There was a time when Stephen Strasburg's starts were accompanied by a mix of excitement and fear. Excitement over what he might do on any given night on the mound. Fear, for what might happen while he's doing it.
But now, nearly 22 months removed from Tommy John surgery, the predominant feeling for the Washington Nationals when Strasburg takes the mound is comfort.
Strasburg has taken the ball after the Nationals have lost three or more consecutive games four times this season. Wednesday night, the fourth of those occasions, Strasburg helped the Nats beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2, snapping the team's four-game losing streak.
