The Pitcher RBI Report

by Bill Chuck on August 28, 2013

Jonathon Niese threw a three-hit shutout as the Mets defeated the Phillies, 5-0 to end a five-game losing streak.

The fun stat here was not Niese’s second career shutout in 112 major league starts, but his three RBI. That gives him the most RBI for a pitcher this season in a shutout.
