WASHINGTON (AP) - Stephen Strasburg recovered from another rough first inning to pitch into the eighth, Wilson Ramos produced a go-ahead sacrifice fly in his first game since opening day, and the Washington Nationals edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Wednesday.
After waiting through a rain delay of more than 1½ hours to throw his first pitch, Strasburg (3-2) did what he's done all season: struggled to get the first three outs, then been fairly dominant. This time, he gave up four consecutive singles, including run-scoring hits by Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig, during a 28-pitch first as Los Angeles went ahead 2-0.
Then Strasburg got into a groove, while his teammates scored three runs off former Nationals pitcher Dan Haren (4-1).
