In just his second major league start, Luke French faced AL uber-pitcher and likely All Star Game starting pitcher Zach Greinke. The result? 6 1/3 IP, allowing 6 hits and 1 Earned Run on the road to his first Major League Victory. Not bad for a guy who wasn't even in major league camp to start the year. Thanks to his first win, which provided a big Tigers series win over the Royals and kept the surging White Sox at bay, I say, Get That Man A Baseball Card.
Merci beaucoup, Mr. French. Nice to have you aboard.
