Trevor Bauer’s performance last night was just the 98th time in MLB history that a starting pitcher had the following stats: – At least 5.0 IP – No runs allowed – At least 6 walks – Max of 1 hit Tampa Bay’s Matt Moore had a similar such performance on April 10 this season. No pitchers accomplished this feat in 2012. Specific to the Indians, when with the Colorado Rockies, Ubaldo Jimenez’s no-hitter on April 17, 2010 qualifies as he managed to walk six Braves despite allowing zero hits. Justin Masterson was the last Indian to do so, on August 15, 2010 where he walked six Seattle Mariner batters in six innings of work. Of all MLB pitchers with at least 10 innings under their belt in 2013, Bauer leads the pack with 11.7 walks per nine innings pitched. St. Louis’ Mitchell Boggs is second, a full three walks-per-nine-innings fewer than Bauer. In MLB history, only 51 pitchers have ever started a season with at least six walks in each of their first two outings. Besides Bauer in 2013, Cincinnati’s Homer Bailey was the most recent to do so in 2009. Only five pitchers then advanced their streak to three games—Hall of Famers Nolan Ryan (1977) and Bob Feller (1941) are among this group.
