Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg had a night on Thursday against the Atlanta Braves in Atlanta, Georgia. He helped the Nationals win 13-4.

Strasburg helped himself with a home run. In fact, he went 3-3 with a home fun and five RBIs. Yes, five RBIs.

He became the first pitcher since 2010, who had a home run in a contest, according to ESPN. And an extra base hit in the same game.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, he’s just the second pitcher in the last 45-years to have three hits and five RBIs or more. Micah Owings previously accomplished this with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

On August 18, 2007, he had four hits in the game, including two home runs. He also had six RBIs.

Stats by STATS also say that only three players have accomplished what Strasburg did last night, including having at least seven strikeouts, on the mound, since 1920. Besides Owings, Wes Ferrell also accomplished this feat in August 12th, 1936.
