The Nationals have not made it official, but it appears rookie Stephen Strasburg will face the Mets Saturday in Washington. The Mets have already announced R.A. Dickey (6-1) as their starter. The nationally televised game starts at 4:10. 

Strasburg (2-2)  has made five big league starts and had his poorest outing Monday as he allowed three earned runs on six hits in a 5-0 loss to the Braves. He struck out seven.
