Last night Brewers left-hander Randy Wolf allowed a career-high 12 runs against the Pirates, which is doubly amazing because Pittsburgh has scored the fewest runs in the entire league this season.
Also amazing is that Wolf is the third Brewers pitcher to allow double-digit runs in a start this week. Seriously. He allowed 12 runs yesterday, Dave Bush allowed 10 runs Tuesday, and Manny Parra allowed 10 runs Sunday.
And in between all that, Chris Capuano allowed just one run to pick up his first win since way back in 2007.
When is the last time one team had their starters allow 10-plus runs three times in four games? According to the Elias Sports Bureau (via Adam McCalvey of MLB.com) it was the St. Louis Browns in 1937.
McCalvey also notes that there have been 13 instances of a starter allowing 10-plus runs across baseball all season and not only are four of them by Brewers starters, all four came within the past two weeks. No wonder manager Ken Macha is ornery.
