The Fynal Out: Glavine gets 300th

Tom GlavineWhat a weekend can do.

Bonds got 755, A-Rod got 500 and Tommy G got No. 300.

Despite the glory that is the long ball (chicks dig it, ya know), I’d make the argument that Glavine’s mark is more impressive.

I’m pretty sure no one would accuse Glavine of juicing. He only plays every five days. And, he’s 41.

Glavine’s the fifth left-hander to accomplish the feat and he’s  third in wins by an active pitcher behind cocky, overpaid Roger Clemens and Greg Maddux.

And on top of all that history, Glavine knocked the Cubs down a peg or two, as Chicago dropped 2 of 3 to N.Y.

Mets 8, Cubs 3: Glavine pitched 6.1 innings, giving up 6 hits and 2 earned in the win. There were both sunshine and clouds for the Cubs, who saw Kerry Wood return to the lineup with an inning of scoreless relief, but also saw The Fons go down with a strained quad. And they dropped a game out of first.

White Sox 3, Tigers 1: In a flashback to last year, Detroit is faltering when it counts most — the team has now dropped 11 of 13. Magglio Ordonez had the only score with a solo home run. Gavin Floyd lowered his ERA by almost 3 points by going 6 innings without giving up a run.

Diamondbacks 3, Dodgers 0: Behind the Tigers, the Dodgers are struggling like no one else. They’ve won just 2 of their last 8 games, and are now 4 games out of first in a division they led most of the season. The D-Backs continued to roll, thanks in large part to Brandon Webb’s shutout which pushed his scoreless innings streak to 24.
