The Nationals haven’t been under .500 all season, and for that to continue they need to win tonight. The Nationals hope Stephen Strasburg can serve as a stopper. In four starts after a Nationals loss this season, Strasburg is 2-1 with  2.55 ERA, having allowed 27 hits, walked eight and struck out 32 in 24 2/3 innings.
