Strasburg pitches 3 scoreless innings in latest rehabilitation start
WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) ' Washington Nationals star Stephen Strasburg pitched three scoreless innings Friday night in his latest minor league rehabilitation start.
Strasburg gave up two infield hits, struck out five and walked none for Potomac in the Class A Carolina League. He was scheduled to pitch just three innings against Myrtle Beach.
Strasburg's 33rd and final pitch was hit hard up the middle by J.R. Higley. Strasburg deftly snared the comebacker and tossed to first base for the out.
This was Strasburg's second start since Tommy John surgery sidelined him last season. In his first rehab outing on Aug. 7, the former overall No. 1 draft pick struck out four and allowed a home run in 1 2-3 innings for Class A Hagerstown.
