Latos For CY Young!!

Did you know that Mat Latos is leading the Majors in ERA? Not just the National League, but the Majors?? I just discovered this yesterday and thought, where on earth have I been? Mat Latos has been absolutely amazing, but I guess I didn’t realize just how amazing. He sure showed me last night.

We didn’t do much on the offensive side, but we did get a sac-fly from Aaron Cunningham and a double from Adrian Gonzalez for our two runs. Thanks to the pitching, that was all we needed.

Heath Bell closed out the game and we won 2-1!

It was so good to be able to win another game after breaking the losing streak. It was one thing to win to stop the losing streak, but quite another to make sure that we would keep winning. It’s such a relief to have won the series and to have the chance for a sweep tonight! 

Amazing job, Mat. You are incredible.

The kid Cory Luebke is pitching tonight against Chad Billingsley. It’s going to be intense.

GO FIRST-PLACE PADRES!!! SWEEP!!!!

Kaybee, I did the same double-take when I heard that Latos was leading not just the NL, but the entire league in ERA! He had been in the top 5 for a while, but he’s been amazingly consistent for the last 3 months, so in a way, I’m not surprised at all!

Now, in his first full season, he has set a MLB record for consistency- 15 consecutive starts allowing 2 or less ERs. He better be in the discussion for Cy Young this year, or there is no justice in this world!
