We looked at the batters earlier today, now lets look at the pitchers, over the past two weeks. The pitchers had a 4.98 ERA over the last two weeks and still we still went 7-5. I'm glad the offense has hit it's stride.
|Two starts for Mark, one was terrible, 6 innings, 9 hits, 7 earned (all in the one inning), 2 walks, 5 k. The other was his best start of the season, 7 innings, 5 hits, 1 earned, 2 walks, 5 k. So in all, he went 13 innings, and 12 of them were shut out innings, it was just the 7 runs that scored in that one inning that wrecked things. Batters hit .275/.327/.431 against him.|
He only made the one start over the two weeks, but it was his best start of the season. 8 innings, 3 hits, 2 earned, 5 walks (4 of the walks came in the same inning), 8 k.
|He had the one start and was hit my the line drive in the 2nd inning. The good news is that he wasn't hurt badly by the ball hitting his head, but he sprained his knee falling. No surgery needed, back in June.|
|Triceps sorness will keep him out until June.|
|Casey only pitched four times in the last two weeks. 3 saves, 4 innings, 1 hit, 0 walks, 2 k. I wish Gibbons would use him in a tie,.|
|Pitched in 4 games, 5 innings, 4 hits, 1 earned, 1 home run, 1 walk, 4 k. Batters hit .222/.263/.444 against him.|
|Aaron got in 4 games too (you think maybe we don't need an 8 man bullpen?). 4 games, 7 innings, 6 hits, 2 earned, 1 homer, 1 intentional walk, 6 k. Batters hit .240/.259/.400 off him.|
Brett pitched in 5 games, 5.1 innings, 7 hits, 4 earned, 0 walks, 4 k. 6.75 ERA. Batters hit .394/.304/.435 against him. He's been so good, he is allowed a down.
|Esmil pitched in 5 games, 4.1 innings, 5 hits, 4 earned, 1 home run, 2 walks, 3 k. Batters hit .294/.409/.539 against him in those 4.1 innings.|
|4 games, 5 innings, 5 hits, 1 earned, 2 walks, 5 k. Batters hit .294/.368/.412 off him.|
|A pretty good two weeks for Ortiz. He gets called up, makes 2 good starts. The first one he went 5 innings, allowed 4 hits, 1 earned, 5 walks, 1 k. The second one he goes 7 innings, allowing 6 hits, 1 earned, 1 walk, 1 k. 12 innings and a 1.50 ERA. I'm not sure he can sustain success averaging only 1 k per 6 innings, but it worked for those two starts. With Johnson, Happ and Morrow missing starts, someone had to step up and Ortiz did.|
|Lincoln pitched in 4 games, 6 innings, 7 his, 4 earned, 1 home run, 5 walks, 6 strikeouts. Batters hit .292/.414/.458 off him and this is the guy Gibbons chooses to go with in the bottom of the 10th with the winning run on second?|
||After just 1 start in the minors, after missing most the first month with a sore shoulder, Jenkins gets the call up and goes 5 pretty strong innings against the Red Sox. He did allow 7 hits, but only 1 walk and just 2 earned. Chad earned himself another start.|
