WASHINGTON (AP) - Stephen Strasburg bounced back from his worst outing of the season with 7 2-3 dominant innings, and Jayson Werth had two doubles and three RBIs in the Washington Nationals' 7-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Anthony Rendon added a two-run double for Washington, which has won four straight.

Strasburg (7-6) tied his career high by allowing seven earned runs in 4 2-3 innings in his last start, and was 0-2 with a 7.27 ERA over his last three.
