Phillies-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- Batters aren't struggling to get hits off Stephen Strasburg, much unlike the past two years - when he regularly victimized the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Washington Nationals right-hander could get on the right track Sunday by continuing his mastery of the Phillies, who have had trouble hitting most pitchers entering the finale of a four-game series in the nation's capital.

Strasburg (0-1, 6.75 ERA) has a .378 opponent batting average going into the weekend, fifth-worst in the majors among pitchers to have thrown at least 10 innings. That's a surprise considering he held batters to a .228 average over the 2013 and 2014 seasons to rank ninth in baseball.
