After two rough starts to being the season, Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg (1-1) returned to form on Sunday against the Phillies, allowing one run on five hits in 7 1/3 innings to take the win. 

He struck out seven and walked two in the victory. 

The lone run scored off Strasburg came in the eighth inning via an RBI single from Freddy Galvis. 

Next up for Strasburg are the Marlins in Miami on Saturday.

Nationals' Yunel Escobar (groin) out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is not in the lineup Sunday for a second straight day while nursing a groin injury.

Escobar started each of the team's first 11 games at third base, filling in for the injured Anthony Rendon, before sitting out Saturday with the injury. He said before Sunday's game that he's feeling better and he'll practice on the field, per MLB.com. He also indicated that his MRI only showed groin inflammation, and that he hopes to be back in the lineup Tuesday, the Washington Post reports.

Danny Espinosa will draw a second straight start at third base against the Phillies. The Nationals are heavy home favorites (-225) Sunday.

Nationals activate Denard Span, option Michael Taylor
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Nationals activated center fielder Denard Span from the 15-day disabled list Sunday and optioned outfielder Michael Taylor to Triple-A Syracuse.

Span had to open the season on the disabled list after underdoing surgery on his core muscle in March. He was able to play in back-to-back games Thursday and Friday before taking Saturday off. He's atop the lineup for Nationals in Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Taylor performed well while filling in as the team's center fielder. He hit .271/.314/.500 with two home runs, eight RBI and two stolen bases in 48 at-bats. He'll return to Syracuse where he can play every day, but he'll likely be back with the Nationals the next time an outfielder is out for an extended period with an injury.

Nationals outfielder Denard Span may be activated Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Denard Span is back with the team after undergoing surgery on a right core muscle in March and may be activated Sunday, reports the Washington Post.

Manager Matt Williams said it's a possibility Span is activated Sunday, but it depends on how he feels. 

"I mean, physically like I said I'm fine," Span said. "I played two games in a row, a little fatigued, but the only way that's gonna get better is by playing games and getting back there every day. Early in season, I think everybody's got a little bit of fatigue, it takes time to get in the swing of the season, but I feel fine."

Span played in back-to-back games Thursday and Friday for Washington's minor league team in Hagerstown.
