You can say that Detroit Tigers pitcher Matt Manning has had a good start to his professional career.

This afternoon against the St. Louis Cardinals at Comerica Park, he recorded a stat line of 52 strikes on 80 pitches while walking two and surrendering five hits (two runs). Thanks to his efforts he earned his 1st career win.
