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.
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.
