It was also the most earned runs allowed by a Major League pitcher in a win since Andy Pettitte of the Yankees surrendered eight in an 11-10 win at Baltimore on Sept. 29, 2007.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last time a Major League starting pitcher went seven or more innings, allowed eight earned runs or more and still picked up a win was Britt Burns of the Chicago White Sox on July 13, 1985. Burns went all the way in a 10-8 win at Baltimore.

"It's probably my ugliest win," Hellickson said.
