The First Pitch Report

by Bill Chuck on October 10, 2013

Of the 33 Pirates batters Adam Wainwright faced last night, he threw 24 first-pitch strikes, 22 were in the strike zone, 15 were swung at, four were missed, five were fouled off, nine were called strikes, four were chased, and one went for a hit.

2013 Starters (min: 20) who allowed the fewest first pitch hits

I find this an odd list

Matt Moore 23 12 44
Chris Archer 21 15 47
Jake Peavy 23 16 73
Phil Hughes 24 16 58
Jered Weaver 24 18 73
