Les Walrond Gets First Major League Win (Cue The Balloons!)

Since I've spent a lot of time making fun of ol' Les on this site, I wanted to acknowledge that, after 11 minor league seasons in which he made 221 appearances (71-63, 4.05 ERA) and 22 major league appearances with the Royals, Cubs and Phillies before today, Les Walrond got his first major league win in the Phillies' 8-3 win over the Nationals today.

Philly starter Kyle Kendrick was pulled after four innings, so he couldn't qualify for the win, and Les came in and threw two shutout innings with four strikeouts, and was awarded the victory.

Congratulations, Les. (But your career major league ERA is still 7.07, so don't get too excited.
