BTW, is a player on 1st base classed as RISP?

No he has to be at least on 2nd.

Hill needs to get them here, and send it to the pen.

Hill doesn't have his best stuff today.  The ball is not moving much.  No strikeouts.  We are fortunate to be in this game.

It tells you how many baserunners allowed a pitcher averages per inning.

Thanks. As I post, Hill seems to be rattling though 'em!

He must be around 80 pitches through 7. I think he deserves a shot at the 9th with the bottom of the lineup coming up.

Does Shawn Hill have the lowest pitch count all year for a Nats starter after 7 innings? 76 at this point would be complete-game material for a healthy starter.

Hill has been great.  Just he doesn't have his usual stuff, and they are hitting balls hard at people.

wow, great inning by Hill. His fastball is still up in the 90's, don't take him out yet.

Mine, (Walks + Hits)/Innings Pitched = WHIP, is more accurate because division takes precedence over addition so your formula would give the wrong answer.  :P

I actually sort of agree.  Even though his line is good, Hill's given up a lot of fly balls.  He's slightly lucky, although he's still done really well at attacking the zone and keeping his sinker just low enough, so you can't say he hasn't be at least totally solid.

Although I agree that he doesn't have his best/dominant stuff he has pitched brilliantly. He has shown the ability to pitch when he doesn't have his best stuff. Also, the fact that he doesn't have strikeout stuff is what has his pitch count so low and allowing him to go deep into the game. I'm definitely impressed :thumbs:

I would say, for an injured starter who's still sore and who shouldn't really be playing, 7 innings of one-run ball on just 76 pitches is phenomenal.
