We are compaining about only getting three hits through 4 innings. In his home starts, this same Norris held the vaunted Cards offense to 3 hits and one run over 6 innings DURING their hotest offensive streak.
Cubs, 5 hits and no runs over 7 innings,
Milwaukee, 4 hits and one run over 7 innings,
Colorado, 4 hits, 2 runs over 7,
His other two home starts were not great but not awful.
Cards - 7 hits, 4 runs over 6 innings
Mets - 7 hits, 3 runs over 6.2 innings.
Overall at home he is 3-1 with a 2.27 e.r.a. In half of his home starts he has given up one or zero runs.
No, I am not overly disappointed with getting 3 hits and a run against this pitcher in the first 4 innings. (the comment was made after the first 4 innings... not 5)
Meanwhile, Bailey has pitched 5 innings of shutout ball.
