The Nationals have lost two games in a row for the first time since June 27, and they’ll try to prevent a losing streak with Stephen Strasburg making his final start of the first half. Strasburg comes in on a pretty good roll, with 17 strikeouts, one walk and three runs allowed over 14 2/3 innings in his previous two starts. He’ll face Cole Hamels in a pitching match-up worthy of national television. It’s a FOX game tonight, which means a 7:15 start. Talk about the game right here.
