Tough Losses

In 35.1% of his losses, Robin Roberts allowed three earned runs or less in seven or more innings (a slightly stricter version of the quality start). Gaylord Perry was victimized more (in terms of raw total, not percentage) than anyone else. It's amazing that he still managed to win 314 games.

The pitchers with the most 7 IP/3 ER or less losses who do not appear on this list are Claude Osteen (71 of 195 losses, for 36.4%), Fergie Jenkins (69 of 226, 30.5%), Bob Gibson (68 of 174, 39.1%), and Dolph Luque (67 of 179, 37.4%).
