Baltimore Orioles pitcher Dylan Bundy pitched a complete game one-hitter in his team’s victory over the Seattle Mariners last night. It was the fourth complete game one-hitter pitched this season and the third in the last eight days.
Nolan Ryan and Bob Feller hold the MLB record for most complete game one-hitters with 12 each. Bobo Newsom and Steve Carlton follow Ryan and Feller with six each, while seven pitchers (Don Sutton, Dave Stieb, Tom Seaver, Jim Palmer, Jim Maloney, Phil Douglas and Bert Blyleven) each had five complete game one-hitters in their careers.
The Brewers have had seven complete game one-hitters in franchise history: C.C. Sabathia (in 2008), Teddy Higuera (1987), Danny Darwin (1985), Moose Haas (1985), Jim Colborn (1973) and Skip Lockwood did it twice in 1972.
(From August 1 until the first regular season game against the Seattle Seahawks on September 10, we’ll give you a daily dose of Packers stats.)
In the Mike McCarthy era (2006-16), the Packers have the best winning percentage against the AFC West (Denver, Kansas City, Oakland and San Diego), a .833 winning percentage… a 10-2 record.
Here is McCarthy’s regular season record versus the eight NFL divisions from 2006-16:
AFC West 10-2 .833
NFC North 48-17-1 .735
NFC West 16-7 .696
NFC East 14-9 .609
NFC South 10-10 .500
AFC East 6-6 .500
AFC South 6-6 .500
AFC North 4-4 .500
In addition to the six games the Pack will play against their division opponents in 2017, the Packers this season will face the four teams from the NFC South and the four teams in the AFC North.
