We got sidetracked during a marathon two and a half hour draft conference call tonight when we noticed Stephen Strasburg had a no-hitter going against Air Force in the seventh inning. Now, following a no-hitter via GameTracker isn’t the most exciting method, but does add a little extra suspense when you’re yelling at the computer screen, "C’mon—update already!"
It was a storybook ending to what was likely his final start at Tony Gwynn Stadium. In front of a record crowd of 3,337, Strasburg struck out the side in the top of the ninth inning to notch his first collegiate no-hitter.
All in all, Strasburg struck out 17—the second-highest total for him this year—and walked two. On the season, he’s now 11-0, 1.24 with 164 strikeouts and just 17 walks over 87 innings.
