WASHINGTON - Stephen Strasburg unleashed two years of pent-up playoff energy a€” and got nickel-and-dimed out of the game.The radar gun showed mostly 97s and 98s in the first inning of his much-anticipated post-season debut. There was even a 99. His fastball had lost a little bit of sizzle this season, but this was more like the rookie who dazzled the majors in 2010.It felt a lot like opening day, Strasburg said. I felt pretty strong.But the San Francisco Giants had a plan. Make contact. Manufacture a run or two. All eight of their hits against the Washington Nationals ace were singles. Six went to centre field. Two came in one inning and, aided by a poor defensive decision and a passed ball, produced a run. Three came in the next inning and produced another run.The Nationals needed something close to perfection from Strasburg because his San Diego pal Jake Peavy was spinning a masterpiece for the Giants and Washingtons bats managed only six hits all game.Instead, Strasburg was flawed just enough in Fridays 3-2 loss in the opener of the best-of-five NL Division Series.I think what were doing is were not getting too big up there, were not trying to do too much, said Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, who had one of those up-the-middle hits and later scored after reaching on a fielders choice. Were staying within ourselves. Were just doing that old game of getting people on, moving them over, and getting them in.Strasburgs final line looked decent enough: five innings, eight hits, two runs (one earned), one walk and two strikeouts. He threw 58 of his 89 pitches for strikes and was pulled after giving up back-to-back hits a€” yep, both to centre a€” to lead off the sixth.I was getting groundballs, Strasburg said. I was giving up all singles, so it wasnt like they were hitting me all around the yard. ... It was just one of those days where I felt like I made a pitch and they fought it off and hit it where we werent.The Nationals managed only two hits against Peavy and trailed 3-0 before Bryce Harper put one in the third deck to lead off the seventh against reliever Hunter Strickland. Asdrubal Cabrera followed one out later with a shot off Strickland that landed in the home bullpen.But that was it. They went 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position. Ian Desmond had a particularly tough game, going hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts and leaving six runners on base.I didnt put my best foot forward, Desmond said. Weve got some games left, and hopefully Im able to bounce back.It wont be easy. The Giants Game 2 starter Saturday is an old Nationals nemesis, Tim Hudson. In Game 3, Washington will have to go on the road and deal with Madison Bumgarner, who pitched a shutout in the wild-card game.We cant go 0-2 into San Fran, Harper said. Thats tough, so weve got to get that W tomorrow.Strasburg didnt pitch when the Nationals made the playoffs two years ago because he was shut down early, having hit an innings limit in his first full season after elbow surgery. He wasnt happy about it, and fans were left to wonder if the outcome would have been different had he been available for what turned out to be a five-game series loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.Strasburg went 14-11 this season with a 3.14 ERA and tied for the NL lead in strikeouts with 242, and there was little doubt he would get the Game 1 start vs. San Francisco.Those savvy Giants, who have two World Series titles in the last four years, werent fazed a bit.Dont try to do too much. Dont overanalyze anything, manager Bruce Bochy said. You start thinking too much against a good pitcher, you get yourself in trouble. We try to keep it simple.Strasburg showed some moxie to keep the game close. He threw seven consecutive balls to open the fifth and then hit a batter with an 0-2 pitch, but he got out of the inning by striking out Pablo Sandoval with a 97 mph fastball and getting Pence to pop out to first.He gave us a chance, Nationals first-year manager Matt Williams said. Jake was a little bit better.Strasburg isnt one to revel in the spotlight and would prefer to be treated as just another pitcher. With his playoff debut out of the way, perhaps the next one will be more normal a€” or as close to normal as the post-season can get.Im glad I was able to go out there and get my feet wet, he said. And Im excited for the next opportunity.___Follow Joseph White on Twitter: Su a Cravens Jersey . Jeter doubled high off the left-field wall and scored on Jacoby Ellsburys first hit in pinstripes in the fifth. Hiroki Kuroda (1-1) pitched 6 1-3 sharp innings in the Yankees 112th opener in New York. In what manager Joe Girardi said would be a season-long lovefest for Jeter, the shortstop was cheered every step of the way by an adoring crowd of 48, 142 -- even when his double-play grounder back to Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez (0-2) scored Solarte in the third inning for the first run. Sam Huff Jersey . Braves reliever David Carpenter was also fined for throwing at Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson in the same game, which featured several ejections, including Colorado manager Walt Weiss. ... ns-Jersey/. The 20-year-old overager has appeared in 35 games for the Ontario Hockey Leagues Erie Otters this season, scoring 41 goals and adding 27 assists with a plus-28 rating. Sammy Baugh Jersey . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts. Doug Williams Jersey . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side.CLEVELAND -- Browns starting Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron will not play in the home opener against New Orleans because of an injured right shoulder. The Browns will also be missing starting linebacker Barkevious Mingo, who missed practice this week with a shoulder injury. Cameron, who caught 80 passes for 917 yards and seven touchdowns last season, hurt his shoulder during training camp and then re-injured last week after making a 47-yard recepttion against Pittsburgh.dddddddddddd Cameron did not practice this week. Jabaal Sheard will start in place of Mingo, a first-round draft pick in 2013. As expected, Browns running back Ben Tate is out with a sprained knee. Rookie Terrance West will start in his place. West rushed for 100 yards last week. The only notable lineup change for the Saints is fullback Austin Johnson starting for Erik Lorig, who has an ankle injury.
