MIAMI —Pitching in air conditioning, Stephen Strasburg nonetheless soaked his
jersey with perspiration after only a couple of innings. Wholesale NFL

. The first-place Washington Nationals have
reason to start sweating. Strasburg gave up a career-high seven runs in five
innings Tuesday night and the Nationals losing streak reached five games when
they were beaten by Ricky Nolasco and the last-place Miami Marlins 9-0. “Im sure
theres not a pitcher in the history of baseball who has gone out there and done
it every single time,” Strasburg said. “I struggled for pretty much the whole
game. Its a learning experience for me.” Nolasco (10-12) allowed five hits in
his third career shutout and eighth complete game. The shutout was the first for
the Marlins at their new ballpark. The Nationals began the night with baseballs
best record, but theyre saddled with a losing streak that matches their season
high. “Weve played really good 90 per cent of the year,” manager Davey Johnson
said. “Were in a rough spot here. That makes the metal hotter. The tougher it
gets, the stronger you get, so well be fine.” Strasburg (15-6) came into the
game with a streak of 27 consecutive scoreless innings against Miami in five
starts since last September. But he gave up a homer to his second batter,
Justin Ruggiano, and trailed 5-0 by the third inning. Strasburg shrugged off the
significance of the drenched jersey, but Johnson said it was telling. “He was
fighting himself a little bit,” the manager said. “He gave up more hits than hes
used to giving up. ... Hes such a perfectionist, when he gives up a hit hes
going to be upset. Thats part of the maturation process for a young pitcher.”
Strasburg is expected to make perhaps four more starts before the Nationals shut
him down for the year to protect his surgically repaired elbow. The drubbing
doesnt change that plan, Johnson said. Strasburg said the Marlins adjusted to
his inside fastball and didnt try to hit the ball the other way. “They had a
little different approach this time, and I didnt make the adjustment,” he said.
“I just kept trying to do the same thing.” The young right-hander, who had won
his past four starts, allowed five earned runs and gave up nine hits to match a
career high. He struck out only three but leads the NL with 186 strikeouts.
Nolasco struck out five, walked none and lowered his ERA to 4.78. He retired 14
in a row and held the Nationals hitless until Kurt Suzuki singled with two outs
in the fifth. The complete game was his second in the past three starts.
“Anytime youre rolling like that, you want to finish it off,” Nolasco said.
Ruggiano had a career-high four hits in four at-bats and drove in two runs,
while Giancarlo Stanton added three hits and three RBIs. Seven of the Marlins
runs scored with two outs, and they totalled 13 hits. Ian Desmond (hamstring)
and Michael Morse (hand), both sidelined last weekend with injuries, returned to
the Nationals lineup but went hitless. “The good news about that one,” Johnson
said, “is it was only 2 1/2 hours.” The Marlins scored twice off Strasburg in
the first inning. Ruggiano hit his 13th home run. Carlos Lee doubled with two
outs, then came home on a broken-bat single by Stanton. Miami added three runs
in the third. Bryan Petersen led off with a single, stole second, took third on
a groundout and came home when second baseman Danny Espinosa mishandled a
grounder for an error. Greg Dobbs two-out single brought home two unearned runs
to make it 5-0. Ruggiano had a two-out RBI single against Strasburg in the
fourth. “Hes the toughest Ive faced in a game as far as overall stuff,” Ruggiano
said. “Hopefully hes tipping his cap to us, because I think we all had a good
approach to him.” Donovan Solano drove in the final run against Strasburg,
extending his hitting streak to 11 games with a two-out RBI single in the fifth
that made it 7-0. “Any team wants to come out and make a name for themselves off
Stephen Strasburg,” Desmond said. “The guy is one of the best pitchers in the
game, and theyre not just going to lay down for him.” NOTES: Nolasco had been
0-2 with a 6.35 ERA in his two previous starts this year against Washington. ...
Jayson Werth went hitless and is 4 for 25 (.160) against Nolasco. ... The
