With San Diego State leading 2-0 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Stephen Strasburg suffered a lower-back cramp and was forced to leave the game. "It just cramped up on me. Obviously, you sweat a little bit out here in Texas, and I wasn't keeping enough fluids in me ---- that's all," Strasburg said. "I was trying to fight through it, but it was kind of at the point where it was cutting off my delivery." Said SDSU coach Tony Gwynn: "I think he'll be fine and I don't think it's anything major. We saw him wince, and he said his back was tight." Strasburg had six strikeouts and gave up three hits.
