Astros 3, Brewers 9: Sabathia’s One-man Show
W: Sabathia (14-8)
L: Wolf (8-11)
C. C. Sabathia pitched another complete game for the Brewers yesterday, improving his Brewers record to 8-0, which looks a lot like the emoticon for the reaction to how awesome Sabathia has been for Milwaukee.
The complete game was his 5th in the NL, moving him one ahead of teammate Ben Sheets. Sheets will try to match that next.
Sabathia also drove in a couple runs to help his offense in scoring 9 runs. Sabathia has been the best mid-season pickup I’ve ever seen. He’s been so good, I don’t doubt that he’ll be in the running for the Cy Young voting, despite having less than half a season.
