Who Is This Guy?

Cole Hamels is getting lit up by the Pittsburgh Pirates. 5-0 at the moment thanks to three home runs from Garret Jones, Delwyn Young, and Andrew McCutchen. Hamels has allowed 5 or more ER in four of his 16 starts (25%). He’s usually solid early in the game, which makes his start tonight even more baffling.

The Pirates are not just abusing one of Cole’s pitches; they’re hitting both his fastball and his change-up.

  • Garrett Jones home run: Fastball
  • Ryan Doumit double: Change-up
  • Delwyn Young home run: Change-up
  • Andy LaRoche double: Fastball
  • Andrew McCutchen home run: Fastball
  • Ryan Doumit double: Change-up

Let’s hope J.A. Happ can lock down a series win tomorrow.
