Eye popping numbers
Tuesday, September 10, 2019
Yesterday, the Oakland Athletics started a guy named Mike Fiers against Houston, and he gave up 9 runs in the first inning and the bit of the second he pitched before mercifully getting the hook. His ERA was 81.00.
Crazy numbers, right? Well, he had nothing on Wade Miley, who pitched tonight for Houston against those same Oakland Athletics. Poor Wade only managed to get one out, while giving up 7 runs, for a spectacular 189.00 ERA, en route to a 21-7 Oakland win. No, it wasn't the Raiders vs Texans, this was a baseball game.
A common thread between the two starters? I've got them both on my fantasy baseball team. I suspect I'm not winning the ERA category this week. :)
