For an entire season?
Yes. That is terrible.
For a single game?
No. It's not good, but it's not terrible either.
Terrible is one of those games where you give up more runs than innings pitched and burn out the bullpen by getting yanked before the fifth inning. Giving up three runs in six innings is considered a quality start. Leake gave up one too many runs for it to be considered a quality start, but kept his team in the game. Surely there has to be some middle ground between 'quality start' and 'terrible'?
