ST. LOUIS (BaseballStL) – Starter Lance Lynn just keeps working wonders in each of his starts this season and his start against the Chicago White Sox was no different.
Lynn joined New York Mets starter R.A. Dickey as the first ten-game winner in the Majors this season after allowing only three hits and one walk with a career-high 12 strikeouts over 7.1 innings pitched in Wednesday’s 1-0 victory.
Despite leading the NL in run support average (7.87), Lynn needed the offense to score just one run en route to the shutout victory over the White Sox.
In his last two starts, the right-hander has struck out 23 batters in 13.1 innings pitched and lowered his ERA from 2.66 to 2.42 after Wednesday’s performance.
At this point, Lynn is likely to join Tony La Russa in Kansas City for the All-Star Game.
