Washington, DC (Sports Network) - John Baker collected three hits, drove in
three runs and scored once as the San Diego Padres salvaged a split of a two-
game set with the Washington Nationals with a 6-1 win on Tuesday.
Anthony Bass (2-4) tossed eight strong innings in the victory, fanning seven
while allowing just five hits, a walk and a run. James Darnell also homered as
the Padres snapped a two-game skid.
Stephen Strasburg (3-1) was smacked around for four runs on seven hits and two
walks over just four frames. It was Strasburg's shortest outing of the season,
and tied for the second-shortest in the young ace's career.
Bryce Harper hit a solo shot for the Nationals, who have lost two of three.
