A Fredericksburg Nationals announcer was having the time of his life doing play-by-play when Stephen Strasburg was pitching on Sunday.

Strasburg was pitching in his second rehab start as he works his way back from another injury. He had to miss most of last season due to Thoracic outlet syndrome surgery.

Here's the video of the announcers coming up with some outstanding phrases when Strasburg gets a strikeout.

It doesn't get any better than this. 

Strasburg pitched five innings and put on a show for everyone in attendance (especially this announcer). He gave up no hits or runs and also struck out six batters.

That's the level that the big club is used to seeing from him, even though he was going up against Low-A hitters.

He's expected to make one more rehab start before being activated off the IL list. 

Hopefully, this announcer will keep these calls up for the rest of the season, even when Strasburg isn't pitching.
