Strasburg ERA below 4.00!


Stras pitched very well yesterday, lowering his era to 3.42.  Though he gave up 2 runs in the first inning, he shut down the Dodgers after that into the 8th inning.  meanwhile his teammates, including Wilson Ramos—back from the DL, took a lead they would not relinquish.  Grinding through adversity has not been his strong suit, but Stras is improving on that.  Tom Boswell has a great article (again) in today’s Post on this.  He compares Stras with Clayton Kershaw.

Meanwhile, the guy who played 2B for the Orioles yesterday has a batting average 70 points below that of Steve Lombardozzi, and it is Lombo who has been sent down to AAA!  Go figure.
