Nationals-Pirates discussion thread: Game 31

(Tom Uhlman/AP)

Stephen Strasburg could not have picked a better opponent to bounce back from his last start, when he walked four Braves despite allowing only two runs in six innings. He has been dominant in two career starts against the Pirates, both wins, including his remarkable debut. In 13 innings against Pittsburgh, Strasburg has 27 strikeouts and three walks. Today, he’ll face underrated lefty Jeff Locke, who is 3-1 with a 2.38 ERA. Talk about the game right here.
