Make no mistake about it.  Alex Cobb of the Tampa Bay Rays is no David Price.  Not even close.  But he may someday be a special talent like his team’s ace currently is, and yesterday’s game certainly appeared to be a step in the right direction.

Cobb, 24, delivered what was probably the most impressive performance of his career, as the second-year pitcher recorded his the first complete-game shutout of his Major League career.  He allowed only four hits and two walks in the process, while striking out eight, en route to the 5-0 victory.

With the win, Cobb improves his record to 8-8, while lowering his ERA to 4.32.  He still has a long way to go if he wants to earn a place at the top of a team’s pitching rotation, but yesterday’s performance was a start, and it earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, August 23, 2012.
