Re: Is it coincidence................(Harang)
It has nothing to do with the relief apperance.
Harang gave up 5 earned runs and 10 hits in 5 innings the week before the relief outing. Since then he's had two bad games (6 ER in 4 IP and the 7 ER in 5 1/3) and one good game (a 3-2 loss to the Phillies high-powered offense).
Here's what Harang had to say:
"I don't have a feel for anything right now," Harang said. "Leaving pitches over the plate, it's just not normal for me. I've got to work on some stuff and figure out what it is and go from there."
Sounds mental more than anything, not hitting his spots. Cueto had a stretch where he gave up 20 ER in 19 innings. Outside of that stretch he's only given up 22 in 55 innings. There was no reason, it just happens. It's just a slump in a game of slumps and streaks.
