A great night for Ultra Quality Starts

by Bill Chuck on July 11, 2013

This season I created the “Ultra Quality Start.” The UQS is awarded when a starter goes at least seven innings and surrenders no more than two runs (earned or unearned).

When pitchers weren’t walking a lot of batters, they were pitching brilliantly (although Mike Leake did both).
