Heading to Reading, Pennsylvania tonight to watch the Harrisburg Senators face off against the Reading Phillies after yesterday’s game was rained out (again!).
It will be the second road start for Stephen Strasburg and will be interesting to see how he does against a team he just faced in his most recent outing.
There has been talk that this week and next might be Strasburg’s final few starts in Double-A before a possible transfer to Triple-A and Syracuse, New York.
Game time is 6:35pm. It is Game 1 of a scheduled doubleheader.
If you have a question you would like to ask Strasburg, shoot me a comment and I will see if I can ask him after his outing.
The pitching depth that Senators starter Jeff Mandel told me about last week continues to be evident (although this move is likely related to trickle down for the Jason Marquis injury and Luis Atilano call up). Lefthander Aaron Thompson has been called up to Syracuse and Erik Arnesen got the start yesterday as the Sens blasted New Britain 15-5.
Danny Espinosa and Chris Marrero had big games as the offense finally broke through for 19 hits. Espinosa and Marrero combined for six hits and five RBIs. Brad Coon, Jhonatan Solano, and Michael Martinez all had three hits. Five Sens had at least two hits in the run explosion.
