Lori's A.M. Buzz

Good morning! It’s going to be a sunny day here -- believe it or not, nicer than today's weather in San Francisco, where Lori's vacationing. I'm filling in for her here in D.C., where we'll have perfect weather for Stephen Strasburg’s first pitch with the Nationals tonight.

It’s the biggest day for baseball fans here since the sport returned to Washington in 2005. Strasburg is the most highly touted pitching prospect in at least a generation. Stay on the site for everything you need to know about the game – traffic, score, a live chat during the game, marveling over all of D.C.’s #1 draft picks and (of course) a haiku contest.

And keep an eye on this evening for the latest on the Republican primaries in Virginia.

This morning, we have new details in a family fight that included gloves, 50 rounds of ammo and a surgical cap: Police say a med student snuck into her boyfriend’s son’s home near Damascus and repeatedly tasered his pregnant wife, sending her into labor. Doctors were able to prevent a premature birth, and the victim is back home from the hospital.

Fairfax County is facing a $2 billion transportation shortfall, the Washington Examiner reports.

A 17-year-old was charged in the beating death of a 2-year-old girl in Annapolis.

WAMU reports that a D.C. Council member wants to create a new agency to enforce freedom of information laws, saying requests now can take years.

Coming June 24: The new iPhone: It’s skinny, video-chats, and can make a high-definition movie.

Today, Post reporter Maria Glod will cover a hearing on whether search warrants in the investigation into U.Va. lacrosse player Yeardley Love's death will remain sealed. WTOP has a preview.

Couldn’t get a ticket to the ballgame? Watch Michael Jackson for free tonight, as the U Street Movie Series kicks off, or watch a D.C. ballet student teach Redskins player London Fletcher the dance from “Thriller” online at WJLA.
