As his teammates prepared for their flight to Cincinnati, Strasburg addressed his start and, particularly, his final inning.

“Thanks Stras,” called left-hander Gio Gonzalez from a few stalls down. “For putting us all on the edge of our seats and then striking a guy out.”

“Good night to have a team meeting, isn’t it?” his manager joked. “Next time Stras pitches, I’ll probably have that other meeting.”
