VIERA, Fla. (AP) As he warmed up in the bullpen for his second spring training start, Stephen Strasburg felt strong. Perhaps a little too strong.
The right-hander overcame a shaky first inning and the Washington Nationals' offense came up big again in an 11-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.
Strasburg walked two and gave up an RBI single to his first three batters before settling down. He went three innings, allowing two hits while throwing 28 of 48 pitches for strikes.
