Strasburg Dominant, Nats Produce Late to Top Cards
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Stephen Strasburg allowed two hits over six scoreless innings, striking out nine before being pulled Sunday as the Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3.

The NL East-leading Nationals took three of four from St. Louis and passed their 80-win total from last season.

Strasburg, rocked for seven runs last Tuesday at Miami, left with a 2-0 lead.

The 23-year-old Strasburg has struck out 195 in 156 1/3 innings this season. The Nationals have repeatedly stated they intend on shutting him down in his first full season since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2010.

The Nationals have been vague about an innings limit, but the team sat Jordan Zimmermann at 161 1/3 innings last season in a similar situation.
