No one ever, ever in the history of all the universe will win 300 games again!
Except Billerica's own Tommy Glavine.
NEW YORK (AP) -- This was a mismatch.
Pitching with the savvy accumulated in 19 major league seasons, Tom Glavine baffled the young Pittsburgh Pirates with an assortment of off-speed pitches in a 6-0 victory Thursday night. He allowed three hits and struck out 10 over seven innings for the 279th victory of his career.
Afterward, he considered his condition and decided it wasn't too bad for a 40-year-old.
''I feel good physically,'' he said. ''Everything's comfortable. You should pitch well when that's the case. It's fun. I enjoy pitching. There's a bunch of things I can do to get guys out. It's a continuation comfort-wise of where I was the second part of last season.''
