HARRISBURG, Pa. | Washington Nationals top pitching prospect Stephen Strasburg struck out three in 2 1/3 innings Friday night before his second professional start for Double-A Harrisburg was cut short after a rain delay.

He allowed one unearned run against New Britain before the game was delayed by a downpour with one out in the third and the score tied at 1. Rafael Martin came on in relief when play resumed.

It was an interesting night before Strasburg threw a pitch. The start was delayed for more than two hours by rain, then the lights went out during pregame ceremonies.

Strasburg struck out leadoff hitter Ben Revere on three pitches when he finally got to the mound.

The right-hander from San Diego State was the No. 1 overall pick in June’s amateur draft.
