Dakota Hudson outdueled Stephen Strasburg in St. Louis on Monday, winning his 16th decision of the season in a 4–2 victory.
Hudson gave up five hits, two walks, and two runs in seven innings. He only struck out one batter but his command was excellent and he avoided the big home run. Only Anthony Rendon got him for a long ball and it was a solo job.
Strasburg, meanwhile, didn’t lose but he only finished five. Marcell Ozuna got him for a two-run homer in the first, which was all he surrendered. He walked four and finished with 99 pitches to get just 15 outs.
The Nationals’ bullpen isn’t good and so five out of Strasburg often won’t be enough.
Ozuna was at it again in the seventh against Hunter Strickland, driving in the two go-ahead runs with a double.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis’ bullpen, meanwhile, is coming together.
Carlos Martinez is healthy and throwing the ball with some electricity. He earned his 20th save in the victory.
Andrew Miller set him up with the first two outs in the ninth against Juan Soto and Asdrubal Cabrera.
The Cardinals stayed two games up on the Cubs, who beat the Reds. The Nationals, however, gave back more of their lead, which is now just a half-game over Chicago.

Free Washington Nationals vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: over.
Scherzer hasn’t been quite the guy we’ve been used to this season after suffering some injuries. Not only has be not been as effective, he isn’t going as deep into games, which leaves the Nationals vulnerable.
