WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 while pitching three-hit ball for seven innings, earning his first win in a month as the Washington Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 Sunday. Strasburg (8-9) had been 0-3 in his previous five starts, losing his last three outings. He walked one and didnt permit a runner past second base. The NL East-leading Nationals split the four-game series after dropping the first two to the last-place Phillies. Denard Span had two hits, two steals, an RBI and scored a run for Washington. Cole Hamels (6-6) allowed an unearned run over seven innings. The left-hander gave up four hits and struck out six in his second consecutive start without an earned run. He has given up one earned run or fewer in nine of his last 13 starts. The Phillies were shut out for the second straight day and havent scored in 21 innings. Cody Asche got two hits for the Phillies, but also committed an error at third base on Jose Lobatons chopper that led to Washington scoring in the third inning. After dropping the ball, Asche grabbed it and his wide throw pulled first baseman Ryan Howard off the bag. Strasburg sacrificed and Span hit a looping single into right-centre. After Asches two-out double in the fifth, he appeared to be picked off on Lobatons throw from behind the plate to shortstop Ian Desmond. Second base umpire Tripp Gibsons safe call stood after a review of more than three minutes, prompting a chorus of boos from the home crowd.
