Nationals 8, Diamondbacks 1

WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg allowed one run in eight innings, and Ian Desmond had three hits and four RBIs as Washington earned its eighth consecutive win.

After three straight walk-off wins, with two coming in the 11th inning, the Nationals got a breather as they erupted for six runs in the third, including a bases-loaded double by Asdrubal Cabrera that made it 6-1.

Strasburg (10-10) improved to 8-2 at home. He allowed three hits with four strikeouts, giving him a league-high 198 this season and setting a career high in that category.
