Saturday's MLB Info

Saturday's Streaking and Slumping Starting Pitchers


Ricky Nolasco, Miami Marlins (4-0, 2.72 ERA)

Nolasco held the Padres to two runs on five hits over seven innings to tie Dontrelle Willis for the franchise lead in victories with 68. Nolasco has worked at least seven innings in each of his last three starts and walked just a single better in each.

Brandon Beachy, Atlanta Braves (3-1, 1.62 ERA)

Beachy has been nothing short of dominant this season. He was cruising along before stumbling a bit in the seventh inning in a 7-2 win over Colorado. He gave up the two runs on four hits while also walking three. Beachy’s sporting a tidy 0.95 WHIP in 39 innings so far this season heading into a tough date with the Cardinals in St. Louis.


Chris Volstad, Chicago Cubs (0-4, 6.55 ERA)

Volstad continues to get burned by one bad inning in his starts. In his last trip to the hill, he was looking good until he gave up three runs in the second inning – two of which came on a two-run double from pitcher Chris Capuano. Volstad hasn’t won since July 10 of last year and is working on a 6.88 ERA in his last three.

Luke Hochevar, Kansas City Royals (2-3, 9.00 ERA)

Hochevar couldn’t get out of the third inning against the Yankees, allowing seven hits and seven earned runs before getting the hook. He has now allowed at least seven runs in three of his first six starts and owns a fat 1.82 WHIP through 28 innings of work.
