Bill Simmons had a twitter post asking about a stats breakdown of starting pitchers who make relief appearances on one day’s rest, after Tim Lincecum had a slightly frightening third of an inning in NLCS game 6 last Saturday. So, I figured I’d see what pitchers have hit a batter in similar situations – where they had started a game 2 days before, and then were called on for a relief appearance in the playoffs. And while I’m at it, I guess I can look at the ones who didn’t hit anyone.
There have only been 3 HBPs in that situation. Cardinals pitcher Todd Stottlemyre started game 5 of the 1996 NLCS, against the Braves on October 14, 1996, and then came in to pitch the bottom of the 8th with the Cards trailing 2-1. He then hit Javy Lopez, and gave up singles to Jermaine Dye and Rafael Belliard to drive in Lopez, making the score 3-1 Braves. Stottlemyre finished the inning without further damage but lost the game.
Prior to that, the last time someone hit a batter in a relief appearance 2 days after a postseason start was the 1906 World Series. Jack Pfiester started Game 3 for the Cubs against the White Sox (Oct 11, 1906), and came in to pitch in the 3rd inning of game 5 to relieve Ed Reulbach with a runner on 2nd, no outs and a 1 run lead. He then hit Jiggs Donahue, and eventually let his inherited runner score in that inning, and gave up 2 more runs in the 4th to take the loss. (Donahue is still the only Jiggs to get hit by a pitch in the postseason, and is also the regular season HBP leader among players named Jiggs with 17. Jiggs Parrott had 5.)
Finally, Cy Young gets into the act. He started game 1 of the 1903 World Series on October 1, and came in to relieve Tom Hughes with no outs in the 3rd inning, runners on 1st and 3rd, and Honus Wagner at the plate. So he plunked Honus, but got out of the inning only allowing one run. He pitched 7 full innings, allowed 1 of his own runs, and only 3 hits.
Overall, there have been 86 relief pitching appearances in which the pitcher had started either 1 or 2 days prior. That includes Greg Booker’s appearance in game 1 of the 1984 NLCS on October 2nd, after starting the final regular season game for the Padres on September 30th, and also Lincecum’s appearance this year. Pitchers in those appearances total combined ERA is exactly 3.00 – 51 Earned Runs in 153 innings. They’ve give up 62 total runs, 7 homers, and 3 HBPs. Their combined WHIP is 1.33. They’ve struck out 105 and walked 66. They’ve gotten 13 wins, 5 losses, 16 saves, 4 holds, and 5 blown saves. And two of those wins/blown saves were the vulture wins where the pitcher first blows the save and then gets the win. Since 1980 though, there have only been 19 such appearances. ERA in that span is a less nice looking 5.64. Pitchers in that kind of relief appearance have given up 14 runs in 22 1/3 innings, and had a 1.52 WHIP. They’ve struck out 24, walked 7, hit 1 batter, allowed 1 homer, and 21 total hits. In general, there have been some nail biters, but not a lot of real disasters.
Here’s the run down of the most recent ones, prior to this season:
October 25, 2005 – WS Game 3, Mark Buehrle vs the Astros
This barely counts. Buehrle pitched 7 innings in his start in Game 2 on the 23rd, and came into game 3 in the bottom of the 14th inning, with 2 outs. He got Adam Everett to pop-up on the third pitch. Which doesn’t sound that hard. At least there were runners on 1st and 3rd, but the White Sox had a 2 run cushion. He got a save for that third of an inning of work.
Pedro came in to this game to start the 7th inning, with the Red Sox up 8 to 1. No one is quite sure why. He gave up 3 hits, allowed 2 runs, and resisted the temptation to hit anyone. But, he finished the inning with the Red Sox still ahead 8-3. Pedro had thrown 111 pitches in 6 innings of work in game 5 on the 18th. Speaking of that game…
Arroyo got shelled in his start in game 3 on the 16th, giving up 6 runs in 2+ innings of work, on only 60 pitches. So, it seems like he was a logical choice to throw some relief in game 5 once they’d already played to a draw in the first 9 innings. Arroyo pitched a perfect 1-2-3 10th inning, with 2 strikouts, preserving the tie. You’d think they’d have let him pitch some more that night, but Terry Francona must have known they’d need him again the following night. He pitched again on the 19th in relief of Curt Schilling, giving up 1 run in what could have been a much worse outing if the umpires hadn’t properly called Alex Rodriguez out on the Glove Slap.
David Wells won game 5 for the Yankees, pitching 7 innings and allowing 1 run on the 14th, but in game 7, the Yankees were trailing 3-1 with one out in the top of the 8th when they brought the big lefty in to face another big lefty in David Ortiz. Ortiz hit a solo homer. Wells got the next two batters out, but the Red Sox had a comfortable 3 run lead going to the bottom of the 8th, giving them the perfect opportunity to go to the bullpen to relieve the tiring Pedro Martinez. Except then they didn’t do that. But Wells gave up 1 earned run in 2/3rds of an inning of work.
October 6, 2003 – ALDS game 5, Ted Lilly vs the Red Sox and Derek Lowe vs the A’s
Lilly and Lowe had both started Game 3, on the 4th. Both pitched 7 innings, and both only allowed 1 unearned run. Lilly threw 107 pitches, Lowe 100. In Game 5, Lilly came in out to start the 7th inning, with the A’s behind by a 4-2 score. He pitched 2 perfect innings, with 2 strikeouts. Lowe came in for the bottom of the 9th, with the score still 4-3 Red Sox, but with runners on 1st and 2nd with no out, after Scott Williamson had walked 2. Lowe got the next two batters out, then walked a man just to make it interesting, before getting the strikeout for out number 3 and the save. 1 inning pitched for Lowe, no runs, no hits, 1 walk.
November 4, 2001 – World Series Game 7, Randy Johnson vs the Yankees on No Rest
Randy Johnson pitched 7 innings in his start in game 6, but came back the very next day with two outs in the 8th inning of game 7, with his team down 2 to 1. He closed out the inning, and pitched a 1-2-3 9th, keeping the Diamondbacks close enough to come back in the bottom of the 9th. Johnson got the win, with 1 strikeout, no hits allowed, and no walks, in 1 1/3 innings. He’s the only pitcher ever to get a win in a postseason start, and then get the win in a game the following day.
October 8, 2000 – ALDS Game 5, Orlando Hernandez vs the A’s
Orlando Hernandez had a great game 3 in the 2000 ALDS between the Yankees and A’s, pitching 7 innings and giving up just 2 earned runs on October 6th. In game 5, he came out to start the 8th, and struck out Ben Grieve. But then he gave up a double to Matt Stairs, causing the Yankees to go to Mariano Rivera. Hernandez is given a Hold for his third of an inning, with 1 hit, and 1 strikeout, but this outing probably goes in the “shaky” category. The Yankees were probably looking for him to get more than just 1 out, and probably weren’t excited to see him put a runner into scoring position.
October 8, 1999 – NLDS game 3, Kevin Millwood vs the Astros
Millwood pitched a complete game win in Game 2 on October 6th, giving up only 1 hit – a Ken Caminiti homer. In game 3, the game went to the 12th inning before Atlanta took the lead. The Braves had already used up closer John Rocker, so Millwood came on to close out the bottom of the 12th, with a 2 run lead. He pitched a perfect 1-2-3 inning (with Caminiti leading off) earning a save.
October 12, 1998 – NLCS game 5, Greg Maddux vs the Padres
Maddux only pitched 5 innings, throwing 81 pitches in his start for NLCS game 3, on the 10th. In game 5, Kerry Lightenberg started the 9th inning with a 3 run lead for the Braves, but managed to give up a two run homer and get no one out. The Braves turned to Maddux, with none on, no outs, and a 1 run lead. Maddux struck out one and allowed one walk, but preserved the lead and got the save. No hits, no runs, 1 inning pitched.
October 16, 1996 – NLCS game 6, Todd Stottlemyre vs the Braves
Stottlemyre had a rough outting on the 14th, in his start of game 5 of the series. He lasted only 38 pitches, and managed on 3 outs against 7 earned runs. In game 6, the Cardinals went to Stottlemyre in the bottom of the 8th, trailing 2-1. As mentioned above, he hit Javy Lopez and gave up a run, but he did get three outs, so that’s as many as he got in his prior start, with 6 fewer runs allowed. 1 inning pitched, 1 hit batter, 2 hits, 1 run (earned). This one probably goes in the “shaky” category.
October 8, 2010 – ALDS game 5 – Randy Johnson vs the Yankees and Jack McDowell vs the Mariners.
In game 3 on the 6th, Johnson got the win and McDowell took the loss, as Johnson pitcher 7 full innings and gave up just 2 runs, while McDowell gave up 5 runs in 5 1/3 innings. In game 5, Johnson game in with no outs in the top of the 9th, with runners on 1st and 2nd, and retired the next three batters. McDowell entered the game in the bottom of the ninth with 1 out and runners on 1st and 2nd. He retired the next 2. Both got through the 10th inning allowing no runs, but McDowell gave up 2 singles. In the 11th, Johnson gave up a run on 1 hit, 2 walks (1 was intentional) and a sacrifice bunt, but finished the inning. But, McDowell blew the lead, getting no outs in the bottom of the 11th, and allowing 2 runs on three hits. Final line for Johnson is 3 innings, 6 strikeouts, 1 hit, 1 earned run, 2 walks, and a win. For McDowell, it’s 1 2/3 innings, 2 strikeouts, no walks, 5 hits, two earned runs, and the walk-off loss. But, it’s hard to put this in the category of the shaky outings, since he did prevent any runs in the 9th and 10th innings. They just expected a little too much of him to finish the 11th.
October 9, 1988 – NLCS game 4 – Orel Hershiser vs the Mets
Hershiser pitched 7 innings in his game 3 start the day before, but came back on no rest to face Kevin McReynolds in the bottom of the 12th inning, with the bases loaded, 2 outs, and a 1 run lead. Hershiser got him to fly out on 3 pitches, earning a save. 1/3 innings, save, no hits, no runs, no strikeouts, no walks.
October 11, 1985, ALCS Game 3, Bud Black vs the Blue Jays
Bud Black pitched a 7 innings start in game 2 on the 9th, allowing 3 runs (1 unearned). In game 3, he entered the game after Brett Saberhagen gave up 5 runs in the fifth inning, with only 1 out. Black got the first batter he faced out, but then proceed to load the bases on two singles and a walk. Steve Farr relieved him and got the final out. So there was no damage, but it wasn’t pretty. 1/3 innings pitched, 2 hits, 1 walk, no runs, no strikeouts.
October 2, 1984 – NLCS Game 1, Greg Booker vs the Cubs
This one might not quite fit in with this project, because Booker’s prior start was a regular season game on September 30th. He pitched 5 innings in that game, with probably not a lot of effort since they Padres had clinched their division title 10 days before that. In game 1, Booker pitched the 8th and 9th inning, giving up 2 hits, and allowing no runs – but the Cubs were probably tired at that point, having already scored 13 runs in the game. Booker struck out 2 and walked 1, but who really cared, because they were down by 13 runs. Still, a decent mop-up performance
October 11, 1981 – ALDS game 5, Pete Vukovich vs the Yankees
Peter Vukovich got the win in game 4, on October 10th, but he only pitched 5 innings, allowing just 2 hits and 1 run (unearned). In the 5th and deciding game of the series, the Yankees had just scored 2 insurance runs in the the bottom of the 8th, with two outs, and the Brewers went to Vukovich to stop the rally. He faced one batter, and got him out to end the inning. 1/3 innings pitched, no strikeouts, no hits, no runs, no walks.
October 12, 1980 – NLCS game 5, Larry Christenson vs the Astros
Christenson pitched 6 shutout innings in his game 3 start on the 10th, but did not keep up that success when called on for a relief appearance in game 5. Entering to start the 7th inning, with the score tied, he gave up 2 runs and only got 2 out, with 2 hits, a walk and a wild pitch that let in a run. Ron Reed replaced him, but let in another of Christenson’s runs before ending the inning. So his final line was 3 earned runs 2/3 innings pitched, 2 hits, 1 walk. He did not get the loss though, since the Phillies came back in the top of the 8th.
At this point we get back into an era when pitcher’s were used differently – there are another 14 instances of this kind of relief appearance in the 70s, while there have only been 19 since 1980. Going back through the list there are two games in which three different pitchers has started in the prior two days. There are 20 games where a pitcher started a World Series game on 1 day rest, but that hasn’t been done since Whitey Ford in 1953 game 6.
But, from 1980 to today, there was only 1 really bad outing among these (Christenson). 6 more I’d classify as “shaky” – Lincecum, Pedro, Wells, Hernandez, Stottlemyre, and Black. 7 were perfect, although three of those were only 1 batter faced. Ted Lilly’s 2 perfect innings is a standout though. And 5 more were solid, and I’m counting both pitchers from 1995’s ALDS game 5 in that group, even though Johnson gave up a run, and McDowell gave up 2 and took the loss.
