SONNY

October 6th, 2013

He wasn’t in the rotation until August, and he was making his 11th big league start in the ALDS. And he was going up against A’s killer and 2011 Cy Young and AL MVP Justin Verlander. It was very much the David vs. Goliath matchup as far as name recognition goes, but man, did Sonny […]
