Hisashi Iwakuma and Yu Darvish – Runs per Game Started

by on Jun.19, 2010 @ 5:00 am, under NPB

Hisashi Iwakuma and Yu Darvish have both pitched well this year.  Unfortunately, neither pitcher really has the record to show for their relative success.

ERA GS W L RpGS RpGS (W) RpGS (L) RpGS (ND) ND W/L
Darvish 1.55 12 5 4 3.8 7.2 1.5 1.3 1-1-1
Iwakuma 2.72 13 4 4 3.3 4.8 2.3 3.0 2-3-0

It may seem like the Fighters consistently score a lot of runs for Darvish, but then he did also win three games by the score of 12-1, 8-5, and 9-0.

Here's a slightly different, but equally interesting chart:

0-2 R 0-2 R (W/L) 3-4 R 3-4 R (W/L) 5-6 R 5-6 R (W/L) 7+ R 7+ R (W/L)
Darvish 6 1-3 2 0-1 1 1-0 3 3-0
Iwakuma 5 1-3 4 1-0 3 1-1 1 1-0

Th chart below displays runs per game data for all other starters on each respective team.

GS W L RpGS RpGS (W) RpGS (L) RpGS (ND) ND W/L

Eagles SP 50 16 20 4.0 6.3 2.0 4.4 7-6-1

And here's the W/L records:

0-2 R 0-2 R (W/L) 3-4 R 3-4 R (W/L) 5-6 R 5-6 R (W/L) 7+ R 7+ R (W/L)
Fighters SP 16 2-10 17 4-7 8 3-2 11 6-0
