After dropping four of its last five, things don't get any easier for Houston as it faces Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals.

The Houston Astros will get a crack at one of MLB's hottest teams and pitchers when they take on the Washington Nationals and Stephen Strasburg on Monday. The Nationals 7-3 record leads the National League East.
