WASHINGTON (AP) – Stephen Strasburg pitched six innings for his second win of the season, to lead the Washington Nationals to a 6-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday.

Strasburg looked nearly unhittable for five innings, allowing just three singles, but the Astros got to him in the sixth for two runs and three hits.

Strasburg (2-0) walked one and struck out five. He hasn’t allowed a home run in 50 1-3 innings – since Aug. 15, 2010.

Steve Lombardozzi had three singles and a two-run double in the sixth off Kyle Weiland (0-2) that gave Washington a 4-2 lead. Ryan Zimmerman followed with a two-run single.

Weiland started for the seventh time in his major league career and is winless in five decisions.

After Strasburg left, Sean Burnett got two outs in the seventh, Ryan Mattheus allowed an unearned run in the eighth, Tom Gorzelanny finished the eighth, and Henry Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his second save.

In the third, Ian Desmond doubled to left with one out. Lombardozzi bunted, but Weiland threw the ball away, and Desmond scored on the error.

Wilson Ramos hit his first home run with two outs in the fourth.
