Hoch's 2012 Splits

Rummaging thru the 2012 splits on Good Luke/Bad Luke provided a series of insights into his bipolar pitching:

-Had 16 Good Luke starts, and 16 Historically Bad Luke starts.

-Three starts with 6+ days rest had 3.31 ERA and 1.163 WHIP

-Days games 1-8 W-L, 9.64 ERA and 1.851 WHIP

-Night games 7-8 W-L, 4.23 ERA and 1.254 WHIP

-Bad first innings (7.59 ERA)

-Pitching from behind (to 36% of batters) gave up huge run totals

-Lefties walked more and hit better

-Faced lineups loaded with lefties (54.4% of PA's)

-Batting Average for Pitch Count 26-50 was .243, 51-75 was .314

-First pitch hitters (10.9% of PA's) hit .385 with an OPS of 1.044

-Gave in to 7/8/9 hitters too often

-The 8th place hitter walked one every eight PA's

-The 8th/9th place hitters got seven homers in 153 PA's

-HR/9 Road 0.98 vs. Home 1.71 (ie. Kaufman Stadium...)

To bottom line Hoch's season - the problems were pitching in day games, left handed batters, bad first innings and pitching from behind.

Other than that, Luke was awesome this year.
