Washington Nationals vs Pittsburgh Pirates: GameThread 101 Of 162

Can the Washington Nationals stop the losing here? They've got Stephen Strasburg on the mound in the nation's capital, but they're also facing a left-hander and they've struggled against lefties. Can the Nats' snap their five-game losing streak in the 3rd of 4 with Pittsburgh?
