Strasburg, Nats look for fast start against Mets

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Last season started so perfectly for the Washington Nationals.

Stephen Strasburg went seven innings and Bryce Harper homered twice in a 2-0 win over Miami. First step on their march back to October baseball -- or so it seemed.

Before long, the Nationals hit the skids and missed the playoffs at 86-76 after topping the majors with 98 wins in 2012. Now, they're a popular World Series pick again.

The hard-throwing Strasburg -- with a new pitch in his arsenal -- will try to get Washington off to another strong start Monday against Dillon Gee and the New York Mets at Citi Field.
