Stephen Strasburg mowed down the Padres in epic fashion on Saturday, racking up 15 strikeouts while firing seven shutout innings in a 3-0 victory.

He set a new career high in strikeouts. He struck out 14 in his first major league game back in 2010. This comes a day after Max Scherzer fanned 13 Padres in yesterday's game. Strasburg allowed just three base hits, all singles, and issued one free pass. He singled and scored the game's first run (and the only one he needed) in the third inning. His record improves to 6-1 with a 2.94 ERA through 10 starts. He has amassed 74 strikeouts against just 18 walks in 67 1/3 innings. He is now tied for seventh in the majors in strikeouts.

Michael Taylor went 2-for-4 with a two-run jack in a win over the Padres on Saturday.

His blast off Padres' starter Clayton Richard broke open a 1-0 game and gave the Nationals some breathing room in the sixth inning. It was his second game in a row with a two-run homer. Taylor doesn't get to play every day but has hit well when given the chance. He is batting .274/.308/.460 with four homers and 13 RBI in 113 at-bats.

Koda Glover struck out one batter in a clean ninth inning to notch a save versus the Padres on Saturday.

He was protecting a 3-0 lead and accomplished the mission without any drama. It was his fifth save of the season. The Nationals have struggled mightily to find a reliable closer this season. Right now the job is Glover's and the 24-year-old might not let go of it anytime soon despite the presence of some experienced veterans in the Nationals' bullpen. He has a 2.35 ERA with 13 strikeouts and two walks in 15 1/3 innings.

Jesus Aguilar homered and scored twice in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Augilar went yard against Diamondbacks starter Zack Grienke in the sixth inning for a solo shot, his fourth homer of the year. There was a time when a struggling Aguilar seemed destined for the minors or even possibly a DFA, but he's now hitting .288/.345/.575 through 80 at-bats. He's gotten more playing time in recent weeks with Eric Thames' injury issues, but when Thames is healthy the 26-year-old is relegated to a bench role.
May 27 - 8:06 PM

Hunter Renfroe went 1-for-4 as the cleanup batter in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

He got one of the three hits (all singles) the Padres could muster against an utterly dominant Stephen Strasburg today. Renfroe usually bats fifth but moved up one slot with Wil Myers sitting out the game. The rookie is batting .231/.286/.440 with nine home runs and 20 RBI in 196 plate appearances.

Jett Bandy delivered a three-run double in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

It was a scoreless game in the bottom of the fourth inning when Bandy stepped to the plate with the sacks jacked and two outs. Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke grooved a 3-2 fastball, and Bandy lined it over left fielder Yasmany Tomas' head to clear the bases. It was Bandy's only hit in three at-bats. The Brewers entered spring with a competition at catcher, but the 27-year-old has grabbed hold of the spot and never let go, batting .280/.345/.520 with six homers and 18 RBI in 30 games to date.

Brad Peacock will start Monday against the Twins.

For now it appears Peacock has supplanted Mike Fiers in the starting rotation. Peacock impressed in a spot start last week, holding the Orioles to one hit over 4 1/3 shutout innings. The right-hander carries a 4.31 ERA over 47 big league starts.
May 27 - 7:58 PM

Zack Greinke allowed five runs over 5 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

As he has in each of his last six starts, Greinke yielded a longball among his five hits allowed. He also walked two and struck out six in the outing. The loss was his third this year and his first in over a month, dropping him to 6-3 with a 3.24 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 84/14 K/BB ratio over 72 1/3 innings overall. Greinke will try to rebound Thursday against the Marlins.
