Last season, Tim Hudson led all Braves pitchers with 17 wins, with Derek Lowe just one win behind him at season's end.
This year, both Jair Jurrjens and Tommy Hanson have dominated opponents and reached the 10-win mark by the season's halfway point. At the rate both players are going, they should reach the 20-win mark by late-August or early-September.
Jurrjens, currently 11-3 with a 1.89 ERA, has posted 63 strikeouts in 104.2 innings pitched and become a front-runner for the NL Cy Young Award. In his last outing, a 4-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles, Jurrjens pitched a complete game one hitter, his second complete game of the season.
Hanson, currently 10-4, has a 2.52 ERA and 103 strikeouts in 96.1 innings pitched. He's won his last five outings and is currently holding opponents to a .192 batting average when he takes the mound for Atlanta.
