Nationals Vs. Blue Jays: Stephen Strasburg Looks To Make It Five Straight

All "clown questions" aside, the Washington Nationals are rolling along right now. The Nationals wrap up a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon looking for their second straight series sweep, following a weekend streak against Boston. A Wednesday win would be six straight for Washington.

Starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg is just the man to do it. The right-hander has won four in a row, including a win over the Red Sox featuring 13 strike outs. During that stretch, Strasburg has allowed just seven earned runs. He has a 2.41 ERA this season, a 1.04 WHIP, 92 strike outs and just 19 walks in 71 innings of work.

On the hill for the Blue Jays is Kyle Drabek. The right-hander is 4-6 with a 4.43 ERA on the season. He will have to contain a red hot Bryce Harper who has six hits, including a home run in Tuesday's win, in the series.

The game starts at 12:37 p.m. Eastern. Fans can watch the game on MASN.
