POTG: P Greg Maddux (6.1 IP, 1R, 4H, 2BB, 1K, Quality Start, W [#319, gains sole position of #15])
I guess I just hadn’t looked at the numbers yet this year, but Maddux is now only 10 wins away from moving into 10th place all time. I’m of the school that pitching wins are a inefficent way to measure pitchers, but that’s still quite cool.
I think he left because he was tired (87 pitches is about where you’d expect him for a 1st start) and not hurt, but I guess we find out soon.
Runner Ups: Opening Day Baseball In Wrigley, NEIFI (3H, 1R), D-Lee (HR , 2R, RBI, BB), SS Ronny Cedeno (2B, 3B, R, RBI), Randy Hundley in the radio booth, LF Matt Murton (outfield assist, DP), Bobby Howry (1.2IP, 3K)
This was all kinds of awesome. First time they’ve won an opening day in a great many years. 2:13 is even shorter than the Cougars game! This is all sorts of odd.
Spot starting Neifi here and it working out wonderful is a point for Dusty. He should get credit for it.
Tommorow’s start is a turning point – if we can get a win out of Marshall, we may have something here.
(let’s go bulls)
