Analysis: It was one of his stronger outings of the season, surrendering an unearned run and three hits while striking out eight in seven innings. He needed it after getting roughed up for seven earned runs in his previous start.
Aug. 4 3:19 PM PT4:19 PM MT5:19 PM CT6:19 PM ET18:19 ET22:19 GMT6:19 3:19 PM MST5:19 PM EST5:49 PM VEN2:19 UAE (+1)5:19 PM CT-Strasburg won for the first time in six outings Sunday, striking out 10 over seven innings while yielding three hits.

On Tuesday night, he struck out eight and walked one while giving up one run. The Rockies didn't get a runner past second until DJ LeMahieu's homer in the eighth.
June 26 3:28 PM PT4:28 PM MT5:28 PM CT6:28 PM ET18:28 ET22:28 GMT6:28 3:28 PM MST5:28 PM EST5:58 PM VEN2:28 UAE (+1)5:28 PM CT-Strasburg was shelled for seven runs and eight hits over just 4 2-3 innings in Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee.

May 8 12:10 PM PT1:10 PM MT2:10 PM CT3:10 PM ET15:10 ET19:10 GMT3:10 12:10 PM MST2:10 PM EST2:40 PM VEN23:10 UAE2:10 PM CT-Strasburg allowed two runs in the first inning before settling down in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Dodgers.
Analysis: Strasburg allowed seven hits and two walks over 7 1-3 innings to earn the win. He is 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA in his last four starts.
Apr. 26 12:21 PM PT1:21 PM MT2:21 PM CT3:21 PM ET15:21 ET19:21 GMT3:21 12:21 PM MST2:21 PM EST2:51 PM VEN23:21 UAE2:21 PM CT-Strasburg improved to 2-2 on Friday against San Diego with a stellar performance.
Analysis: Strasburg yielded seven hits over seven shutout innings while striking out 11 batters. His 53 strikeouts lead the majors.
Apr. 15 8:56 PM PT9:56 PM MT10:56 PM CT11:56 PM ET23:56 ET3:56 GMT11:56 8:56 PM MST10:56 PM EST11:26 PM VEN7:56 UAE (+1)10:56 PM CT-Strasburg suffered another dismal night in Miami on Tuesday.
Analysis: Strasburg allowed six runs and eight hits in four innings. He fell to 2-3 at Marlins Park with an ERA of 8.61. His next start is versus the Cards.
Apr. 11 3:14 PM PT4:14 PM MT5:14 PM CT6:14 PM ET18:14 ET22:14 GMT6:14 3:14 PM MST5:14 PM EST5:44 PM VEN2:14 UAE (+1)5:14 PM CT-Strasburg struck out 12 in 6 2-3 innings - on a day Washington really needed to rest its relievers - and led the Nationals past the Miami Marlins 7-1 on Thursday for a three-game sweep.
Analysis: Strasburg (1-1) got 14 consecutive outs in one stretch and allowed only three hits, including Marcell Ozuna's homer in the seventh. The right-hander's lone walk was to the last batter he faced. Strasburg lasted 4 1-3 innings in his previous start, a 6-2 loss to Atlanta on Sunday, and he entered Thursday 0-1 with a 6.10 ERA. But with the temperature 67 degrees at the unusual 4:05 p.m. start, and shadows creeping across the diamond, he was much better against Miami, mixing a 95-96 mph fastball with a seemingly unhittable changeup.
Apr. 1 3:22 PM PT4:22 PM MT5:22 PM CT6:22 PM ET18:22 ET22:22 GMT6:22 3:22 PM MST5:22 PM EST5:52 PM VEN2:22 UAE (+1)5:22 PM CT-Strasburg struck out 10 but was otherwise fairly pedestrian in Monday's win over the Mets, allowing four runs and four hits in five innings.
Analysis: If you own Strasburg, you're going to have a leg up in the strikeouts category more often than not. He fanned an average of 9.39 batters per nine innings last season.
Mar. 19 7:10 PM PT8:10 PM MT9:10 PM CT10:10 PM ET22:10 ET2:10 GMT10:10 7:10 PM MST9:10 PM EST9:40 PM VEN6:10 UAE (+1)8:10 PM CT-Washington manager Matt Williams said Strasburg will make his third straight opening-day start for the Nationals.
Analysis: Williams picked Strasburg in part because "of his experience. He's done it before ... And he's earned it." Williams says Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann will follow in the rotation. Doug Fister is set to be the fourth starter if he can get ready in time after being sidelined by elbow inflammation.
Feb. 16 12:33 PM PT1:33 PM MT2:33 PM CT3:33 PM ET15:33 ET20:33 GMT4:33 1:33 PM MST3:33 PM EST4:03 PM VEN0:33 UAE (+1)2:33 PM CT-Strasburg threw his first formal bullpen session of spring training Sunday. He said afterward his arm is doing "great" after offseason surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow.
Analysis: The Washington Nationals right-hander focused much of his session on his timing out of the stretch, hoping baserunners will no longer consider him an easy mark when eyeing a steal of second.
