Would anyone have predicted this?
It's been a wonky season so far, no doubt about that. With some consistency in our pitching we'd probably be able to keep the .500 pace. The problem is our starters seem to go 6 innings giving up 2-3 runs or 3 innings and give up 6-7 runs. Our starters rarely shut out the other team, they most of the time give us a chance to win, and they sometimes just completely give the game away. I see our offense continuing to cool.
