Strasburg –

Stephen Strasburg made his major league debut with the Nationals and lived up to expectations.  Strasburg pitched seven innings and allowed only two runs in a 5-2 victory.  Strasburg rang up 14 strikeouts and set the Nationals team record for strikeouts in a game.  That total also placed him third all-time for strikeouts in a major league debut.  At 21, Strasburg can be the franchise building player that the Nationals so desperately need these days.
