This Date in Baseball History – May 10th

On May 10th, 2008, Baseball Hall of Fame 2014 inductee Greg Maddux won his 350th game in Major League Baseball. Maddux went six innings, yielding one run (unearned) on three hits and throwing just 68 pitches in a 3-2 win for the San Diego Padres over the Colorado Rockies at PETCO Park. He became the ninth pitcher in the history of MLBl to reach the milestone.

2008 was the last season in the Major Leagues for the four-time Cy Young Award winner, with “The Professor” finishing 8-13 with a 4.22 ERA for the Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers. Maddux ended his final season in the playoffs with the Dodgers, throwing four scoreless innings in three appearances (one in the NLDS against the Chicago Cubs, two in the NLCS against Philadelphia).

Mick Gillispie told the story of the day and gave more of Maddux’s Hall of Fame career numbers in the bottom of the sixth of Tennessee’s 10-6 win over the Jackson Generals Saturday night.
