The Nine Earned Runs Allowed Report

by Bill Chuck on August 15, 2013

In the Yankees 11-3 domination of the Angels last night, Jered Weaver, tied a career high by allowing nine runs, all earned, in just five innings. But for the pitchers who have allowed at least nine runs in a game this season, five innings isn’t that bad.

20 pitchers have allowed at least nine runs in a game this season

The Cubs Jeff Samardzija is this season’s Claude Willoughby being the only pitcher with two nine earned run games this season
