Stephen Strasburg takes the mound, searching for his sixth win of the season despite a stellar 2.45 ERA. Another win and strong performance could be the final push that helps land him an all-star selection with Friday’s news that teammate Jordan Zimmerman will not pitch in the game because of a lingering stiff neck. He is opposed by Nathan Eovaldi (1-0, 2.55 ERA). The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game here.
