There was a brave effort,

CLEVELAND -- Stephen Strasburgs losing streak was short lived. Johnny Bucyk Jersey .Washingtons ace easily shut down Cleveland for seven innings and bounced back from his only loss this season, leading the Nationals to a 4-1 win over the Indians on Wednesday.Strasburg (14-1) began the season with 13 straight wins before he was beaten by the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 21. The powerful right-hander made the most of his next outing by shaking off the one blemish on his resume this season and holding the Indians to three hits as the Nationals recovered after blowing a two-run lead in the ninth and losing on Tuesday night.This is what you want your big boys to do, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said of Strasburg, now 20-3 since Aug. 8.Washington rookie Trea Turner drove in three runs and Daniel Murphy hit his 20th homer off Carlos Carrasco (7-4), who nearly matched Strasburg but was done in by one bad inning.Nationals reliever Blake Treinen stopped Clevelands threat in the ninth, getting a game-ending double play for his first major league save.Strasburg had little trouble handling the AL Central-leading Indians, who came in with the majors best record since June 1 but couldnt generate enough offense against the Nationals $175 million man. He was in control from the outset and made Washingtons 2-0 lead over the first five innings feel like the score was 10-0.Strasburg walked one and struck out seven.He has a lot of weapons, Indians manager Terry Francona said. He can throw the ball by you, a fastball on both sides of the plate. He has a slider, change. Hes got everything and his fastball has a ton of ride or finish, however you want to put it. His delivery. Its impressive.After Tuesdays rough loss, the Nationals needed a spark. Strasburg gave them one.A lot of times you respond to the guy whos pitching on the mound, Baker said. The game starts and stops with him having the ball in his hand.Strasburg understands whats expected of him whenever he takes the mound.I try to do that every time if were winning or if were losing, he said. All I can do is what I can on the day I pitch. Its a long season so Im going to keep grinding.The Indians failed to turn a double play in the second and it cost Carrasco, who didnt help himself with three walks in the inning.After he walked the first two batters, Carrasco got Ryan Zimmerman to hit a hard grounder to shortstop Francisco Lindor, whose throw to second was dropped by Jason Kipnis on the transfer. With two outs, Ben Revere battled Carrasco for 13 pitches before walking and Turner made the right-hander pay for his inability to throw strikes by lining a two-run single to left.Strasburg took it from there.He was never in real trouble and on the two occasions the Indians got a runner to third, Strasburg got the out he needed.Jose Ramirez, who had two hits and reached base all three times up against Strasburg, was on third in the second when Strasburg struck out Rajai Davis to end the inning, blowing him away with a 97 mph fastball.Ramirez got to third again with two outs in the fourth after third baseman Anthony Rendons throwing error. This time, Strasburg retired Davis on a slow roller to third.Murphy, the NLs leading hitter, extended his hitting streak to 13 games with his towering shot off Carrasco to make it 3-0. Turners broken-bat RBI single in the seventh put the Nationals up by four.STREAKINGJayson Werths leadoff walk in the second extended his streak of reaching base to 30 games -- a career-high and the longest current run in the majors. ... Bryce Harper went 0 for 4 and is hitless in his last 17 at-bats. Hes batting only .177 (14 of 79) in July.TRAINERS ROOMNationals: Bothered by vertigo-like symptoms for the past week, infielder Stephen Drew was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Drew has played just once in the past seven games because of an undiagnosed illness, and the team sent him back to Washington for further tests. Drew has been a valuable pinch hitter this season, connecting for three homers off the bench.UP NEXTIndians: Several current and former players, along with Francona, will golf in a charity outing before starting a three-game series on Friday against the Oakland Athletics. RHP Trevor Bauer (7-4) will start the opener against As right-hander Kendall Graveman (7-6).Nationals: Washington flies to the West Coast to open a four-game series in San Francisco. Tanner Roark (9-6) will pitch the opener against Giants ace Johnny Cueto (13-2). Milan Lucic Bruins Jersey .

Yorkshire 215 for 6 (Willey 74) beat Northamptonshire 140 by 75 runs (Duckett 51, Crook 43) Scorecard A bruising knock of 74 by David Willey against his former club was largely responsible for Yorkshire Vikings beating North Group leaders, Northants Steelbacks, by 75 runs at Headingley to boost their chances of reaching the quarter-final stages of the NatWest T20 Blast.Chasing a formidable target of 216, Steelbacks showed plenty of aggression early on but then collapsed to 140 all out in 15.2 overs, Richard Levi being unable to bat after injuring himself while taking a catch.Now the two sides meet with everything to play for in the final match in the group stages at Wantage Road next Friday.For the second time in three days, Yorkshire managed to roar past the 200 mark after winning the toss and batting first and this time in was Willey who inflicted most of the damage with his blistering 74 using up just 46 deliveries with five fours and six sixes.Adam Lyth on this occasion went early to a well-judged catch by Seekkuge Prasanna off the nippy Richard Gleeson but the skipper, Alex Lees, then joined Willey in the major partnership of the innings, the second wicket pair adding 106 together in ten overs.Lees got things moving by striking Gleeson for three consecutive boundaries as 43 came off the Powerplay overs. Willey joined in the spree, taking sixes off Prasanna and Cobb before blasting Graeme White for two sixes and a four, also off successive deliveries.Willeys first 50 in any domestic cricket for Yorkshire came off 31 balls with three fours and four sixes but the stand ended when Lees was brilliantly caught right-handed by Richard Levi at backward point for 35 from 27 balls with five fours, the fielder injuring himself in the proceess. Brandon Carlo Bruins Jersey. Former Yorkshire paceman Moin Ashraf had Willey caught in the deep to make it 137 for 3 in the 14th over and, with the bit between their teeth, the Vikings kept the runs flowing, Jack Leaning smacking 30 off 14 balls with three fours and two sixes while Tim Bresnan was even more punishing near the end, his unbeaten 26 taking nine deliveries off which he smashed three sixes.Once again, Australian, Travis Head, stayed calmly in control and was not out until the final over when he was bowled by Ashraf for 22 from 17 balls with two sixes.Steelbacks showed plenty of pluck when they began their reply, Josh Cobb straight driving Bresnan for six before he gave the bowler a return catch but then Ben Duckett rose to the occasion by slamming the former England bowler for five fours in an over.The pressure eased as Adam Rossington and skipper Alex Wakely departed to consecutive balls from Liam Plunkett and the hammer blow on Steelbacks was inflicted by Adil Rashid who was able to take his place in the side after being left out by England at Old Trafford.Rashid had Duckett stumped by Andy Hodd for 51 from 23 balls with nine fours and a six. There was a brave effort, also, from Steven Crook who hit 43 from 26 balls with six fours and a six but once he fell lbw to Azeem Rafiq the visitors were 133 for 7 in the 14th over and the end came quickly.Northants coach David Ripley said: I thought we bowled well in the power play but Willey sat in there. Yorkshire have a dangerous combination of pace and spin and we will have to think about how we will cope with it next week because it will be the same situation. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
