Pirates Stat of the Day 8/11/15

The Pirates swept the Los Angeles Dodgers at PNC Park over the weekend by scores of 5-4 (10), 6-5 and 13-6. The starting pitching, which has been the lynchpin of the Bucs success this season, was awful. With the 10-inning game on Friday night the Pirates played 28 innings against the Dodgers on the weekend. Both their starters and reliever logged 14 innings. Here's how they compared:

Starters (Cole-6, Liriano-3, Morton-5)

14 IP, 21 H, 12 R, 12 ER, 8 BB 15 K, 7.71 ERA, 2.071 WHIP

Relievers (Soria-2, Watson-2, Melancon-2, Bastardo-2, Blanton-3, Caminero-2, Hughes-1)

14 IP, 12 H, 3 R, 2 ER 5 BB, 12 K, 1.29 ERA, 1.214 WHIP

Throw in the last outings of Jeff Locke and J.A. Happ and these are the numbers of the Pirates starters the last time through the rotation:

24 IP, 33 H, 20 R, 20 ER, 11 BB, 25 K, 7.50 ERA, 1.8333 WHIP

The need their bullpen to continue to be lights-out and their starters to be much better as they open a six-game road trip to St. Louis and New York beginning tonight.
