Stephen Strasburg will be making his sixth start this season when the Washington Nationals take on the Kansas City Royals Wednesday. The Nats have won all five games that Strasburg has started this season with the righty posting a 2.25 ERA and a 40/8 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
The Royals will counter with Kris Medlen, who has been quietly steady this season. Outside of one rough outing in which he gave up seven earned runs in 3.2 innings, Medlen has only given up four combined runs in his other three starts this season.
Bryce Harper has been struggling at the plate recently, with the superstar going just 1-for-20 through the past five games. Harper was hitting .314 before hitting his recent slump, but has seen his batting average fall to .256.
