Strasburg has off night, but keeps team in game

compiled from staff, wire and Syracuse Chiefs news

In the minor leagues, Stephen Strasburg can have an off night, not have his best stuff and still have a chance to win a game or even give his team a quality start.

Strasburg, who had not allowed a run in winning his first three Triple-A starts for the Syracuse Chiefs, went five innings Monday night against the Toledo Mud Hens, allowing five hits and two runs, one earned. He left with the score tied at 2-2, however, his team won 6-3. He threw 52 pitches, 36 for strikes, with no walks and five strikeouts.

The franchise right-hander had allowed only four hits and no runs in 18 1/3 innings in his first three starts. In 45 1/3 innings in eight starts between Double-A Harrisburg and Syracuse, he has struck out 54 and  yielded just 22 hits and 10 walks. Strasburg has an overall ERA of 0.99; 0.39 with the Chiefs.

Strasburg, the number 1 pick in the 2009 amateur draft by the Washington Nationals, was finally touched for an unearned run in the third, ending his scoreless  streak at 20 1/3 innings at the minors’ highest level. Deik Scram hit a grounder over first base and down the right-field line for a triple and scored on a passed ball.

Strasburg, who threw 92 pitches in his previous outing, was not very happy when he was pulled and neither was the crowd of 13,288, the second-largest in franchise history behind the 13,766 that turned out for his Triple-A debut on May 7. Most headed for the exits when they knew his night was done.

Strasburg, who signed a $15.1 million, four-year contract with the Nationals, is expected to make one more start for Syracuse before being promoted to Washington.

Once again, Stephen Strasburg had another dominating performance, allowing two hits and striking out nine in 6 1/3 scoreless innings of pitching for Triple-A Wednesday night.

Strasburg, the top pick in the 2009 draft by the Washington Nationals, walked two against Rochester while improving to 3-0 for the Chiefs. The 21-year-old right-hander has not allowed a run in 18 1/3 innings at the minors’ highest level.

His fastball topped out at 99 mph four times and finished strong, striking out six of the final seven batters he faced.

Strasburg received a standing ovation from the Frontier Field crowd of 12,590 as he walked off the field after striking out Red Wings third baseman Danny Valencia, which he failed to acknowledge and was then booed.

Stephen threw a total 92 pitches, the most of his brief professional career, including 60 for strikes.

His hitless streak ended at 10 2/3 innings when Trevor Plouffe reached on an infield single in the third inning.

The two-time All-American from San Diego State continues to be a big draw each time he pitches, attracting nearly 8,000 more fans than the Red Wings have averaged at home in 2010. It was the eighth-largest regular season baseball crowd in the ballpark’s 14 -year history.

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.

#1 pick Strasburg moved up to Triple-A Syracuse by Washington

Stephen Strasburg dominated Double-A so much that now he has been promoted to move up to Triple-A Syracuse.

Triple-A will be more challenging. He’ll see more veteran and seasoned hitters, tighter strike zones and he’ll play with better players overall.

The Washington Nationals promoted their number 1 overall draft pick to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, keeping him on a pace for his major league debut in the next few weeks or even a month.

Strasburg went 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA in five starts with Double-A Harrisburg, striking out an Eastern League-high 27 and walking six in 22 innings. He ranked first in the league in strikeout-to-walk ratio and strikeouts per nine innings.

Strasburg will make his International League debut Friday when Syracuse hosts the Gwinnett Braves. He will throw 85-90 pitches or six innings, whichever comes first.

The Nationals are being very cautious with their prized pitching prospect, who signed a record four-year, $15.1 million contract last year. Also, for contractual reasons, Washington can save money down the road by postponing Straburg’s major league debut until as long as they can, but rumors around baseball is that they’ll bring him up June.

Stephen Strasburg overshadows Brad Lidge in AA game in Reading

It was the phenom against a World Series champion closer.

The winner was the phenom, Stephen Strasburg pitched five no-hit innings in his fourth professional start and drove in the game’s only run as the Double-A Harrisburg Senators shutout the Reading Phillies 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Philadelphia closer Brad Lidge, a World Series hero in 2008, was making a rehab appearance for Reading, but the rookie Strasburg was the star of the show.

The San Diego State product retired the first 13 batters he faced in the first game of a doubleheader, striking out six. The only batter to reach base against Strasburg in five innings was Michael Spidale, who struck out swinging in the fifth but advanced to first on a passed ball by the catcher.

Strasburg, the Washington Nationals’ number 1 pick during the summer of 2009, threw just 64 pitches. He upped his record to 3-0 and lowered his ERA to 0.52. Strasburg has struck out 23 and walked just three batters in 17.1 innings pitched in 2010.

The 21-year-old is showing that he can hit. He is 2-for-6 with 2 RBI’s and singled in teammate Sean Rooney in the fifth inning.

His mound opponent, Brad Lidge has been on the Phillies disabled list since spring training from offseason surgery on his knee and elbow, is trying to get back to the major leagues.

Lidge, who is 33, struck out four in two innings pitched. He has had eight rehab appearances since April 10 and second with Reading.
