I’m happy for T.J. McFarland.
Though most of the celebration last night seemed to be centered around a statistic that I personally believe doesn’t properly highlight the importance of his start, his first win as a starting pitcher, I’m glad to see him being recognized by his teammates. Who says baseball players don’t still value the win?
In his second career spot start, McFarland went 5 innings, surrendering two earned runs on seven hits. He issued no free passes and fanned two, throwing 68 pitches, 47 for strikes.
After the game, he was honored with a pie to the face.
