Strasburg strong, Nats blast Harvey

WASHINGTON — Steven Strasburg struck out 11, and the Nationals hit three of their season-high five home runs off Matt Harvey in a 7-4 victory over the Mets on Tuesday night.

Strasburg outdueled Harvey for the second time in six days. He has five games this season with at least 10 strikeouts and 26 over his seven-year career.

Harvey stumbled through a third straight ineffective start. The right-hander has yielded 16 earned runs and 31 hits in that span.

Ryan Zimmerman and Anthony Rendon hit consecutive solo shots to put Washington ahead in the fourth inning, and Daniel Murphy added a two-run drive off his former teammate in the fifth for a 5-1 lead.

The three homers allowed by Harvey tied a career high. After posting a 2.71 ERA last season, Harvey, a former first-round draft pick, hasn't gone more than six innings in any of his 10 starts and has an unsightly 6.08 ERA.

Ben Revere connected off Antonio Bastardo in the seventh and Wilson Ramos went deep against Jim Henderson in the eighth for Washington.

The Mets' four-game winning streak ended.
