Former Mississippi State great is quickly becoming a stud for the Oakland Athletics. Last night, Graveman threw a 2 hit complete game shutout to help carry the Athletics to a 9-0 win over the Chicago White Sox. The outing was the first complete game shutout that Graveman has thrown in his career.

One of the most impressive aspects of it all? He did it with fewer than 100 pitches. That’s not something you see everyday. In fact, he’s only the second pitcher this year to accomplish this feat.

Graveman was the first to do this for the Oakland Athletics in over a decade. That’s a pretty long time.

Needless to say, Athletics fans have to be excited about the potential that Graveman is showing. Despite having a rough start to the season and stumbling to a 2-6 record through May, Graveman has bounced back and posted a 7-2 record in June, July and August.
