Patton Pulls Double Duty in Double Header

I missed this last week but Troy Patton appeared in both halves of the Baltimore/ NY Yankees double header on 7/30.

In game 1, he pitched 2 2/3 innings (44 pitches) giving up one run on three hits. He struck out two and didn't issue a walk.

In game 2, he pitched the final inning (23 pitches) of a Yankee blow out giving up no runs on one hit while striking out two.

So combined, his days work was 3 2/3 IP, (67 pitches) one run on four hits, 0 BB and 4 K. Not a bad outing.

These outings dropped his season ERA to 4.15, after starting the month of July with a 7.71 ERA. His ERA for the month of July was 2.84 in five games (6 2/3 IP).
