Stat Line of the Night — 6/24/2013 — Jeremy Hellickson
Pitchers have had a tough time quieting the Toronto Blue Jays’ bats throughout the course of their 11-game win streak, as they have averaged 6.36 runs per game over that stretch. However, there was one man who was up to the challenge of shutting down the Jays’ hot bats, as Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa Bay Rays did just that during last night’s game at the Trop.
Through seven innings of work against the Jays, Hellickson allowed just one hit, four walks and zero runs against while striking out four batters on the evening. He would hand a 4-0 lead over to his bullpen, as they surrendered a single run before putting the finishing touches on a 4-1 victory.
With the win, Hellickson improves his record to 4-1 in the month of June with an ERA of 3.94. He’s had some ups and downs this year, but last night’s performance was clearly one of his best, and it earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, June 24, 2013.
