Dugout Digest – good pitching Thursday was here in full force

I crack jokes every so often about “good pitching days”, when multiple starting pitchers light the world on fire. Yesterday was probably the most prime example of this – 15 of the 16 pitchers that got starts went at least six innings, and 14 of the 16 threw quality starts. We also had four complete games on the day, three of which came by pitchers that earned losses. Sometimes...
