9/22 Linescore of the Day – Greg Maddux

Greg Maddux, Chicago Cubs

8 IP, 0 runs, 0 earned runs, 4 hits, 0 walks, 4 strikeouts, 13th win (with two starts to go)

Greg Maddux has 17 straight seasons in which he has achieved 15 or more victories. Cubs manager Dusty Baker told Maddux he’d rework his rotation to get Greg an extra start so he’d have a shot at 15 wins this year. Maddux rose to the challenge in his first start of his trilogy toward fifteen, shutting out the Milwaukee Brewers for eight innings, 3-0. The 39 year old veteran left the game after throwing just 78 pitches, with a knot in his back. Interesting to note Mddux lowered his ERA to 4.14, which happens to be his birthdate, mine too. GO MADDUX GO!!!
