Nationals

Stephen Strasburg was rocked once again Saturday afternoon, leaving the Nationals searching for answers to fix their struggling former ace.
The less said about this game, the better. Stephen Strasburg was roughed up once again and the Nationals were charged with four errors in an 8-1 loss.
Tanner Roark, who returns to the Nats' rotation Monday against the Cubs, believes his time in the bullpen will actually help him as a starter.
