The Nationals are favored to win the National League East title and lived up to expectations on the first day of the regular season.  Stephen Strasburg threw seven shutout innings and Bryce Harper belted two home runs to help Washington shutout the Marlins, 2-0 at Nationals Park.

Nationals relievers Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano closed out the Marlins the rest of the way, with Soriano picking up his first save as a member of the Nationals.

Division rival Atlanta will face the Phillies tonight at 7:00 to get their 2013 season underway.
