Daily Roundup 06/25/12

The Pirates had four errors by the fifth inning.
- Joe Blanton struck out eight.
– He’s got seven wins.
— Cliff Lee still has none.
—- The Phillies beat the Pirates, which is delicious reverse YCPB.

The Mets-Cubs game involved two three base errors in the span of three batters, on a ball that hit about six inches in front of the plate and another one that was an easy pop-up.
- It wasn’t the Cubs making the errors.

DeWayne Wise had a home run
- also a triple
– but a home run!!!!

Via @drewGROF, Rajai Davis has a higher ISO than Adrian Gonzalez.

Heath Bell blew a four-run lead.
- This is like bizarro bizarro baseball, because he was so awful to start the year, but he hadn’t allowed a run since May 26th, about a month ago.

Luke Hochevar CGSHO.
- Against the Rays.
– his opponent, Alex Cobb, also threw a complete game.
— despite giving up eight runs.
—- The last CG with eight runs allowed was Randy Johnson’s fifth to last start as a Mariner back in 1998.
—– Both Hochevar and Cobb threw 113 pitches, and Cobb had more strikes.
—— This game took just two hours and seventeen minutes.

    Nothing about the Cardinals’ winning run scoring in the 10th inning on an infield single for the first career hit by a pitcher who was only in the game because of a lineup mixup?

    A bit more about that Cubs-Mets game:
    - Jon Rauch’s line: 0.1 IP, 4 R, 0 H, 1 BB
    –He’s only the second pitcher in major league history to allow four runs without allowing a hit while only walking one batter. The other was someone with the pornstar-perfect name of “Slim Love” for the 1916 Yankees.
