Friday’s matchup between Washington’s Stephen Strasburg and San Francisco’s Jake Peavy – pals who sometimes work out together in San Diego – gives one indication of the gap in experience the series represents. Strasburg, held out of the 2012 postseason to protect his surgically repaired elbow, will be making his playoff debut; Peavy will be making his sixth October start, including as a member of last season’s World Series champion Boston Red Sox.
