Mat Latos continues to dominate
A day after being scratched from a start with the flu, San Diego Padres right-hander Mat Latos fanned 10 Los Angeles Dodgers in seven innings, allowing one run. It's the third time in four starts Latos recorded double-digit strikeouts. With the Padres contending, look for Latos to keep pitching, and pitching well.
New York Mets right-hander Dillon Gee won his first major league start Tuesday, tossing seven innings of two-hit, one-run ball in Washington. Gee was a big strikeout guy at Triple-A Buffalo but gave up 174 hits in 161 1/3 innings and had a 4.96 ERA. If he makes more starts, don't expect success.
