Greg Maddux Newsbeat

Saturday, July 22, 2017

20 years ago today: Greg Maddux threw a 76-pitch complete game

He had a cursory reputation.

Only 13 [pitches] were balls. He had six strikeouts. Not only did Maddux not walk anyone, he didn’t get into a single three-ball count all day. He only got two balls against a hitter twice — once in the second inning against Sammy Sosa and in the seventh against Mark Grace.

...Maddux threw seven pitches in the first inning and then seven in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings. He really labored in the fourth inning — that was when he surrendered the one run — and threw 12 pitches. 

...There’s even a stat named after him — The Maddux — for when a pitcher throws a shutout with fewer than 100 pitches. Maddux did that 13 times during his career.

Greg Maddux was master of control, efficiency | MLB.com

“I never worried about pitch count,” Maddux said. “The only thing that mattered to me was getting the ‘W.’ That’s what I was out there trying to do. I didn’t think about how many pitches—I threw however many it took.”
