TBS shifts schedule to show MLB phenom Stephen Strasburg


“Sunday MLB on TBS” has altered is schedule for this Sunday, June 13th, to replace the Philadelphia Phillies at Boston Red Sox game with the Washington Nationals playing the Indians at Cleveland. That’s because it is scheduled to be the second start for rookie Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg.

In his debut June 8th against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Strasburg struck out 14 batters in seven innings in a 5-2 Nationals victory. The rookie phenom was the first pick in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft and reportedly signed a record-breaking $15.1 million contract with the Nationals.

Dick Stockton (play-by-play), Buck Martinez (analyst) and Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley (analyst) will call the action Sunday for TBS. The game is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm ET, a half hour earlier than the previously scheduled Philadelphia-Boston game.
