Matt Murton, Hit Progression by Month Matt Murton, Hit Progression by Season

According to the charts, it would seem Matt Murton is hitting baseballs this season at about the same pace as his first year.

One other chart that might be of interest:

Year BABIP lgBABIP OPS SB Multi-hit
2010 .371 .296 .894 11 67
2011 .339 .276 .762 6 53
2012 .288 .276 .632 2 31
2013 .388 .282 .918 3 17

It should probably be noted that Murton started tinkering with his swing after the 2010 season in an attempt to increase his power output. He reportedly reverted to something closer to his year one swing this year.  It should also be noted that the standard NPB baseball was introduced in 2011.

Below is video of four swings, one from each of his four seasons. All four swings resulted in home runs, but the pitches and locations are different, so it may not be the best footage to compare.

Hanshin Tigers: Stats over their last eleven games

The Hanshin Tigers went 1-10 over their last eleven games.  I mentioned elsewhere that it was an eleven-game road trip, but in actuality, it was a nine-game road trip with two home games at Matsuyama.  Either way, it was an awful eleven games.

And for those interested, here are some stats from those eleven games.

The Tigers also committed six errors and allowed ten unearned runs.  They lost three games by one run and three games by two runs.  The two quality starts did not include the game they actually won.  The offense also banged out double-digit hits in six of the eleven games.

2012 Inter-league ERAs under 2.00 (Starting Pitchers)

An article about Kenta Maeda's 0.92 Inter-league ERA made me ask, "What about the other starters?"

Here they are, all qualified starters with ERAs under 2.00 (through to June 15, 2012).

Gotta feel for Kenichi Nakata -- he's 0-4 with a 1.83 ERA and a 0.81 WHIP.  Talk about bad luck.
