The Nationals’ second half starts tonight with a meeting of two first-place teams. Stephen Strasburg, making his league-leading 21st start, will face Brewers right-handed Kyle Lohse. The last time Strasburg faced the Brewers, they plastered him at Miller Park. The Nationals haven’t faced Lohse this year, but last season he allowed them three earned runs in 13 innings over two starts. Talk about the game right here.
