Almost Nine Months Since Strasburg Lost

Stephen Strasburg will look to remain among the few undefeated pitchers in baseball when the Washington Nationals take on the New York Mets on Tuesday. The Nats will be looking to win their 14th consecutive game with Strasburg on the mound. The last time the team lost when Strasburg started was September 9. Strasburg has allowed a combined 22 earned runs in his past 13 starts while registering 84 strikeouts.
