From Elias: Matt Moore became the third AL pitcher under the age of 24 to go 5-0 in April, joining Babe Ruth (1917) and Greg Swindell (1988).
But the 5-0 start, and the almost equally impressive 1.13 ERA, especially for a pitcher previously known as a slow starter?
"I've never done this before in the beginning of a season," Moore said. "So right now I'll just try to stay hungry and keep feeding off that last one, keep riding the snowball." Those watching him, though, were plenty impressed.
"Same thing as every night he pitches, it's special," [Kelly] Johnson said. "He gets a lot of uncomfortable swings. Guys just don't time him. His fastball looks like 110 (mph) sometimes. Just so poised and smooth."
