In the excitement over Homer Bailey’s outstanding performance on Wednesday, I want to make one more note on Johnny Cueto’s game the day before. How dominating was Cueto? Going by game score, Cueto’s performance was tied for the most dominating start by a pitcher in the major leagues this year. Cueto tied with … wait for it … Dallas Braden’s perfect game for the Oakland A’s.
Tons of more interesting information about Cueto and his great start collected here by the indispensible Baseball Reference. Awesome.
