Stephen Strasburg will be looking to extend his winning streak to four games when he and the Washington Nationals face 23-year-old Shelby Miller and the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.
On Monday, Stephen Strasburg went six innings against the San Francisco Giants and was able to pick up his sixth win of the season. He allowed just one earned run in those six innings of work and struck out seven while walking no one for the second consecutive game. Strasburg has only given up six home runs in 87.1 innings this season and he has struck out 11.1 batters per nine innings.
Allen Craig has gone up against Strasburg nine times in his career and he has zero hits with five strikeouts. Matt Carpenter has two hits in six at-bats against him with two doubles and two strikeouts.
Shelby Miller pitched his second-career shutout last Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays for his seventh win of the season. He only allowed three hits in that outing and walked one while striking out five. On the year, Miller has only given up 68 hits in 77.2 innings and he now has a 3.59 ERA.
Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond has a double and an RBI against Miller in his career, but he is just 1-for-9 against him overall. No one on the Nats has been able to hit a homer off of him yet.
