Stephen Strasburg will be Nationals' opening-day starter

Nationals manager Matt Williams named the 25-year-old right-hander as his No. 1 starter after Wednesday's game against the Houston Astros.
Williams picked Strasburg in part because ''of his experience. He's done it before ... And he's earned it.''
The first-year manager has been impressed by Strasburg's work ethic this spring, particularly when it comes to improving his game.
