The 2nd Coming of Jeezus: Game 64

Sunday afternoon, Stephen Strasburg had his 2nd start as a Washington National. Strasburg didn't quite look as dominating as in game 1, but none the less, his line was impressive. 5 1/3 innings, 1 run, 2 hits, 8 strikeouts. One number vastly different than in game 1 was his walks. He gave up none on Tuesday against Pittsburgh. He gave up 5 on Sunday. He was having trouble with the mound, visibly slipping all over the place.

Perhaps the best moment of the day, though, is Adam Dunn's collision with rookie catcher Carlos Santana at home plate. Santana was blocking the plate with no throw coming in, and the 6' 7" former lineman made Carlos pay. The clip is below:
