Strasburg to start Game 3 for Nats; Corbin in 4

October 12th, 2019

Right-hander will start Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the Cardinals when the series shifts to Washington on Monday, and lefty 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.
