Mets bullpen allowed an...
Stephen Strasburg entered Thursday’s matinee against the Marlins with a 6.10 ERA after two starts, and just a day after the Nationals’ bullpen was needed for over seven innings. He was also facing a Marlins team who, even in their lowest moments, seem to give him trouble.
Fortunately for the Nationals - as they head into a road series against the Braves - Strasburg was exceptionally...
Stephen Strasburg had been struggling somewhat early this season, entering today’s game with an 0-1 record and a 6.10 ERA after two lackluster starts. Ian Desmond was dealing with a slow start too, hitting .226/.242/.452 nine games into the season. But it turns out that the Miami Marlins’ (5-5) offense and bullpen, respectively, were all they needed to get back on track. Strasburg...
WASHINGTON -- Annie sang in the Tony Award-winning musical about the promise of tomorrow.
The beauty of baseball season is that it resembles a marathon rather than a sprint, where one must master resiliency for quick turnarounds.
After jumping out to a 5-2 start -- one of the best in club history -- the Marlins flew to Washington earlier this week riding momentum off strong pitching...
Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg struck out 12 batters on Thursday earning a win over the Miami Marlins.
Strasburg has responded to the critics who doubted his first two starts of the season. He went 6 2/3 innings of work allowing one run on three hits and a walk. The Marlins lone run came in the form of a solo home run off the bat of Marcell Ozuna.
We are only nine games into the 2014 season and the Washington Nationals just completed their second NL East series sweep. After opening the season with a three game sweep of the New York Mets, the Nationals, behind Stephen Strasburg and home runs by Jayson Werth and Ian Desmond, overpowered the Marlins 7-1 and finished the sweep.
Stephen Strasburg put together a gem of a start...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Stephen Strasburg struck out 12 in 6 2-3 innings on a day Washington really needed to rest its relievers, and Jayson Werth and Ian Desmond homered, leading the Nationals past the Miami Marlins 7-1 Thursday for a three-game sweep.
Strasburg (1-1) got 14 consecutive outs in one stretch and allowed only three hits, including Marcell Ozuna's homer in the seventh...
Marcell Ozuna hit a solo home run in the seventh inning, but that turned out to be the only run the Marlins would muster against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals, as they are swept in three games in Washington.

Yesterday, we began taking a look at National League only starting pitching prospects. The general idea was to split the starters into three tiers based on their Fair Run Averages (FRA) from the previous season. Pitchers with FRAs under 4.00 were in the first tier. Today, we will look at pitchers with FRAs between 4.00 and 4.50. The general idea is that pitchers...
It is inarguably a great thrill to bear witness to the major-league debut of a top pitching prospect. It felt, for example, like the nation set aside whatever else it was doing to watch Stephen Strasburg blaze his way through the Pittsburgh Pirates on ESPN. You hear about the makeup and you hear about the […]

Stephen Strasburg was battered in the Washington Nationals’ 6-2 loss versus the Atlanta Braves on Saturday. The 25-year-old Strasburg (8-9, 3.00 ERA), who underwent arthroscopic surgery in October to remove bone chips from his right elbow, allowed eight hits, three walks and three earned runs in 4 1-3 innings. Despite struggling this weekend, Strasburg’s a 2012 All-Star and Silver...
Saturday was another pretty good day with only five incorrect out of fifteen. There were, of course, some surprises. I don't know what to make of Francisco Liriano and Stephen Strasburg not having success in their outings. The Red Sox and Yankees both losing was a surprise, the former for Clay Buchholz not pitching well and the latter for leaving ten men on base and scoring...
The Braves would never say it publicly, and neither would the Nationals and Stephen Strasburg. But for now, the team from Georgia clearly has the upper hand on the team from the nation’s capital and particularly its marquee pitcher.
The Braves beat the Nationals and Strasburg again Saturday, knocking him out with four consecutive singles in a four-run fifth inning and cruising...
Denard Span struck out to end the ninth inning, and all that could be heard were the sing-songy chants of Braves fans ringing through the mostly-empty stadium on a chilly Saturday night.
The Washington Nationals had again suffered a disappointing loss to the Atlanta Braves, losing not only the game, 6-2, but also the series and the opportunity to make the season-opening statement...
Taking three cuts as the Braves chased Stephen Strasburg en route to a 6-2 win over the Nationals on Saturday night in Washington, D.C.
1. Teheran continues to impress against Nationals
He did it with his bat, twice.
There in lies one of the more underrated parts of Julio Teheran's game, as he delivered an RBI single in the fourth inning. The past two seasons, only Zack Greinke...
