Fun With Game Logs

While looking at some Indians stats earlier today, I came across a few tidbits of information.  So I thought I would share.

  • With Shin-Soo Choo's 7 RBI outburst on July 3rd, Tribe hitters have posted 6 RBI or more in a game six times over the past season and a half.  That is the most such games in a two-season span since at least 1954. In 2008, Grady Sizemore had 7 on August 21st, Ryan Garko had 6 on June 4 and Casey Blake did it twice (7 on June 2 and 6 on April 22).  2008 marked the first year Tribe hitters had 6 or more RBI in a game 4 times.  All proving how stupid RBI is as a stat.
  • Fausto Carmona and Anthony Reyes have each pitched a game this year with 6 or more walks.  That's a lot of walks, but not historically bad.  In 1970, Tribe pitchers walked 6 or more batters 19 times.  The next year, they did it 18 times.  In 1971, Tribe pitchers walked nine or more batters 6 times.  
  • This marks the third year in a row Fausto has walked 6 or more in a game.
  • On May 7, Masa Kobayashi allowed 5 runs while not recording an out.  That hadn't been done since Danys Baez equalled the feat in the 9th inning of an 8-5 loss on April 22, 2003.  But Masa was historically efficient, giving up his 5 runs on only 12 pitches.  At 2.4 pitches per run, he was the most efficient bad pitcher.  However, Tribe pitchers have allowed 6 runs without recording an out four times (Steve Olin, Vern Ruhle, Dave Freisleben and Mudcat Grant).  If Masa makes a repeat appearance, he needs to work on quantity of badness, not just efficiency.
  • On June 29, Chris Perez gave up 4 ER in two-thirdds of an inning in his Tribe debut.  On July 7, Winston Abreu bettered the feat by giving up his 4 ER in one-third of an inning. Since 1954, Tribe relievers have given up 4 or more ER in a game 191 times.  But never before have two relievers managed to do it in their first appearance for the team.
