Over 6 innings of work and 81 pitches, Pomeranz held the Nationals to 1 hit and 2 walks while striking out 6 batters.
Rex Brothers had a real scary 9th, allowing a solo homer to Ryan Zimmerman and a couple of hits after that, but his shaky performance was bookended by the usual excellence we've come to expect out of Rafael Betancourt and Matt Belisle.
Strasburg's final line was 6 innings, 8 hits, 3 runs (2ER), 2 HR (both to Colvin), 6 strikeouts and a walk.
That's 2 openers against Strasburg, and 2 wins for the Rockies. Nice work, team!
