Default Nationals Stephen Strasburg has been nea

Stephen Strasburg is doing more than just winning baseball games.The 27-year-old right-hander is dominating the competition, and that was once again quiteapparent Friday night when he ran his record to 13-0 with Washington's5-1 win over the Pirates at Nationals Park.MORE: Braves' Freddie Freeman has cancerous mole removed Strasburg carried a no-hitter into the fifthbefore Starling Marte led off with a single. He stole second Starling Marte Jersey and later scored on a broken-bat single by Jordy Mercer.And thank you for playing, Pirates. Strasburg shut down the Pirates the rest of the way. He went eight innings, giving up only that one run, with three hitsand two walks. He struck out six.So Strasburg continues his pursuit of history. Only seven MLB pitchers since 1913 havestarted a season 13-0; coincidentally, the most recent was Strasburg's Nats teammate, Max Scherzer, who started 13-0 with the Tigers Francisco Cervelli Womens Cool Base Jersey in 2013, the only other pitcher to do so in the past 30 years. Rube Marquard set the all-time MLB markwith a 19-0 start in 1912.It almost defies belief thatStrasburg seems to be getting even better as the season goes along. In Strasburg's past four starts, he has an 0.96 ERA. He's given up only 11 hits in 28 2/3 innings in that span.Strasburg certainly had help in the field against the Pirates.In the fourth inning, shortstop Danny Espinosa made two great plays on balls deep in the hole, and centerfielder Michael Taylor ran down a sinking liner to rob David Freese of a hit. Third baseman Anthony Rendon made a spectacular over-the-shoulder catch of a fifth-inning foul pop down the left-field line.Hmm, a great defense, Pirates Cool Base Custom Black Jersey and a pitcher who is literally unbeatable at least for the moment. That's could be potent combination come October.Player of the Day Tommy Pham, Cardinals: The Cards outfielder homered twice, drove in four runsand had three hits in four at-bats in a7-6 lo s to the Marlins. Pham hasmade the most of limited playing time (49 at-bats) this year, with a .996OPS.Three Things to Know Dylan Bundy, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, will make his first careerstart Sunday for the Orioles against the Rays at Tropicana Field. Bundy, who has battled multiple injuriesin recent years, caught the attention of manager Buck Showalter when he struck out all seven batters he faced in his last outing on July 6 against theDodgers. The 23-year-old right-hander has a 3.08 ERA in 39 innings pitched this year. After George Springer led off Houston's 7-3 win over the Mariners with a home run, the Astros have an MLB-high 10 leadoff home runsthis year, with sixby Jos Altuveand fourby Springer Mets Chad Kuhl Jersey pitcherBartolo Colon took a perfect game into the fifth inning against the PhilliesbeforeCameron Rupp grounded a one-out singleto break it up. The right-hander went 5 2/3 innings and gave up no earned runs in the 5-3 victory to runhis record to 8-4.What's Next Red Sox (50-38) at Yankees(44-45), 4:05 p.m. ET: The Red Sox started the second half of the season Friday nightwhere they left off the first, beating the Yankees fortheir fifthstraight victory. Red Sox left-handerEduardo Rogriguez, whohas struggled mightily in six starts this season (8.59 ERA, 1.74 WHIP), will try Saturday to start the second half of the season right.The Yankees, who are under .500 after All-Star break for the first time since 1995, will counter with CC Sabathia Gerrit Cole Jersey (5-6, 3.77 ERA).Marlins (48-41) at Cardinals (46-43), 8:15 p.m. ET: The Marlins have been a pleasant surprise this year, battling the Mets for second in the NL East and firmly in the chase for a wild-card berth. They'll send Tom Koehler (6-7, 4.50 ERA)to the mound to face Adam Wainwright, who is 8-5 with a 4.49 ERA in his first season back from an Achilles injury.
