Wins final start
PBaltimore Orioles
September 28, 2019
Means (12-11) earned the win Saturday against the Red Sox, allowing three runs on five hits in five innings. He struck out five batters while walking two.
ANALYSIS
Means allowed three runs on a pair of homers in the first inning but settled down for four scoreless frames after that. His 12-11 record for the 54-win Orioles can't quite compare to Steve Carlton's 27-10 record for the 59-win Phillies back in 1972, but recording a winning record on a team this poor is still no small feat. The 26-year-old's 4.42 FIP and 5.48 xFIP don't provide much support for his strong 3.60 ERA, though, so he could be in line for a fair amount of regression next season.
