Strasburg strikes out season-high 11, Nats top Braves 3-2

ATLANTA (AP) A strong start by Stephen Strasburg provided much-needed relief for Washington's drained bullpen. Then Koda Glover made a convincing pitch to be the Nationals' closer.

Strasburg struck out a season-high 11 and kept up his recent domination of the Atlanta Braves, leading Washington to a 3-2 win Sunday that stopped the Nationals' four-game losing streak.

"I felt like whatever I called, it was going to be good," catcher Jose Lobaton said.
