Sean Marshall is a perfect 5-0 in the month of May. He picked up the win by pitching 1 scoreless inning in the Cubs 1-0 win over the Dodgers on Thursday afternoon at Wrigley Field. It was Marshall’s 5th win of the month – no starting pitchers can even match that feat. Marshall is the 1st reliever to win 5 games in a month since Dick Tidrow did so way back in July 1979.
Marshall had this to say about the accomplishment — “It’s very hard to do. I’ve just run into some good luck and have gotten the opportunity to pitch in tight games and keep the score close. Good things happen when you come in and keep the score zero or tied… In the first three games of the season, I was on pace to throw every game. I like the wins better.”
