Game in a nutshell: What should have been a fantastic pitchers' duel between two of the NL's best (Jordan Zimmermann and Kyle Lohse) instead turned into a wild slugfest filled with twists
Stephen Strasburg is down to his final stretch of the season, and he's been made aware of the Nationals' plan for him.
When he struck out 10 Braves over six brilliant innings last week, everyone wondered if the Nationals really would shut down Stephen Strasburg in the middle of a pennant race.
As the MLB regular season gets set for its final month, the Nationals and Braves are preparing for what should be an exciting two-team race for the N.L. East crown.
There really are no such thing as "must-win" games in baseball, at least not until a team is one loss from elimination.
