Stephen Strasburg strikes out nine in a dominating performance

Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL Stephen Strasburg!

The Nats’ ace was a bit rusty in his first start back from the disabled list, but there was no rust to be seen last night against the Rockies. He allowed one run in seven innings, giving up five hits walking no one and striking out nine.

The Nats are slowly turning things around. Strong starts from Jordan Zimmermann and Strasburg, some awakening offense from Ian Desmond and Adam LaRoche. And, quite possibly, a quicker return for Bryce Harper than many expected are all what the doctor ordered. Pair that with a Braves team that is struggling mightily and the NL East is quickly becoming a race again.

    Eating face???

    Don’t worry, Craig. Dan Haren is starting today. Now, he could have a good game. He has had good games. In the past. We can hope.
