Stephen Strasburg has struck out 11 of the first 21 batters he's faced in the big leagues, but his night may be over after 81 pitches.
If he's taken out, Strasburg may have done everything but get the win.
In the sixth, he struck out the first three batters of the Pirates' order -- Andrew McCutchen, Neil Walker and Lastings Milledge. Strasburg didn't even throw a fastball to get Milledge, who struck out at a changeup in the dirst and was thrown out at first.
Strasburg is on a limit of 90 pitches.
