“The Rocket” Roger Clemens thinks he can make a comeback to Major League Baseball.

Pitching for the first time in 5 years, the 50-year-old Clemens threw 3.1 scoreless innings last Saturday night for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent Atlantic League.

Clemens pitched against the Bridgeport Bluefish and allowed one hit without a walk and threw 37 pitches. He struck out former MLB outfielder Joey Gathright to start the game.

The fireballer’s next start will be on September 7 for the Skeeters.

Clemens has Hall of Fame numbers no doubt, 354 wins 184 losses, a 3.12 ERA with 4,672 strikeouts. He pitched for Boston, Toronto, the Yankees twice and Houston.

Clemens was an 11-time All-Star, 2-time All-Star, with 7 Cy Young Awards and was named to the MLB All-Century team.

Strasburg passes second Triple-A start:No hits in 6 innings against Norfolk

compiled from staff, wire and Syracuse Chiefs news

The Washington Nationals appointed “ace” pitcher of the future, Stephen Strasburg had a successful second start in Triple-A Wednesday night against the Norfolk Tides: six innings pitched, of no-hit ball in a 4-0 win for the Syracuse Chiefs.

The 21-year-old Strasburg threw 79 pitches, 55 strikes, struck out seven, and walked one in facing 19 Norfolk batters, one over the minimum, before leaving without allowing a hit. In two International League starts since Friday, he has struck out 13 and allowed one hit in 12 innings.

He went to three-ball counts on just four batters and lowered his earned-run average to 1.06 in seven minor-league starts. He finished his impressive stint by getting leadoff hitter Joey Gathright to swing very badly at a low-80′s mph curve ball on an 0-2 pitch.

A franchise-record crowd of 13, 777 turned out for Strasburg debut last Friday night, May 7, but with gametime temperatures hovering around the 50 degree mark on Wednesday night, only 6,702 fans turned out to see the Nationals phenom.

Washington is expected to bring Strasburg in early June. He arrived from San Diego State University, signed a $15.1 million, four-year contract, which is a record for an amateur player, last August.
