Last week against the Phillies, Stephen Strasburg accomplished something rarely seen in baseball: with one pitch, he hit the batter, catcher and umpire. 

Tuesday night against the Marlins, Strasburg did it again.

In a Nats' season full of weirdness, this is certainly one of the odder oddities. And aside from these crazy HBPs, Strasburg has pitched great in his last two starts, giving up just three earned runs and striking out 20 over 13 total innings.

There may not be too many reasons to watch the Nats close out this disappointing season, but it might be worth it to tune in to Stasburg's next start to see if he can plunk the home plate trio a third time. He has two more scheduled starts this season, including the regular season finale at Colorado.
