Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 batters and allowed one run in six innings for his 15th win in one of his final starts of the season as the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 on Tuesday night.

For weeks, the impending shutdown of Strasburg has been the talk of baseball and though the Nationals haven’t said exactly what their limit for the star right-hander is, it’s thought to be between 160 and 180 innings. After this start, his fourth straight win, when he allowed four hits and walked one, he has thrown 145 1-3 innings.

Talk of his innings limit overshadowed discussion of the NL East race. Washington’s win gave the Nationals a seven-game lead over second-place Atlanta, their largest of the season.

The Braves have lost four straight.
