Stephen Strasburg 5th Inning

8:10- 56 pitches through 4 innings. 1-1 pitch to Ronny Cedeno flys by him at 97 MPH.

8:10- K #7 comes fairly easily as Strasburg continues to move quickly. Positive note: he looks composed after giving up the HR.

8:11- Gets up 0-2 quickly on catcher Jaramillo. Should be pointed out that Bob Costas is comparing Strasburg to Walter Johnson. Already?

8:12- Ground ball to Adam Dunn at first and he takes it himself to record out number 2. I think he should have flipped that to Strasburg but he made the out anyways.

8:13- 1-2 now to Jeff Karstens and the crowd is back to early inning levels. He fouls one off.

8:14- Called strike 3 on Karstens and this ump is INTO it. Animated calls all around. Through 5 innings, Strasburg has 8 K’s and only a small blip on his radar screen in the form of the Young 2 run HR.
