Elimination Game Records

Stephen Strasburg has already started one elimination game in his career, recording the win on 7 innings, 12 strikeouts in Game 4 of the 2017 NLDS (although his team would go on to lose the series in Game 5).

Mike Foltynewicz's only start in an elimination game came in last year's NLDS Game 4, where he allowed 1 run in 4 innings in a no decision; the Braves would fall to the Dodgers in that game.

He will have an interesting case if he leads the league in IP, Ks, and Wins and is 3rd in WAR, within spitting distance of 1st.

Only the 3rd best starter on the Nationals?  ERA+ thinks so ...

But a solid season has made the decision on whether to take his $75MM over the next 3 years, or opt out, a pretty easy one given today's enviro for starters.

If he stays healthy ... and this is Steven Strasburg ... should easily rack up his highest K total for his career.

Struck out nine in 6 2/3 innings to reach 1500 K faster (fewer innings) than any pitcher ever.

I wonder how long that's going to last.

Chris Sale had the previous record. 1,290 innings.

Tossed a beauty against... the Fish.

But stats are stats. 8 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 11 SO, O R. Will be in the black after today's feed.
