UPDATE: Strasburg allowed four runs — one earned — over five innings and tallied eight strikeouts against two walks. According to the AP he was clocked consistently in the 97-98 MPH range.
Chapman tossed 4 2/3 innings down in Louisville, fanning nine batters and allowing one earned run on five hits. The Cincinnati Enquirer’s John Fay says four of those hits were infield singles. Not a bad start for both.
