Stephen Strasburg (6-9, 3.00 ERA) takes the mound and faces the Marlins, a team that has actually hit him well. He is 5-3 with a career 3.77 ERA against the Marlins. This season, he is 1-1 with a 7.00 ERA over nine innings against them. He was two strikes away in his previous start, against the Chicago Cubs, from notching his second career complete game. The Nationals face Henderson Alvarez (2-3, 3.86 ERA) The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game here.
