Matt Moore: Tampa Bay Rays becomes youngest lefty to start 8-0 since 1917

Matt Moore is making quite a name for himself early in the 2013 season. The 23-year-old lefty improved to 8-0 on Sunday as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-1.

Matt MooreIn doing so, Moore became the youngest left-handed pitcher to start a season 8-0 since Babe Ruth did it as a 22-year-old in 1917. Fun fact: Ruth made just $3,500 that year, and went 24-13 with a 2.01 ERA.

Moore went seven innings and allowed one run on five hits, with one walk and three strikeouts. For the season Moore boasts an ERA of 2.29 and a WHIP of 1.09. He has allowed 34 hits, 26 walks and seven home runs, while striking out 54 in 55 innings. Perhaps the most remarkable statistic is that he’s earned a decision in each of his eight starts.

The former eighth-round pick’s eight wins also lead all of baseball.

Any time someone does something that hasn’t been accomplished since before World War I ended, it’s absolutely worth discussing. In just his second season Moore is already leading up to the hype that developed around him during his days in the minors.

As a rookie in 2012 Moore turned in a decent season. He made 31 starts and posted an 11-11 record, with a 3.81 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. He threw 177.1 innings, and struck out 175 while walking 81. He also allowed 158 hits, 85 runs (75 earned) and issued 81 walks. Considering the competition he faced in the American League East, that’s a pretty solid rookie campaign.

Now Moore has morphed into a reliable guy who, when paired with 2012 American League Cy Young Award winner David Price, gives the Rays an outstanding one-two punch at the top of their rotation.

While Price has struggled to open the season (1-4, 5.24 ERA) he’ll eventually come around. Until then, Moore is holding things down as the team’s ace.
