100 Words on: Dontrelle Willis
W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP 2008 - Dontrelle Willis 0-0 1 1 0 0 0 0 5.0 1 3 3 0 7 0 5.40 1.60
That's Willis' line from yesterday, five innings, a hit, and seven walks. Before he was pulled Willis had a no-hitter going for five full innings, however he was responsible for runners on after a rough start to the sixth. Remember my theory about wild pitchers being more likely to throw no-hitters? This is exactly the situation I was talking about, unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, Dontrelle couldn't last.
