Stephen Strasburg's Major League debut was a great one. The young flamethrower struck out 14, in a National's 5-2 victory over the Pirates, setting a Nationals record.
MLB.com calls him Mr. Precedent, but can Strasburg continue pitching well? After all, the Nationals were only facing the Pittsburgh Pirates, a team with a 23-35 record.
Strasburg's next test will most likely be against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
