Strasburg voted Pitcher of the Month for April
Washington Nationals starter and former Torrington Twister Stephen Strasburg was voted the National League Pitcher of the Month for April.
Strasburg went 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA and an NL-leading 34 strikeouts over five April starts, walking only six batters in 32 innings. All five of the 23-year-old right-hander's outings were quality starts, and he allowed only four earned runs. This is the first monthly award of Strasburg's career.
You get the feeling it won't be the last.
