In the big series opener at Pittsburgh, he picked up his 14th win of the season. Lohse was artificially limited to five innings by a 34-minute rain delay followed by manager Mike Matheny‘s decision not to bring him back out. Lohse was scored upon only in the fourth inning, when the Pirates plated two runs on four singles and a sacrifice fly.

Three pitchers have 16. His .875 winning percentage, based on his 14-2 record, is far better than the next-best NL hurler. (The Mets’ R.A. Dickey is second...

Harrison v. Molina: Not Exactly What You Think
