Nationals-Padres discussion thread: Game 41

Stephen Strasburg John McDonnell/WP

Stephen Strasburg used to come to Petco Park and sit in the right field seats, which gave him the best view of the Padres pitchers warming up in the bullpen. Tonight, the pride of West Hills High and San Diego State will make his first major league start in his hometown. A couple people close to Strasburg had a feeling this would be a big start for him, in a good way, in getting his season going in the right direction. He’ll face Edinson Volquez. Talk about the game right here.
