Yeah, I was glad he was able to get the W after such a great start, including the Houdini job with the 1st & 3rd no-outs jam in the 8th. He's unbeaten in 15 straight starts, yet only 7 wins with EIGHT no decisions...and only one of those did he pitch poorly and the offense bailed him out. All the rest just no run support, he's the new Matt Cain.
The schedule gets FUGLY real quick after the M's...@ BALT, @ DET, then TB and TEX at home, a total of 13 games. The sticks need to get hot because you just can't count on the pitching to limit those teams to 2-3 runs every night. A sweep of the Mariners would be nice, 2/3 is practically a must.
