49-year old lefty starting pitcher Jamie Moyer was outstanding last Tuesday Night against the San Diego Padres. He threw 7 innings in which he gave up 6 hits, 2 unearned runs and he walked 2 batters while whiffing only 1 batter. Moyer didn’t have a pitch break 80 miles per hour in this game as he is an artist on the mound. Moyer broke major league record that had stood since 1932, as he became the oldest pitcher to win a major league game, besting Jack Quinn by 81 days. Moyer’s win came oddly enough on the 66th anniversary of Quinn’s death in 1946. Moyer has now pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Padres so far this year and he is 1-2 with a 2.55 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. Moyer is now 32 wins away from 300 for a career, and I’m not betting against him getting it.
