Strasburg Update

The presumptive number one overall pick Stephen Strasburg struck out 17 batters on his way to no-hit victory. The San Diego State Aztecs, led by Hall of Famer Ton Gwynn, defeated the Air Force 5-0. Most of the Nationals front office staff, including GM Mike Rizzo and scouting director Dana Brown, were in attendance to see the game.

This story keeps getting better as Strasburg improves to 11-0 on the year with a 1.24 ERA and 164 strikeouts. Gwynn has been praised for doing what he can to take care of Strasburg's arm, and pitching him on a regular five day schedule certainly helps. Strasburg has thrown 87 1/3 innings this season.
