They only scored one run. Yep, that’s about it. It does’t matter that Zimmerman had an error that led to two unearned runs. Strasburg appeared to be struggling at times, but ended up giving up zero earned runs. Tim Hudson, who was the Braves opening day starter by the way, pitched a savvy game. He did not out pitch Strasburg, the Braves out scored the Nats. This is a minor but important distinction. Scoring one run is going to lose the game just about every time.
