Strasburg Dominates In MLB Debut

Stephen Strasburg, making his MLB debut for the Washington Nationals tonight, struck out 14 Pittsburgh Pirates batters enroute to a 4-2 victory.  The 14 strikeouts were a team record. Strasburg, the 2009 No. 1 overall pick out of San Diego State, lived up to the billing as one of the greatest pitching prospects of the last half century.

Nationals Park was electric tonight as Strasburg pitched seven complete innings striking out the side in both the sixth and seventh innings.  Like all rookie, power pitchers, Strasburg will take his lumps during this rookie season, but with his progress and the selection earlier this week of Bryce Harper as the 2010 overall No. 1 pick, the future is looking bright for Nationals fans.  A few good free agent pickups over the next few off-seasons in terms of additional starting pitching and the Nationals will be contenders within 2-3 years.  RC Blog is looking forward to seeing Strasburg pitch in person during the season!
