    Washington Nationals starting pitcher?Stephen Strasburg returned from the disabled list Sunday and held the?Cincinnati Reds?hitless for 6 2/3 innings before he was removed from the game after throwing 109 pitches.Strasburg struck out five batters and walked four in Washingtons?12-1 win over the Reds at Nationals Park.The Nationals no-hit bid ended in the eighth inning, when reliever Matt Belisle gave up a single to Ramon Cabrera.Its tough taking a guy out of a no-hitter, but we have to think about the future and where he had come from off the DL, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. You just think, Were going to need him.Strasburg (11-0) has won a franchise-record 14 straight decisions and is the first NL starter to begin a season 11-0 since San Diegos Andy Hawkins in 1985. He did not disagree with Bakers decision to remove him.I understand where hes coming from, Strasburg said. Theres more important things, hopefully, down the road for this team.Strasburg was just five pitches shy of his highest pitch count this season. He left to a standing ovation from the crowd of 37,328 and was replaced by?Blake Treinen,?who got?Billy Hamilton?to ground out.I felt pretty good, Strasburg said. It was weird, warming up. My changeup was the only pitch I could really locate, and then I couldnt find the strike zone with it today, but the curveball and slider were really good.The Nationals placed right-hander?Joe Ross on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation to open a roster spot when Strasburg was activated Sunday.Ross, 23, labored through 5 1/3 innings against Cincinnati on Saturday, allowing a season-high 10 hits and four earned runs. Ross velocity was noticeably down.Strasburg hadnt started since June 15 after he suffered an upper-back strain. The Nationals scratched him from two starts before making the DL move June 26 and backdating it to June 16.Strasburg, who signed a seven-year, $175 million contract extension in May, lowered his season ERA to 2.71 with Sundays performance.Moving Ross (7-4, 3.47 ERA) to the DL also means rookie?Lucas Giolito?will remain in the rotation. The 21-year-old threw?four scoreless innings in his debut June 28 against the New York Mets.The Associated Press contributed to this report.
