"Heading to Reading, Pennsylvania Monday night to watch the Harrisburg Senators face off against the Reading Phillies. It is the second road start for Stephen Strasburg and will be interesting to see how he does against a team he just faced in his most recent outing."

Washington Nationals: Scott Olsen Breaks MLB Gameday? " NatsStats - Jay Eward

"Scott Olsen pitched a 7 inning shutout against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, April 25. The official MLB gameday tally, (and thus Pitch F/X tally) showed that Olsen threw 99 pitches. The breakdown – 32 fastballs, 10 sliders, and 57 change ups. What? Did Scott Olsen really throw 57 change-ups? It’s not likely."
