RHP
1-1, 5.56 ERA, 28 SO
When Strasburg completes one inning Sunday, he will match Gio Gonzalez for the most innings thrown as a member of the Nationals. Strasburg has not been his usual dominant self to start the season, but the Nats are confident he will eventually regain his form.
RHP
0-2, 3.57 ERA, 21 SO
In 29 career starts, Richards has 151 strikeouts in 149 innings. He looks to rebound from his shortest outing of the season, 4 2/3 innings, allowing five runs on four hits with just three strikeouts in a loss to the Cubs. Chicago mostly did not chase Richards' changeup, which he throws 36.1 percent of the time this season.
