After a balky beginning, Strasburg and Nationals settle in to defeat Marlins
Question of the Day
MIAMI — Stephen Strasburg overcame a shaky start to earn his first victory in nearly a month.
“I knew if I kept the game close we could bust it open,” Strasburg said.
Strasburg (7-9) struck out seven and also hit a batter, threw a wild pitch and had two run-scoring balks. It was his first win since Aug. 11 against Philadelphia.
“Stras should have been able to go further but he was a little out of sorts today,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said.
Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his 39th save in 45 chances.
“I like the way our lineup is swinging the bat,” Johnson said.
Justin Ruggiano had three of the Marlins’ six hits.
Jacob Turner (3-6) allowed five runs in four innings.
“We know we have to pitch and play almost perfect to win and we weren’t able to do that,” Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.
Ramos hit a solo homer in the second.
“I got a fast ball and I was able to get all of it,” Ramos said.
The Marlins responded in the bottom half with three runs as Strasburg was erratic.
