Matthew Boyd reaches 200 K!

Matthew Boyd struck out nine batters on Sunday afternoon in Tampa, becoming the 12th pitcher in Detroit Tigers history, and just the 3rd lefty, to strikeout 200+ batters in a season.

With about 6 starts left this season, Boyd has a chance to finish in the top 10 single season strikeouts in team history (Max Scherzer K'd 240 in 2013).

👉 Boyd won't come close to 2nd ("Prince Hal" Newhouser, 275 in 1946), or 1st (Mickey Lolich, 301 in 1971).

Matthew's next start should come in Minneapolis on Friday night vs the Twins, followed by a start vs the Indians the following certainly won't be an easy task, but you never know.

Have a fantastic week!
