MIAMI -- And so we've reached the fourth and final game of this wraparound series to open the season's second half.
Game in a nutshell: Stephen Strasburg was stuck in a three-game losing streak. Ian Desmond was out of the lineup with a lingering oblique strain. The Nationals were silenced at the plate.
MIAMI -- Stephen Strasburg, in a slump? Say it ain't so.
MIAMI -- In hindsight, the Nationals were perfectly happy to wind up with Gio Gonzalez in their rotation instead of Mark Buehrle.
