Entering Saturday’s game against the Marlins, Athletics closer Sean Doolittle hadn’t allowed a run in over two months. Doolittle gave up four to the Astros in abysmal performance on April 26.
The Marlins ended Doolittle’s scoreless innings streak at 26 2/3. In the bottom of the ninth, Giancarlo Stanton ripped a one-out double, then promptly scored on Casey McGehee‘s single to center field, tying the game up at 6-6. Doolittle escaped the inning without any further damage.
Doolittle is now carrying a 2.08 ERA, a 0.59 WHIP, and a ridiculous 56/1 K/BB ratio. His last walk came on May 20, when Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan drew a two-out walk.
