San Diego State junior right-hander Stephen Strasburg's next start has been moved up a day to Thursday at UNLV.
Strasburg originally was to go Friday against the Rebels and junior left-hander Nate Solow was to throw in Thursday's opener of the three-game series in Las Vegas. But Solow pitched Sunday against UC Davis and is unavailable.
Strasburg (6-0) has a 1.49 ERA and leads the nation with 94 strikeouts (with 10 walks) in 48.1 innings pitched. He struck out 14 against UNLV in a 4-3 Aztecs victory four weeks ago at Tony Gwynn Stadium, starting SDSU on a three-game sweep of the Rebels.
The No. 18-ranked Aztecs play a nonconference game at Long Beach State tonight at 6:30, then hop on a bus tomorrow for UNLV.
SDSU (22-11, 6-3 MWC) are tied atop the MWC standings with TCU. UNLV (15-16, 4-5) is in fifth place.
