ATLANTA -- The Nationals said Saturday an MRI showed a slight strain in Stephen Strasburgs lat instead of his oblique, and the team is hoping the right-hander can avoid the disabled list. Strasburg left Friday nights game against the Braves after two innings. Strasburg was examined in Washington on Saturday. After Saturday nights 2-1 loss to the Braves, trainer Lee Kuntz said Strasburg has a grade one strain. "Thats the lowest," Kuntz said. "Its a lat and its down low. Its also happens to be where your oblique comes around and inserts." The concern Friday was Strasburg had an oblique injury, but Kuntz said Saturday "I dont have X-ray eyes." Manager Davey Johnson said the strain is "kind of up his back on the right side. Maybe it will go away. Its a little different than if it were lower and on the side more." Johnson said there is no need to rush a decision on Strasburgs status for his next start on Thursday. The Nationals have an off day on Monday, and Johnson said Saturday Strasburgs next start could be pushed back if necessary. "Well see how he feels," Johnson said. "If hes not having any discomfort and its not grabbing him, he wont miss a start. But if its bothering him hell probably miss a start and see if it eases up for him and he doesnt have to do anything more than that." Johnson said it was too early to look at how he might adjust the rotation to give Strasburg extra rest. "Its premature to be doing that," Johnson said. "Lets see how hes feeling today and how hes feeling tomorrow. Then well take it from there." Strasburgs start in the Nationals 3-2 win Friday night was the shortest of his career. He grimaced after throwing a change-up to Brian McCann with one out in the second but completed the inning. Craig Stammen relieved Strasburg to begin the third. Another starting pitcher, Ross Detwiler, is on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain. Strasburg is 3-5 with a 2.54 ERA in 12 games. He was 15-6 with a 3.16 ERA in 2012. The Nationals on Saturday placed outfielder Bryce Harper on the 15-day disabled list with bursitis in his left knee.

The hard-throwing right-hander dominated the potent St. Louis Cardinals lineup for seven innings to lead Chicago to a 7-0 victory Friday. "Thats the kind of stuff the power arms can do when theyre throwing strikes and making pitches and you have a 91 mph cutter, slider or whatever you want to call it," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "He made some really good pitches in some key situations of counts. When you thought you might be losing good hitters, he made some key pitches on the black at 95, 96 mph." Arrieta (1-0) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out seven. After yielding an infield single to Carlos Beltran in the second, he got rookie Kolten Wong to ground into a double play. That started a streak of 13 straight outs (including five strikeouts) until Arrieta walked St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook (7-8) in the sixth. The next batter, Matt Carpenter, also walked to give the Cardinals their first threat of the game. But Jon Jay grounded into a fielders choice and Matt Holiday struck out looking to end the inning. In his only other start with Chicago, Arrieta allowed one run and two hits in six innings July 30 against Milwaukee. Hes thrown 13 innings in a Cubs uniform and allowed one run. Thats a far cry from the struggling pitcher who went 1-2 with a 7.23 ERA for Baltimore this season before he was traded to the Cubs on July 2. So which one is the real Jake Arrieta? The struggling power arm or the dominant pitcher he was on Friday? "Thats what Im capable of," Arrieta said. "Its just a matter commanding the ball and limiting my walks. Thats really whats gotten me in the past was too many free passes, letting guys get away when Im in favourable counts and pretty much keeping my foot on the gas and staying on the attack. "Ive made a conscious effort to get better at certain things and its starting to show." The Cubs got Arrieta all the runs he needed in the first inning. After Westbrook walked the bases loaded, cleanup batter Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run single to centre. Donnie Murphy added a two-out RBI single to make it 3-0. Chicago had been shut out in four of its past five home games. "We got some big hits. I think the biggest was Nates," Sveum said. "Weve had chances like that this year when we couldnt come away with one (run) and to come away with the big hit there and then Murphys two-out hit ... to get three runs on the boardd there was key in that game.dddddddddddd" The 27-year-old Arrieta should be entering the prime of his career, but hes still trying to establish himself in the majors. He thinks the trade to the Cubs has given him a fresh start free of his struggles of the past. "For me, theres no question that this change of scenery and this trade was huge for me in my career -- not only for me, but for the Cubs as well," he said. "I couldnt be more excited to be here and Im thankful to the front office for wanting me and bringing me into this organization." The Cubs snapped a four-game losing streak and are 7-7 this season against the Cardinals, who began the day trailing first-place Pittsburgh by two games in the NL Central. Westbrook finished with five walks but managed to grind through 6 2-3 innings to save the bullpen. He allowed seven runs -- six earned -- and eight hits with two strikeouts. "I was pretty much all over the place and the walks hurt you, especially when theyre in a row with no outs," Westbrook said. "It wasnt very good. Its always frustrating when you dont give your team a chance to win and do your job, which I havent been able to do the last couple outings." Since coming off the disabled list June 14, Westbrook is 5-7 with a 5.86 ERA. After the loss, he said his arm feels fine. Asked if Westbrook is certain to make his next start, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was non-committal. "Well see how he feels tomorrow," Matheny said "Thats not what any of us were looking for," he added. "Talked about it before: Sometimes he just has trouble finding the release point for his sinker and he couldnt find it today until it was too late." NOTES: Wong started at 2B and went 0 for 3 in his major league debut. His arrival relegated 3B David Freese, the 2011 World Series MVP, to the bench. All-Star leadoff hitter Matt Carpenter moved from second base to third. "I would say its a day-by-day situation," Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. "Im not saying (Wong) has to play every day. There are going to be times when we want to get David back in the lineup, so I imagine theres going to be some split playing opportunities." ... Cubs RHP Matt Guerrier was scheduled to have surgery on the flexor mass (near his elbow and forearm) of his throwing arm Friday. The surgery, performed by Dr. Timothy Kremchek, is expected to sideline Guerrier six to eight months. ... Joe Kelly (3-3) faces Cubs LHP Travis Wood (7-9) in the second game of the series Saturday.
