Nationals 8, Phillies 4

WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg struck out 11 in seven innings as the Nationals kept won a rain-interrupted game. Strasburg had the Phillies flailing as he hit double digits in strikeouts for the 15th time in his career — and for the fourth time without issuing a walk. All but one of the strikeouts were swinging, including Marlon Byrd (95 mph fastball), Ryan Howard (95 mph fastball) and Domonic Brown (88 mph changeup).
