Continuing the trend of everything on June 8, 2010, mentioning Stephen Strasburg, Tampa Bay's Jeff Neimann threw a better game than Strasburg.
Niemann threw a two-hit complete game, striking out six against the Blue Jays.
Still, even Niemann couldn't avoid Strasburg.
"There was a little buzz going aroudn the dugout," Niemmann said on MLB Network. "I heard he put on a show."
What he didn't say was he needed just 114 pitches to throw nine innings -- take that Strasburg and your 94 pitches in seven.
Niemann is 6-0, while Strasburg is a measly 1-0.
