Glad We Didn't Hold Our Breath

Congratulations to future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux for finally getting enough run support to halt a career-worst 14-start winless skid with an 8-5 victory over Micah Owings and the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night.

The 42-year-old San Diego Padres righty, who had gone 0-5 with 9 no-decisions since his 350th win on May 10th, passed up Hall of Famer Phil Niekro for 10th place on the all-time strikeout list. He fanned four and walked no one, scattering four runs on nine hits over five innings.

Man, he is getting way old.

He's old for a pitcher, unless you're Satchel Paige, who pitched until he was like 90.
