(Up above, video of Stephen Strasburg -- video via @natsnq -- striking out the first batter of the game Friday night for the P-Nats.)
And so, the results are in from Stephen Strasburg's latest and greatest (second) rehab start tonight in Woodbridge. By all accounts, Strasburg dominated: 3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 5 K, 33 pitches, 26 strikes. Nary a baseball left the infield; although he did give up a hit to a kid named Strausborger. Various accounts had him hitting 98, even 99 on Pfitzner Stadium radar gun. After a 1-2-3 third inning, Strasburg reportedly made his way to the bullpen to throw a bullpen session to fulfill his 50 pitch allotment for the evening. He was too damn good,.
So - see you in a few weeks in Washington, Stras? Time to gobble up tickets for Tuesday, September 6th at Nationals Park against the Dodgers?
