TBS Puts Cameras On Strasburg In Second Start This Sunday


TBS is using pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg as a pinch-hitter for its coverage of the Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies game this Sunday.
Sunday MLB on TBS will present the Washington Nationals-Cleveland Indians contest on June 13 at 1 p.m. in lieu of the previously announced Bosox-Phils battle, as Strasburg is scheduled to take the hill for the Nats.
TBS will also add two super slo-mo cameras for the telecast: a centerfield camera and a right field line camera.
In his MLB debut, Strasburg struck out 14 batters in 7 innings, walking none, in the Nationals' 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Regional sports network MASN shattered its Nationals viewership record with its June 8 telecast of Strasburg's start, averaging a 7.1 rating in the Washington DMA, translating into some 165,000 households, according to Nielsen data. The game, which easily eclipsed the 2.0 marks earned by the Nats in a pair of contests against the Mets in May, scored a 4.4 rating against adults 25 to 54, another record for the RSN.
