Scoreless Streak Newsbeat

Stephen Strasburg extends scoreless streak, overcoming cramps to beat Marlins

MIAMI — In the sixth inning of the Washington Nationals’ 2-1 win Tuesday over the Miami Marlins, Stephen Strasburg fell behind Giancarlo Stanton 3-0. Strasburg was also experiencing calf cramps at the time, a minor problem he cannot seem to shake, and it all combined to create a rather discouraging set of circumstances for the Nationals right-hander.

But Strasburg fought back into the count against the man on a mighty home run tear and induced a groundout. He then struck out Christian Yelich on his way to completing his 26th consecutive scoreless inning — all while leaping awkwardly off the mound after every pitch, bitten by a cramp in his calf that eventually forced him from the game.

No Nationals pitcher has ever had a scoreless streak as long as Strasburg’s 26 innings. No homegrown Nationals pitcher has been as consistently dominant as Strasburg has been when he is healthy — or even when he is not-quite-healthy, as he was Tuesday night.
