Strasburg's debut shaky; O's-Nats suspended by tarp issues

WASHINGTON (AP) Stephen Strasburg's season debut was about to unravel in a five-run fifth inning Sunday, when he walked a batter and vigorously shook his right hand.

Washington Nationals manager Dave Martinez and a trainer exited the dugout to go check on the World Series MVP, who's had a nerve issue in his pitching hand. He waved them off.

Strasburg stayed in long enough to face three more batters and allow three more hits to the Orioles in a game that eventually was suspended with Baltimore ahead 5-2 in the top of the sixth - because the grounds crew had trouble unrolling the tarp when a shower arrived.
