Strasburg outlasts Hamels as Nats top Phillies 6-1

 In a showdown of aces with disappointing records, Stephen Strasburg and Cole Hamels matched each other until the Washington Nationals scored five runs in the seventh inning of a 6-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. 

Strasburg (3-5) allowed five hits in eight innings, walked none and struck out a season-high nine, giving up a run in the eighth on his first big league balk. He lowered his ERA to 2.49 in a season when his team's offense has been lacking to the point manager Davey Johnson vowed to stop shaving until it improves.

Making his latest no-support start, Hamels (1-8) struck out six and allowed only three hits through six innings. Ryan Zimmerman's infield single started a rally that included a pair of errors and Steve Lombardozzi's two-run double. Hamels has lost five straight starts, has had only 20 runs of support scored all season when he's been in the game and hasn't pitched with a lead since April 7.
