The Toast of The Town

With a 7-1 victory over the Padres on Wednesday night in August (2008), newest Brewer CC Sabathia improved to 7-0 in beer stripes, marking the third-longest undefeated streak for a starting pitcher following a midseason trade in the last 90 years.

Elias Sports Bureau says the only more impressive introductions were Virgil Trucks' 8-0 start with the White Sox after being traded from the St. Louis Browns in 1953 and Doyle Alexander's legendary 9-0 pennant-clinching finish for the Tigers after coming over from the Braves for a young John Smoltz in 1987.

Bet you didn't know that!
