St. Louis Cardinals at Washington Nationals MLB Matchup

After some dominating pitching to open the National League Championship Series, the Washington Nationals not only return home for Game 3 on Monday, they do so with another force on the mound.

Trailing 2-0 in the series, the St. Louis Cardinals will have to get their offense on track against Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg, who has appeared motivated for October success.

The Nationals have won all three games when Strasburg has appeared in these playoffs, including a start in the deciding Game 5 of the NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. And while he did give up two home runs early in that one, he settled down to give his team a chance to rally late.

Aside from personal momentum heading into Monday’s outing, Strasburg has been able to watch fellow pitchers Anibal Sanchez and Max Scherzer reveal an ideal blueprint for handling the Cardinals.

St. Louis has just four hits and one run in the first two games. The Cardinals were held without a hit into the eighth inning of Game 1 and into the seventh inning of Game 2.
