Great? No. He is very lucky through 6. When many balls put in play and not a hit, that's very low BABIP. Don't tell anyone under .200 BABIP is pitching great.

 

He pitched great. 3 Hits and 0 runs through 6. He's not going to strike everybody out.

Perez was great through 6, but the way he pitched in the 7th I think he deserved the 4 runs he's charged with.


I can absolutely understand and accept a RP allowing an inherited run or two to score. It happens. But Harperm unfortunately, didn't have it tonight. Again, it happens. But Perez still didn't deserve all of those runs with how well he pitched.

It was a 7.1, but far east of L.A.

About 60 miles NE of where we are.

Thankfully, the kidnappers got their ransom and released Jonathan Schoop in time for his return for tonite's game.

Perez had 13 swinging strikes in 78 pitches through 6 innings. I’m not a math expert, but that’s a pretty good ratio. What he lacked tonight was a put away pitch at times. That said, his season K rate is over 8 per 9.

I'm really hoping Rocco doesn't put Stewart out there

Come on people, Perez was awesome through 6! He ran out of gas and maybe should have been pulled earlier. And maybe Harper didn't have it tonight. But let's not pretend that wasn't a quality start!

A much needed thrashing by our offense. Let’s hope pitching is coming soon

I'm not sure I remember hearing Launder in the booth before. I really like him there. And not just his stories. I like his perspective.

IMO it depends on the type of contact a pitcher allows if they aren't striking out a bunch of guys. If Perez was getting a bunch of soft groundballs and pop-ups, that's good; but if there was lots of hard contact, then that wasn't quite as good. Strikeouts are great but they aren't the be all and end all.
