Nats Journal: Slider-free Stephen Strasburg strikes out nine

The late-awaking Nationals’ offense prevented Stephen Strasburg from picking up his first win of the year, but in the Nationals’ 3-2 victory Sunday afternoon he pitched well enough to earn it. He solved his first-inning struggles, dazzled an excellent, contact-heavy Cardinals lineup and made just two glaring miscues. Read full article >>

Game 18: Yankees (10-7) at Rays (8-9)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi had said all weekend he would be giving Derek Jeter a day off in one of the four games on the turf here. Well, with tough righty Chris Archer going for the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday, this is that day. Girardi is sitting Jeter and will use him in Sunday afternoon's series finale against lefty Cesar Ramos. (Jeter has never faced Archer and is 1-for-3 versus Ramos.) Here is the lineup Girardi is sending out against Archer on Saturday: Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Brett Gardner, LF Carlos Beltran, DH Brian McCann, C Alfonso Soriano,...

Stephen Strasburg sticks to routine following rough start

During spring training, Stephen Strasburg vowed he would change his routine between starts, particularly following outings that turn disastrous. Last year, ragged starts would eat at Strasburg to the point that he would almost overhaul his mechanics in the bullpen, throwing gobs of pitches to perfect a problem that barely existed. When a thumbtack would […]

Angels power up win with Albert Pujols' 497th homer

Howie Kendrick blasts a pair of two-run homers as Jered Weaver regains form in an 11-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers.DETROIT -- An offensive barrage that featured a pair of two-run home runs from Howie Kendrick and a three-run shot from Albert Pujols — career homer No. 497 — was impressive and, it turns out, necessary for the Angels, who made things far too interesting by throwing an incendiary device by the name of Josh Wall into the proceedings Friday night.
