Sometimes you just keep seeing the same phrase over and over and don't notice until you realize it's not just deja vu. The phrase I heard a couple of times in the last week was "attempting to become the majors' first 10-game winner."
Detroit's Max Scherzer was the last pitcher to attempt to win his 10th game of the season -- and like the three other guys to try, he failed. So far, a total of four pitchers -- Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Jon Lester and Scherzer -- have had a chance at picking up their 10th win of the season. Halladay hasn't lost in his two tries, but he doesn't have a decision in either start.
As a whole, pitchers going for their 10th win of the season are 0-3 with a 4.59 ERA -- that ERA is skewed a bit by Scherzer's stinker last night against the Dodgers in which he gave up six runs on nine hits in six innings in Los Angeles.@cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
