Strasburg’s glorious return, not so much.
Back to back strikeouts to start the game until former Marlin Justin Bour smacks an RBI double and then Franco follows with a two run #dinger
Rendon gave the Nats their first run, driving in Bryce (reached on a bunt against the shift).
Bryce later added a double to drive in Trea in the 3rd and Soto drove him in.
All tied up after Wieters knocks in the Nats 4th run.
Phillies move ahead and don’t look back until…
