Strasburg strikes out 13 as Bucs can’t complete sweep

Published on May 10, 2012 by in Game Recaps

Final: Nationals 4, Pirates 2

WP: Stephen Strasburg (3-0, 1.64 ERA)
LP: Kevin Correia (1-3, 3.47 ERA)
SV: Henry Rodriguez (7, 2.63 ERA)

The last time the Pirates face Strasburg, it was in his ML debut in front of a national audience. He dominated them. It was pretty much a lot of the same this time around. Over six innings, Strasburg gave up two runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out 13 Pirates.

The Pirates were able to jump out to a 2-0 lead in the 4th thanks to RBI singles by Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker.

Kevin Correia cruised through five innings without giving up a run, but gave up three runs on two home runs before recording an out in the 6th that gave the Nats the lead for good.
