That culminated in a bases-loaded double by Lorenzo Cain, accounting for three of Strasburg's four earned runs, with the final earned run coming after he was pulled from the contest. However, there were still plenty of positives to take away from Strasburg's performance, as he generated 21 swinging strikes and held the dangerous Brewers lineup without a home run. Off to a strong start to the season from a skills perspective, Strasburg will draw another tough assignment in his next start at the Dodgers.

      Nationals' Stephen Strasburg: Strikes out nine in no-decision

      Stephen Strasburg allowed two runs on four hits with nine strikeouts and only one walk across seven innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Saturday.The only runs Strasburg yielded came via the home run, which has been an issue for him this season. He's tossed up six homers in six starts, giving him a career-high 1.4 HR/9 this year. However, the plethora of home runs Strasburg has allowed might not be a reason to be too concerned because his flyball percentage is actually lower than it was a year ago. The reason for the increased homers allowed is his HR/FB is about seven percent higher than it was in 2018, which could fall back down to earth in a larger sample size. Overall, Strasburg is 2-1 with a 3.82 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 37.2 innings this season. His next scheduled start is Thursday at home against the Cardinals.
