Do The Berney 46 times

With seven solid innings in Sunday’s 9-2 win over Somerset, Corey Thurman notched his 46th career win in a Revolution uniform since joining the club prior to the 2008 season.  Far and away the franchise’s all-time leader in that category, the closest to Thurman is Wayne Franklin – with 20. 

Thurm’s 46th career win also placed him third in Atlantic League history.  He is now 16 wins behind second place man Lincoln Mikkelsen who has 62 ALPB winning decisions.  Tim Cain is the league’s all-time leader, with 74.  Thurman would be even closer had he not missed the second half of the 2009 season with hand injury, after starting the All-Star Game for the Freedom Division. 

Thurman’s 8-1 record this season makes him 46-24 for his Revolution career, and eight consecutive winning decisions is also a club record.  York is 12-2 when he pitches this season. 

With no apparent plans to retire anytime soon, who knows how far he’ll climb.  Could Mikkelsen and Cain actually be within reach?  Time will tell, but based on performances such as Sunday’s, and most of his starts this season, Corey Thurman keeps getting better with age.
