Bartolo Colon gave up one hit in seven innings against the Padres over the weekend. It was his first win of the season and dropped his ERA to 4.29 after a bit of a rough one the start before in Miami.
I don’t know how the guy keeps doing it. I have some ideas, but I will not share those here.
I hope the Braves aren’t so bad that we can’t back Bart anymore. Some of the veteran bats could get it going on Colon’s starts. These are the games Atlanta has to turn into wins.
Jeremy Hellickson has pretty much only ever been good for a sneaky trivia answer but he’s on fire so far in April.
Helly’s gone 17 innings in three starts and only given up three runs. What’s even more impressive are the 11 hits and three walks and that two of the three outings came against Bryce Harper and the Nationals.
So I wonder, with the starting pitching that we have set up for this one, why the total is so high. Neither offense can really hit. Ah yes, the bullpens. The scoring should come late in this one. It is not as if either starter will go more than seven; and not likely either will go more than six.
