Lance McCullers Jr. Deflates With Six Walks In Oakland Loss
Houston Astros starting pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. has performed much better than he has tonight. After a 10-3 record and 3.41 ERA on the season, McCullers Jr. struggled in an 8-3 loss at the hands of the Oakland Athletics.
The starting pitchers inability to find the center of the diamond lead to six walks, including six earned runs through the four innings he pitched.
In 37 home games this seasons preceding Wednesday night’s loss, McCullers Jr. boated a 2.41 ERA; it ballooned to 2.59 against the Athletics, including two times that he struck a batter.
