The Washington National’s pitching phenom, Stephen Strasburg made his big-league debut. The results were jaw-dropping. In the 7 innings he pitched, he struck out 14! He walked 0. He gave up four hits, including a two-run homer, but he took the win, 5-2. The kid struck out each of the Pittsburg Pirates starters. He struck out the final 7 batters he faced. No Nationals pitcher has ever struck out so many. Few rookies have put on such a dominating performance in his first game.
Strasburg lives up to the hype
