Plenty of rarities in Perdomo's big game

Luis Perdomo pitched a complete game in the Padres' 3-1 win at Miami on Sunday. From the Elias Sports Bureau:

  • Perdomo started the game with a 6.24 ERA. He's the first pitcher since 2010 to earn a complete-game win with a season ERA above 6.00 over 100 or more innings. The last pitcher to do so was Brad Bergesen of the Orioles.
  • Perdomo is only the second rookie in the last 20 years to induce as many as five double-play groundouts in a game. The first was Billy Buckner of the D-backs in 2009.

Tony Gwynn excelled on a struggling squad

Gwynn hit .370 in 1987, leading the major leagues with his best average in a season at that point in his career. He also led the majors with 218 hits, made the All-Star team and won both a Silver Slugger and Gold Glove that season... in which the Padres finished an NL-worst 65-97. Great players on bad teams
