The 2013 Greeneville Astros got off to a 1-5 start. During that stretch, they allowed 40 runs. That is averaging giving up 6.67 runs per game. In the 27 games since then, the G-Stros are 22-5 and have only given up 67 runs. That is an average of 2.48 runs per game. That is a dramatic difference and points to the strength of this edition of the Greeneville Astros. Pitching. Let's look closer at the team pitching stats.
Leading The League As A Team
Team ERA is 2.51, which leads the league by a comfortable half a run margin.
They are tied for the most shutouts with four.
The bullpen has the most saves with 14 and the most holds with 13.
They are second in the league allowing just 233 hits and tied for the fewest walks with 89. But together, they lead the league with the lowest WHIP with 1.11.
They lead the league with 312 strikeouts.
They have allowed the second fewest HR with 9.
They have given up the second fewest runs with 107 but have given up the fewest earned runs with 81.
The only area they are not in first or second is in hit batters. They have hit 17 batters which is the fifth most.
Despite leading the league as a team in ERA by a large margin, only Frederick Tiburcio is listed in the league leaders for ERA. He is 2nd with a 1.09 ERA.
Only Chris Lee is in the top 10 for strike outs. He is tied for 5th with 32 Ks. Tiburcio is 11th with 30.
Gonzalo Sanudo and J.D. Osborne are tied for second in saves with six each. Osborne has already been promoted.
Tyler Brunnemann is in second with three holds, while Krishawn Holley and Austin Chrismon are tied for third with two each.
There is no G-Stro in the top 22 for hits allowed!
The domination of the pitching staff with the relatively light representation on the individual leader board shows that this is definitely a team effort.
Nine pitchers have more strike outs than innings pitched.
Fourteen pitchers have a WHIP under 1.20.
Ten pitchers have an ERA below 3.00.
Jordan Mills highlights this team effort. He has appeared in eight games with four of them being starts. He has a hold and a save as well. In 25 innings pitched, he has a 1.08 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP and 26 strikeouts. Whatever he has been asked to do for this team he has done it and done it well.
Definitely a fun pitching staff to watch.
