As if the Dodgers needed any more Statis-Pro starting pitching, we debut the new card for the new sensation Bobby Miller, who now gives them a complete rotation of PB 2-8 pitchers. What's more, Dodger Stadium is no longer a pitcher's paradise, meaning these pitchers are accomplishing their PB 2-8s without the line at the bottom that on the opponent's batting card's lowest OUT number is a home run.
Because we throw the No. 1 and No. 4 pitchers in one double header and the No. 2 and 3 in the next double header, Clayton Kershaw and Bobby Miller will pitch the Dodgers 7th Series of the season - this one against the Cubs. That is a neat match-up because that features the Statis-Pro surprise starter of the year - Mark Leiter Jr. - the nephew of Al Leiter. Mark is actually leading our Statis-Pro league in ERA through three stars for each pitcher. We will add results of the two games below the picture of the Dodgers killer rotation in our game.
The Dodgers won the most lopsided series of our season. Bobby Miller threw 7 shutout innings in his debut 5-0 win. Clayton Kershaw through 7 innings allowing 1 run in a 14-1 blowout.
Things tend to even out in Statis-Pro. Mark Leiter Jr. entered the game leading our league with a 0.48 ERA in three starts (1 earned run allowed in 18 2/3 inning). The Dodgers tagged him for five runs in 1 2/3 innings to raise it to a much more reasonable but still strong 2.66 ERA. So far this actual MLB season teams are scoring an average 4.64 runs per game, starting pitchers are averaging 5 2/3rd innings and have a 3.68 ERA. In Statis-Pro so far the averages are almost exactly the same - 4.60, 5 1/3, 3.93.
The Dodgers move solidly into first place with the lopsided sweep.
