    Stephen Strasburg improved to 1-1, allowing three hits and two walks over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Washington Nationals defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-0 on Wednesday. Strasburg struck out 12, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.64 WHIP on the season.

    Impact

    That should put to rest any controversy over the erroneous report that Strasburg had asked out of starting this pivotal game because he was too sick to do so. He'll be a handful for the Dodgers should the Nationals win Game 5 and advance, as he's now amassed a 6-1 record and a sensational 0.44 ERA over his last nine starts dating back to late August.

    Strasburg will start Game 4 of the NL Division Series against the Chicago Cubs after all.

    Impact

    The Nationals announced several hours before Wednesday's scheduled first pitch that they were going with Strasburg, hoping he can send the series back to Washington for a Game 5 on Friday. Manager Dusty Baker made a surprising announcement after Tuesday's rain postponement that he was sticking with Tanner Roark rather than going with Strasburg on regular rest. He mentioned an illness going around his team, which he attributed to the weather, air conditioning and mold.

    Strasburg (illness) will take the mound for Game 4 of the NLDS on Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com reports.

    Impact

    Strasburg will toe the rubber after all, as manager Dusty Baker decided to roll with him even though the 29-year-old was dealing with an illness leading up to the contest. This move pushes Tanner Roark to the bullpen, since the club will likely throw Gio Gonzalez on Thursday if a Game 5 is needed.

    News

    Strasburg (illness) is expected to start Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cubs on Wednesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Impact

    According to agent Scott Boras, Strasburg will take the mound Wednesday if he's feeling well enough to pitch, which the Nationals will determine within the next couple hours. This news marks a considerable turn since Tuesday night, as it was determined that Tanner Roark would be the starter for Game 4 while Strasburg recovered from an illness. Although he didn't get his usual prep work in, Strasburg will likely be the man on the mound for Washington on Wednesday, as he looks to extend the club's season for a Game 5 on Thursday.

    News

    Strasburg (illness) will pitch Game 5 of the NLDS against the Cubs if necessary, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Impact

    It was thought that Strasburg would step in to pitch the Nationals' must-win Game 4 following Tuesday's postponement, but he's apparently a little under the weather and didn't get his usual prep work in, so manager Dusty Baker is sticking with his originally planned rotation. Tanner Roark will start Wednesday, and if the Nationals are able to win and stay alive, Strasburg will get the ball for the decisive Game 5.
