Braves Best Strasburg

Stephen Strasburg falls to 2-2 after a 5-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves tonight.

Strasburg was in a scoreless duel with Braves veteran starter Tim Hudson into the 7th inning when the Braves got to him for four runs, three of which were earned.

In six and one third innings pitched, Strasburg gave up three runs on six hits. He struck out seven and walked two. In thirty one and two thirds innings pitched, Strasburg has fanned 48 batters while walking only seven. That's a strikeouts to walks ratio of nearly 7 to 1.

Although Strasburg has lost back to back to starts, the Nationals haven't scored any runs for him. Over his last three starts, the Nats have scored one run.

His next start takes place this Saturday afternoon at Nationals Park in D.C. against the New York Mets.
