New Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg.

Later today, Washington Nationals pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg will make another home start and try to continue his impressive arrival in the major leagues.

Rookie Stephen Strasburg has two victories and has yet to lose since making his debut a few weeks ago. He has an incredible 22 strikeouts in his two games.

The Nationals are struggling leading into Strasburg's third game, and second stint on the mound at home. They've lost five out of their last six and now hold a 31 and 36 record for the season.

Tonight's game against the Chicago White Sox start's just after 7 p.m., with 400 $5 dollar tickets on sale at the box office starting at 4:30, two-and-a-half hours before the first pitch.

Regular tickets were not sold out as of Friday morning.
