Who could excuse Lance Lynn if he never wants April to end?
Even before his Saturday afternoon victory over the Washington Nationals, the right-hander had the best record in the first month of the regular season of any pitcher in MLB history with at least 10 wins. His March-April career mark now stands at 12-0 with one no-decision.
Let that sink in for a moment.
In fact, Lynn is the only pitcher in MLB history to have 10 or more wins and no career losses in March-April.
