Clay Buchholz went 3+ innings (facing two batters in the fourth): 5 hits, 5 runs (4 earned), 3 walks, 5 strikeouts, 70 pitches (38 strikes, 32 balls). As MLB.com notes:
Buchholz struck out four consecutive Dodgers at one point, but also allowed seven consecutive batters to reach base in the four-run third inning ...Some cool Stat of the Day links:
There have been six starts since 1956 in which the starting pitcher lasted only one pitch.
Which batter has had the most four-strikeout games in his career?
Since 1956, there have been three pitchers who have gone two consecutive starts without a retiring a batter.
Guess who had the top salary for 2007. (see lower left corner)
