Without Strasburg, Nats turn to Jackson for Game 3
Strasburg has been shut down for a month. Carpenter has pitched only 17 innings all year because of surgery, and he'll be on the mound today for Game 3 of the NL division series between the Nationals and Cardinals. The best-of-five series is tied 1-1.
The Nationals counter with Edwin Jackson, their only starter with postseason experience: He was on the Cardinals' 2011 World Series champions.
Carpenter went 4-0 during that run, including winning Game 7 against Texas.
That success, Washington's Ryan Zimmerman says, "isn't going to do anything" for Carpenter today.
