Just had to post this... young Mat Latos, now pitching for the San Diego Padres after a very short stint in the minors, pitched in San Francisco today against the Giants. This kid is good, I'm tellin' ya.
His game today? He pitched the complete game, struck out 6, no walks, no runs, allowed 1 hit. AND... he got the game winning single and batted in Lance Zawadzki (another former Eugene Emerald, I have his photos as well) for the game's only run.
Not bad Mat! Keep going buddy.
