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)

by on Jun.15, 2012 @ 2:39 pm, under NPB
Tags: ,

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.
