Nationals

MLB

Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg threw his curveball 28% of the time, his highest rate in the last 2 seasons. The curveball was his putaway pitch. Braves hitters were 0-10 with 8 K vs it; he got as many outs with his curveball (10) as he did in his previous 4 starts combined. The 8 curveball strikeouts were 1 shy of his career high, done in 2013 against the Phillies and 2015 against the Mets (the Phillies game is the only other one in which opposing hitters went 0-10 against his curve).
