Nationals' Strasburg looks to stay cool versus Cubs

WASHINGTON -- - After his last start, Stephen Strasburg reflected on the challenge of pitching in the heat and humidity of the nation's capital.

"I was trying to go as long as I can and as hard as I can," said Strasburg, who lasted only five innings Friday against the Cincinnati Reds and did not figure in the decision.

The game time temperature was 87. "I will have to go back to the drawing board (to handle it). I think I will adjust eventually," Strasburg said.
