On June 23 2010 — Even when he loses, Nationals super-rookie Stephen Strasburg is almost untouchable. The Royals only score one run and strike out 9 times in 6 innings, but still hand him his first career loss, 1 – 0, behind Brian Bannister’s outstanding start. Strasburg collects his first hit and now has 41 strikeouts against only 5 walks in his first four starts.
