Stephen Strasburg brought the heat Wednesday, despite his first major league loss, 1-0 to the Royals. Strasburg lasted 6 innings, allowing 9 hits and a run while striking out 9. Washington's rookie phenom now has 3 games this season with at least 9 Ks and zero walks -- leading the majors. Strasburg has made just 4 MLB starts and is already in great company within our nation's capital. Only Walter Johnson has more games in a single season with those numbers -- and his career-best for a single year is 4. Strasburg's next start is Monday night against the Atlanta Braves on ESPN2 at 7:00pm ET.
