A Win For the Kid

What a great way to get your first major league win. Chad Billingsley went 7 strong innings while allowing no runs. He now has a 3.66 ERA for the year. This kid is getting better from game to game. Unfortunately, he continues to allow the lead batter on. Nevertheless, he was able to get out of some jams in the 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th innings. Chad did a great job of keeping his composure in the 5th inning when he got DaVanon, Byrnes and Gonzales to end a late game threat with men on 1st and 2nd base. He pitched strong, and he pitched with confidence. I really like the stuff he brings to the table, and I expect that he may be our biggest surprise of the 2nd half. Billingsley is a keeper and could very well blossom into a front line pitcher. I'm crossing my fingers in hope that maybe, just maybe, Chad Billingsley will become the pitcher we are looking for in this seasons playoff push trade market.
