Stat Line Of The Night — 7/5/12 — Jeff Karstens

jefff karstensThe Pittsburgh Pirates are 27-13 at home this season, and with an overall record of 46-36, they currently sit atop the NL Central, two games up on the Cincinnati Reds.  Who would have thought, right?

Their latest victory came last night, as Pirates pitcher Jeff Karstens put forth a dominating effort that saw him go eight shutout innings, allowing only four hits and one walk against.  He would also record eight strikeouts on the night, leading his club to the 2-0 victory.

That win gives the Pirates four in a row.  As for Karstens, he is on a little two-start winning streak of his own, and he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, July 5, 2012.
