WASHINGTON (AP) - Stephen Strasburg bounced back from his worst outing of the season with 7 2-3 dominant innings, and Jayson Werth had two doubles and three RBIs in the Washington Nationals' 7-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Anthony Rendon added a two-run double for Washington, which has won four straight.

Strasburg (7-6) tied his career high by allowing seven earned runs in 4 2-3 innings in his last start, and was 0-2 with a 7.27 ERA over his last three.

Tuesday night he struck out eight and walked one while giving up one run. The Rockies didn't get a runner past second until DJ LeMahieu's homer in the eighth.

He was lifted after walking Corey Dickerson with his 111th pitch of the night.

Christian Friedrich (0-3) allowed five runs in 3 1-3 innings for Colorado, which has lost 13 of 15.
