Strasburg (7-0) struck out 10 Mets over six sharp innings Thursday, allowing just one run on six hits and a walk in a 9-1 rout.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With four double-digit-strikeout games out of nine and still no losses on his record, Strasburg's been nearly unimpeachable on the mound this season. Indeed, 2016 is shaping up to be his finest year in the majors, and he'll look to keep the god times rolling in a rematch against these Mets on Tuesday.

Strasburg (6-0) surrendered five hits, three earned runs and three walks over six innings in the first game of a day-night doubleheader versus the Marlins. He struck out seven.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 27-year-old ace kept a perfect record on the season, despite giving up a first-inning homer to Christian Yelich. He also tallied at least seven whiffs for the seventh straight start, although he only induced eight swinging strikes over 104 pitches. The solid run support he's received-- as well as his superior stuff-- has allowed him to escape with victories over the last two appearances. Strasburg has given up seven earned runs during the last pair of starts, but has also recorded 18 strikeouts over that span.

Strasburg will make his next start Saturday in the first game of the Nationals doubleheader rather than Sunday, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was originally thought that Strasburg would get an extra day of rest before making his next start, but with the Nationals making up their rainout from April 9 on Saturday, the Nationals opted to keep him on his normal schedule. This move bumps Tanner Roark into the nightcap Saturday, with Sunday's starter to be determined.

Strasburg has now struck out 10 batters in consecutive starts, giving him a 2.17 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB in 29 innings to begin the season. It's early, but 2016 might finally be the year Strasburg puts it all together and takes a run at his first Cy Young award.

Strasburg (2-0) struck out seven while holding the Braves to two runs on four hits and two walks in 7.2 innings during Thursday's win.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After a so-so first outing of the year, Strasburg had his Wednesday start pushed back to Thursday due to an illness, but he certainly looked healthy out there. With Strasburg pitching well and Bryce Harper supporting him with a grand slam, the Nationals couldn't ask for the plan to go off better than it did in this game. Considering the expectations that have been placed on Strasburg throughout his career, it's a disappointment that he's never pitched a full season with an ERA under 3.00. But at 27 years old and finally healthy, it wouldn't be surprising to see Strasburg turn in his best campaign yet. Of course, he'll have to face far tougher opposition than the Braves in future starts.
