Stephen Strasburg, starting pitcher for the victorious Washington Nationals, has been named 2019 World Series MVP.

In five postseason starts, Strasburg posted a 5-0 record. Over 36.1 innings pitched, Strasburg allowed 30 hits, nine runs, four home runs and four walks while silencing opponents with 47 strikeouts to end the 2019 postseason with a 1.98 ERA.

For Strasburg's final start of 2019, he stunned Houston in Game 6 as he tossed 8.1 innings, striking out seven, walking two, and earning two runs. 

The Nationals went 10-0 in games started by the MVP and Nationals ace Max Scherzer during the 2019 playoffs, which is the best team record in games started by any duo in a single MLB postseason.
