Strasburg will have a chance to bounce back on Saturday afternoon, in the second game of the Nationals' big series against the division-rival Braves. Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg has allowed six earned runs in a game only three times in his career. Catcher Kurt Suzuki, who was behind the plate for that last start, said there isn't anything in particular Strasburg needs to improve upon. Strasburg didn't give up an earned run in his six innings of work, but Atlanta got all the offense it needed when Washington third baseman Ryan Zimmerman threw wildly to first base after fielding Justin Upton 's grounder and Gattis followed with his fourth home run in eight big league games. "He gave up some two-strike hits where it was a good job of hitting, where they just kind of fought it off and it landed in some green [grass], but overall, he's going to pitch how Stras pitches.
