Philadelphia Phillies pitcher has made unconventional history.
He has become the first pitcher in the modern area, dating back to 1900, to strike out 200 batters and have 6 or fewer wins on a season. Lee finished with exactly 6 wins on the season and went 6-9 overall.
He gave up three runs in six innings in a loss on Wednesday to the Washington Nationals. He also finished the season with a 3.16 ERA.
He struck out 200 batters in 205 innings while making 30 starts. Lee, who is due to make $25 million next year, hopes to rebound on his horrible 2011 season.
The 6 losses were the fewest since the 2007 season. He had a 5-8 record that season in 97 innings.
