What NBA? Memphis is a Baseball Town! 

We interrupt NBA draft day hype to bring you some baseball trivia.

It's been an eventful month, if not a very good season, for two big-league baseball players from Germantown - pitchers Matt Cain and Paul Maholm.

Both faced and lost to future Hall of Famers recently. Maholm, who is 2-10 for the Pittsburgh Pirates, started in Yankee Stadium when Roger Clemens made his 2007 debut a couple weeks ago. And on Wednesday, Cain, 2-9 for the San Francisco Giants, took the loss against Greg Maddux and the San Diego Padres. Both Clemens and Maddux have won over 300 games in their careers.

Maholm played for Germantown High School while Cain played for Houston High, and neither was born when Clemens, 44, made his major-league debut. Despite their ugly won-loss records this season, both are considered future stars.
