Wilson Valdez and Babe Ruth

May 26, 2011, 4:04 AM EDT

How about this stat from ESPN’s Steve Berthiaume, “Wilson Valdez is the first player to start game in the field and earn the win as a pitcher, since Babe Ruth on October 1, 1921.”

Not bad company, Wilson.

Valdez also threw more strikes (5) than Phillies reliever J.C. Romero last night (4). Fun fact via John Finger.
