Kim Kwang-hyun of the St. Louis Cardinals made a strong return from injury Monday to pitch seven shutout innings against the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Cardinals went on to lose 2-1 at Miller Park in Milwaukee, but Kim struck out a career-high six batters.
In Kim's five games as a starter, he has his ERA of 0.33, which according to ESPN is the second lowest for a pitcher's first five starts of the season since Major League Baseball began collecting official records in 1913.
On Sept. 5, Kim was placed on the team's injured list after a chronic kidney ailment flared up, but he recovered quickly.
