Stephen Strasburg Shutdown: Pitcher Has Two More Starts

Stephen Strasburg pitched six scoreless innings on Sunday afternoon at Nationals Park, allowing just two hits while striking out nine Cardinals batters in a 4-3 Washington win over visiting St. Louis. After the game, manager Davey Johnson shed some light on the most popular topic in town, the impending shutdown of Strasburg. Via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post:

Strasburg's last start, barring any rainouts, will be September 12 against the New York Mets. After Sunday's win, Strasburg is 15-6 with a 2.94 ERA in 156.1 innings. His next scheduled start will occur September 7 against the Florida Marlins.
