Stephen Strasburg’s 16-game win streak snapped by Dodgers in Nationals’ loss

- The Washington Times

The loss snapped Strasburg’s 16-game winning streak — the second-longest in Washington baseball history behind Firpo Marberry’s 17 in in 1930-31 with the Senators. The Nationals’ $175 million man started this season 13-0 with a 2.51 earned-run average — a streak manager Dusty Baker called “one of the best I’ve ever seen, I think.”
