Marcell Ozuna drove in three runs, and Giancarlo Stanton homered for the Miami Marlins, who dealt Stephen Strasburg the worst loss of his career in a 8-3 win over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.

Strasburg (5-7) allowed a career-high seven earned runs and tied a career-high with four walks in two innings after the Nationals spotted him a 3-0 lead.

It was his shortest outing since he pitched two innings on May 31 at Atlanta. He left that game early because of a lat strain that forced him to go on the disabled list.

Washington has lost four of five.

Nathan Eovaldi (2-0) settled down after a rough first inning and held the Nationals without a run over the next five innings. He struck out five and walked four.
