Strasburg shines as Nats extend run to 8

WASHINGTON (AP) After three straight walk-offs, the Washington Nationals went for a cakewalk instead.

Sure, winning late over and over again is a thrill, but it's not good for the blood pressure - not to mention the workload of the bullpen. Stephen Strasburg provided much of the salve Tuesday night, allowing one run and three hits over a season-high eight innings as the Nationals ran their winning streak to eight games with an 8-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

"I guess it's what the doctor ordered," Strasburg said.
