"Strasburg finds his comfort zone" - NATS INSIDER - Mark Zuckerman

"As he walked off the field at Great American Ball Park in the sixth inning tonight, his Nationals leading the Reds 7-3, Stephen Strasburg was surprised to hear a fan behind the dugout get on his case for merely looking like a very good mortal pitcher. "The soft-spoken rookie stared at the guy and responded: "Look at the scoreboard."

Reds reach out and touch faith - and it sucks. Reds lose, 8-5. - Red Reporter

"Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game: Miguel Cairo. This was a tough award to assign. I didn't see the game, and my only criteria was to not give it to Strasburg. It sounded like maybe Cairo wasn't that sharp with his glove, but he never made an out at the plate, going 2-2 with 2 walks and 2 RBI."

MLB.com's Bill Ladson - "Atilano to miss start with sore elbow" | nationals.com: News

"With Atilano not able to go on the mound Sunday, the Nationals are considering left-handers John Lannan and Matt Chico to make the start against the Brewers."
