Arrieta Records League Leading 9th Win

Jake Arrieta Jake Arrieta #34 of the Baltimore Orioles pitches against the Washington Nationals at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on May 20, 2011 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Former Frog ace Jake Arrieta picked up his 9th win last night, which ties him for the major league lead with 8 other pitchers, including such names as Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, CC Sabathia, Justin Verlander, and few more. Although the rest of his numbers don't exactly stack up with the rest of those guys (he's only gone more than 6 innings in 3 of his 16 starts and has an ERA of 4.50), it's great to see another former Frog producing at a professional level. Let's hope he keeps this up for the rest of the season, and maybe even earns himself an All-Star appearance. Oh, and to follow up on Lyle's post yesterday about seeking his first career hit- he got it, as well as his first RBI on a bloop single to right field in the first. Congrats, Jake, and keep making us proud.

Also, with the news of Albert Pujols being out for an extended period of time, keep an eye on the possibility of Matt Carpenter being called back up again, although I really have no idea. We will let you know if we find anything out.
