WASHINGTON (CBSMiami/AP) — The Miami Marlins fell victim to another dominant pitching performance by Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg on Wednesday night.
The right-hander struck out 14 in 7 1/3 shutout innings and extended his personal winning streak against Miami to 11 as the Nationals continued their midseason surge with a 3-1 victory.
“He was utilizing his fastball both sides of the plate, but his changeup was really good and he threw some good curveballs,” manager Dave Martinez said. “When he can throw the ball the way he wants, he is nasty.”
Brian Dozier and Matt Adams homered for Washington, which has won seven of its last eight and is 25-10 since May 24.
