Stat Line of the Night — 6/30/2013 — Justin Masterson
At the halfway mark of the 2013 MLB season, you probably never would have imagined that Cleveland Indians pitcher Justin Masterson would be leading the entire league in complete-game shutouts, but he is thanks to yesterday’s lights-out performance against the Chicago White Sox.
Masterson was masterful, allowing just six hits and one walk while striking out eight during the Indians’ 4-0 victory over their division rivals.
That win was Masterson’s third in three starts against the White Sox this year, and his second of the complete-game shutout variety. He is now an impressive 10-6 on the season with a 3.48 ERA, and he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, June 30, 2013.
