Well he didn't win last night, but Chris Rusin has been doing pretty good since he got called up.
Which has actually been since late July (feels like he only just got here) - remember the nice win against the Cards on Aug 9?
He's 2-4 with a 2.85 ERA in 2013.
Last night he went 7 innings with 4 hits and 2 runs against what's supposed to be a lefty-bashing Pirates lineup.
And Mr. Sveum says maybe he's pitching himself into the possibility of 2014.
KInda unexpectedly cool.
And I saw in the box that his name is "C RUSIN".
Pretty sure that had to be some kind of nickname for this kid growing up, right?
