Tonight’s game starts at 6:10 pm PDT. Kenta Maeda will be pitching for the Dodgers. I know the following statistics are from a small sample size, and we’ll never see anything like them the rest of the year. Yet, they are compelling, and are presented just to celebrate a 2-0 start to the year.
Pitchers: The average WHIP (Walks plus Hits divided by Innings Pitched) for the 2016 Dodgers pitchers is currently 0.444. The ERA is obviously 0.00. The ratio of strikeouts to walks (for the whole squad, not just Clayton Kershaw) is 10.50.
Hitters: Batting Average .307, On Base Percentage .369, Slugging Percentage .480, On Base Plus Slugging .849.
Fielding: Zero Errors.
