On The Board
Kenta Maeda (LAD)
He has allowed just one run in a total of 25 1/3 innings in his four starts since his debut in the Major Leagues. He became the third pitcher since 1900 to give up just one run in at least 25 frames in his first 4 games to open up his career in MLB. He is also the second in throwing six scoreless innings in 3 of his first 4 career starts.
The Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher registers a 3-0 record, a 0.36 ERA, and 23 strikeouts and the only game in which he got a no-decision, he departed after 6 innings, and left the Dodgers with a 1-0 lead. He has given up no more than 5 hits per game, and is the thirteenth pitcher to keep his opponents at 5 or fewer hits in a minimum of six innings in each of his first 4 games.
Maeda has scored and driven in the same amount of runs he has allowed, thanks to a homer he hit in his Major League debut.
