East Texan Sets Major League Baseball Record [VIDEO]
Cleveland Indians pitcher, and former Whitehouse Wildcat, Josh Tomlin set a Major League Baseball record over the weekend by pitching at least five innings in each of his 29 appearances to start his career. Tomlin is the only major league pitcher since 1919 to do it. Pretty impressive.
Tomlin pitched 7 innings against the New York Yankees on Monday night. He gave up only 2 runs and struck out 5. He actually carried a no-hitter into the 7th before former Texas Ranger, Mark Teixeira, singled to lead off the inning.
Tomlin ended up finishing the 7th, leaving to a standing ovation from the sell-out crowd in Cleveland. His record is now 10-4 on the season.
