words // Luis Sanchez

After a brief stint in the big leagues back in 2010 and a year-long recovery from Tommy-John surgery, Washington Nationals phenom Stephen Strasburg was finally ready take the mound and showcase all the talent Nationals fans had been patiently waiting on for many years.

In his first Major League start since the surgery, Strasburg was every bit as impressive as he’s ever been in the past. Facing a strong Los Angeles Dodgers line-ip Strasburg was able to carry the load for five scoreless innings, allowing only two hits. Strasburg also retired as many as 11 hitters in a row, had no walks and struck out four batters after throwing 40 out of 56 pitches for strikes.

Enjoy a look at Strasburg’s return below, as well as the rest of the action around the league as part of Eastbay’s latest MLB Watch.
