Colorado Rockies starting pitcher, Aaron Cook went the full 9 (video) innings in last nights win over the San Diego Padres, throwing just 79 pitches to do so. He allowed only 5 hits and no runs as the Rockies shut out the Padres, ending a 7 game losing streak. He has ended Rockies losing streaks 8 times this season.
Why the feat seems amazing, Cook actually has done it before against the Padres. He beat the Padres last July with 74 pitches over 9 innings, the lowest amount of pitches by a starting pitcher for an entire game since STATS inc. started tracking pitch counts. - Brenton Metzler
