Report: Nationals being sneaky, Strasburg likely to start Game 4

The NLDS Game 4 featuring the Chicago Cubs and the Washington Nationals was postponed on Tuesday night and will be made up on Wednesday at 3:08 p.m. CT.

According to Dusty Baker in his Tuesday night press conference, standout pitcher Stephen Strasburg was "under the weather" and didn't get his normal workload in so he would be unavailable on Wednesday to pitch at all.

"We're going to go as planned with Tanner (Roark)," Baker said. He didn't work out for Strasburg's workout day. We have full confidence in Tanner. Strasburg is feeling under the weather, like a lot of my team is. This day actually comes as a plus."

It now appears that the Nationals will pitch Strasburg after realizing it is an elimination game for the Nationals.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo was interviewed on the radio on Wednesday morning and had the following update on Strasburg.

"Yeah, he wanted to pitch," Rizzo said. "What he told Mike Maddux was he'll give us everything he has. He's not sure how much that is and how long he can go."
