Earlier in May, I posted about Phil Hughes and his ability/lack thereof to finish off batters once getting ahead of them 0-2 or 1-2. In that game, he threw 23 pitches to 9 batters while up 0-2/1-2. Per batter, that’s 2.5556 pitches per batter. Let’s see how he did yesterday.
|Jesus Montero/1-2||2||B; B; FOUL; K (S)|
|Michael Saunders/0-2||3||B; B; F-8|
|John Jaso/0-2||4||B; FOUL; B; B; F-8|
|Jesus Montero/0-2||4||B; B; FOUL B; FOUL; BB (questionable call)|
|Mike Carp/0-2||4||B; B; K (L)|
|Justin Smoak/0-2||5||B; B; K (S)|
|John Jaso/0-2||6||B; FOUL; 5-4-3 DP|
|Michael Saunders/1-2||8||B; B; K (S)|
|John Jason/0-2||8||B; 1B|
Yesterday, Hughes threw 34 pitches to 11 batters when up 0-2/1-2, an average of 3.09 per batter. In the last game, only 1 of 9 batters reached base after going down 0-2/1-2; yesterday, it was 3/11, though Montero’s walk was a close call that could’ve gone either way. Earlier, Hughes struck out just 2/9 when going up in the count; yesterday, he struck out 4/11, which is encouraging.
Hughes has had a successful last two starts. They haven’t been against offensive giants (KC/SEA), but it’s still a good sign. Please, Phil, keep it up.
