Nats Swim away from the Fish, 4--0.

The Nats scored four runs in the 6th inning while the their pitching staff shut out the Florida Marlins for a 4 to nothing victory. The victory snapped a two game losing skid; the Nats improve to 40-50 and still are in last place of the NL East.


Stephen Strasburg made it work against the Marlins last night by pitching six shut innings while giving up no runs. Strasburg also added 7 strike outs. The bullpen of Drew Storen and Matt Capps pitched a combine 3 innings of no run relief to complete the shut out of the Marlins.


The Nats scored 4 runs on 8 hits. Adam Dunn led the Nats with two hits. Josh Willingham had 3 RBI with a 3 run double in the 6th inning.

  1. Every Nats fan should hold his breath for Strasburg. Let's hope management has the smarts not to pitch him even one more inning this season.
