Stephen Strasburg has 27 strikeouts this season. That number takes on new significance when you realize, he's only started two games.
The pre-season All-American whiffed 16 batters in a 5-2 win over Nevada Thursday night at Tony Gwynn Stadium. His first pitch of the game registered 99 mph on the sea of radar guns held by professional scouts in the stands. A few tosses later, he hit that mythical 100. That is Nolan Ryan territory.
Strasburg has two of the Aztecs' three wins this season. San Diego State hosts Pacific for a doubleheader on Saturday.
