Washburn one-hits the Orioles… and wins

The Seattle Mariners defeated the Orioles last night behind a classic one-hitter pitched by Jarrod Washburn.  The good pitching by Washburn was not necessarily out of character this season.  The 9-0 win was.

After a few iffy seasons, Washburn has pitched well in 2009.  He sports a 3.08 allowing 7.7 hits per 9 innings and has a WHIP of 1.10.  Much improved compared to the last few years.  Unfortunately for the Mariners, they haven’t been able to capitalize on his success on the mound.  Despite the fancy-dancy stats, Washburn only has a 5-6 record. 

Some are rumoring that Washburn will be tradebait considering this is his last year of his contract.  The LA Dodgers are considered high on that list.
