He will be opposed by left-hander Brad Hand (4-3, 4.23 ERA). The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game below.Read full article >>

When Strasburg pitches like Strasburg, he hits double-digit strikeouts regularly. Tuesday, as in his other August starts, Strasburg looked like his old self again — dominant and decisive — but strikeouts did not pile up as they normally do.Read full article >>
