Stephen Strasburg drove off the hype ramp and cleared it. The phenom in his first major league outing pitched 7 innings in a win. Strasburg only let up 4 hits, 2 earned runs and had 0 walks. The biggest thing of this outing besides the win was the number of strikeouts he had. Strasburg struck out 14 batters. That ties the most strikeouts for a pitcher this year. If Strasburg stays consistent he will be in the running for NL rookie of the year. His competition will consist of Jason Heyward, Mike Leake, David Freese, and Jaime Garcia. Tough competition no doubt but if we see more outings like this it might be Strasburg’s title before you know it.
