Stat Line Of The Night — 9/19/12 — Kris Medlen
The dominance of Kris Medlen continues.
In his first nine starts for the Atlanta Braves this season, Medlen was a perfect 7-0 with two no-decisions, and he hadn’t allowed more than two earned runs against in any of those contests.
As for last night’s game against the Miami Marlins, Medlen delivered the type of performance that we have come to expect from him, as he allowed only four hits and no earned runs against while striking out six batters over eight innings of work. That outing was good enough to bump Medlen’s record to 8-0 as a starter this season, as the Braves emerged with the 3-0 victory.
Medlen has been as close as you’ll get to a sure thing these days, as the Braves have now won in each of his last 21 starts. That stat alone is enough to earn him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Wednesday, September 19, 2012.
