Game 8: Strasburg Struggles in St. Louis Nats Chat

    • Baseball

The Nats were routed 14-3 by the Cardinals Tuesday evening as Stephen Strasburg had one of his worst career starts, allowing 8 runs in 4+ innings.  Al & Mark run through Strasburg's outing and the camera controversy in the tunnel that dominated the postgame conversation.  Anything physically wrong with Strasburg or was it just poor mechanics?

(13:37) The 5th inning was a nightmare for Washington reliever Luis Avilan and the guys recap the 9 run frame for the Cardinals.  On the bright side, the bullpen was effective in the final 3 innings of work, including a memorable bottom of the 8th pitched by a position player.  

(22:56) Finally, a preview of the series rubber match Wednesday afternoon as Joe Ross takes on veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright, and an update on Will Harris.
