200 – The number of career victories by John Smoltz (7-2) after he outpitched Tom Glavine (5-2) and the New York Mets 2-1 on Thursday. The 18-year vet became baseball’s first pitcher with 200 wins and 150 saves, racking up 154 saves as the Atlanta Braves’ closer in just 3+ seasons. He is the NL’s first 7-game winner this season and is tied for the major league lead in wins (with Josh Beckett and John Lackey). He is having another fabulous season, racking up 60 strikeouts in 73 1/3 innings pitched with a 2.58 ERA and 1.20 WHIP.
Glavine will have to wait until the next time out to go for his 296th career win.
