Stephen Strasburg

Strasburg came into the opener of this three-game series with an ugly 6.99 ERA in seven career road starts against the Braves, but the hard-throwing righty surrendered just five hits, did not walk a batter and struck out seven.

Good luck finding the Nationals' weakness as Washington steamrolls toward East title

You are going to see the Washington Nationals in October, you are not going to be dazzled by them, and that will be just fine. It is ruthless efficiency, of a sort completely antithetical to the city they represent, that makes the Nationals the best team in the National League, with their magic number to clinch the East down to nine after a 6-2 win over the Mets on Thursday night.
