Stephen Strasburg doesn’t always put up ridiculous K numbers in outings, but when he does he prefers to do it against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
PITTSBURGH—What’s the definition of the word “dominance”? Stephen Strasburg. The right-hander was almost unhittable as the Nationals edged the Pirates, 4-2, at PNC Park on Thursday night.
In his six innings on the mound, Strasburg struck out 13 batters. At one point he struck out seven straight hitters, which tied a franchise record. He also accomplished the same feat against the Pirates during his Major League debut on June 8, 2010, a game in which he fanned 14 over seven innings.
Be sure to click through to watch the highlight reel of Strasburg’s strikeouts. The called strike that got Kevin Correia (bottom of the 3rd inning, it’s 7th in the video sequence) is quite possibly the sickest curveball anyone has thrown in the National League so far this year.
