Game 132 lineups: Nats vs. Marlins

It never entirely feels like Stephen Strasburg is out of the woods from a previous injury, and there will always be those who hold their breath every time the right-hander throws a pitch. But based on what we've seen in two starts since his return from his latest elbow injury, he sure does look like he's 100 percent.

Strasburg has been real sharp in both outings, holding the Padres and Astros to a combined two runs on seven hits in 12 innings, striking out 15 while walking only two. The Nationals have held him to 91 and 90 pitches, respectively, so we'll see if they're willing to push him a bit further this afternoon when he faces the Marlins in the finale of this three-game series.

The Nats are attempting to sweep the series and all but quash whatever sliver of hope Miami had of making the division race anything other than a formality. Washington now holds a 14-game lead, with a magic number of 18 to clinch.
