Today’s Sports Stat-August 27, 2017

Is it possible that the Brewers will have their first 20-game winner in more than 30 years?

With his victory last night in the Brewers’ 3-0 win over the Dodgers, starting pitcher Zach Davies won his 15th game of the season. He is tied with Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw for most wins this season in the majors. With 32 games left on the schedule, Davies will probably get six more starts in 2017. He would need to win five of those six starts to reach the 20-win milestone.

The Brewers are one of eight MLB teams that have not had a 20-game winner this century. Colorado is the only team that has never had a 20-game winner, and the San Diego Padres have not had a 20-game winner since Gaylord Perry did it in 1978, the longest drought of the teams that have had a 20-game winner in their franchise history.

Here is a look at the last season each team had a 20-game winner.
