Comments on: Jeremy Hellickson’s strong debut http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/7691 This and that about baseball stats.

It seems Hellickson is more likely to follow that sort of career path than some of the others on the list.

But it revealed something more strange: Jimmy Jones in his debut 1986 came close to a perfect game throwing a 1-hitter with only being stung by a triple!!!

And couriously this triple came from the opponents starting pitcher Bob Knepper!!!

The summary gives you a PERFECT game in a DEBUT broken up only by a PITCHER´S TRIPLE.

amazing

Another bit of props for Travis Wood: he's pulled this same feat off three times in his first seven starts including last night's game, and a fourth game where he went six innings and gave up three hits. His stuff doesn't have the same flare that some of the other rookie pitchers does, but outside of a guy like Strasburg, it's tough to find anyone else who has gotten off to a better start.
