O'Connor: Strasburg's debut "doesn't surprise me'
Even with an NCAA super regional this weekend, Virginia baseball Coach Brian O'Connor found time on Tuesday to watch some of Stephen Strasburg's first start with the Washington Nationals.
O'Connor, who coached the Cavaliers to a win in Strasburg's final collegiate game, caught the final two innings of Strasburg's debut. Strasburg struck out all six batters he faced.
"Doesn't surprise me," O'Connor said. "The kid's got unbelievable ability. The only thing you didn't know was how was he going to handle that stage. How was he going to handle all the pressure of, here's Stephen Strasburg's first start. And the guy handled it like a winner. It was remarkable to watch."
