Tom Glavine finally nailed his 300th career win Sunday night, capping off a milestone-laden baseball weekend with a victory over the Cubs. Glavine allowed two runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings, and the Mets bullpen was able to hang on to the lead to hand their 41-year-old ace an 8-3 victory. "I think the feeling now is one of relief," he told reporters.
Glavine is only the 23rd pitcher in major league history to reach 300 wins and the first to accomplish the feat since ex-teammate Greg Maddux did it with the Cubs in 2004. The lefty adds his membership in the exclusive 300 club to a laundry list of Hall of Fame prerequisites: He's a five-time 20 game winner, a World Series MVP, has 2 Cy Youngs and 10 All-Star spots.
