The Nationals have won 11 of the past 13 games and are a season-high three games over .500. Stephen Strasburg (2-3, 4.73 ERA) takes mound in the second game of the series against the Diamondbacks. Strasburg’s last start was short; he left after three innings with a shoulder/back issue that improved after visiting a chiropractor.

Strasburg has been working to improve his mechanics, which was affected by his twisted ankle in spring and then led to the back/shoulder issues. Strasburg entered the season with career lows in strikeout and swing-and-miss rates. His .398 BABIP leads the majors. Rubby De La Rosa (3-2, 4.38 ERA) starts for the Diamondbacks. The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game below.
