Right-hander Stephen Strasburg will start Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the Cardinals when the series shifts to Washington on Monday, and lefty Patrick Corbin will follow in Tuesday's Game 4, the Nationals announced before Game 2 on Saturday.

Strasburg will be working on regular rest, while Corbin, whose last outing was a stellar relief appearance in the decisive Game 5 of the NL Division Series against the Dodgers, will be on five days' rest. Strasburg, who has a 2.40 ERA this postseason and a 1.32 ERA in his postseason career, will be opposed by Cardinals ace Jack Flaherty. Corbin will be up against Dakota Hudson.
