Nats Strasburg homers in win, but suffers arm tightness

Quote:
The excitement over Stephen Strasburg's first career home run and another dominant pitching performance was tempered when the young phenom had to leave in the fifth inning of Sunday's series finale against the Orioles because of tightness in his biceps.

Manager Davey Johnson did not appear overly concerned about the injury, and he does not anticipate Strasburg missing his next start. Strasburg said he was simply suffering from some fatigue and regretted he could not go deeper into the game.

Washington pulled away for a 9-3 victory to take the finale of the annual Battle of the Beltway that attracted 41,918 to Nationals Park on Sunday. Strasburg remains the crown jewel of the franchise and has successfully battled back from season-ending Tommy John surgery in 2010. The Nationals just want to make sure he stays healthy.

"The bicep is fine," Strasburg said. "Starting out, I threw a lot of pitches early and then we put up a lot of runs. I got a little tired. [The bicep] got a little tight. It's nothing different than any other outing. It's probably gonna be like this for the rest of the year. It's all part of coming back from Tommy John [surgery]. It's something I have to be smart about."
