We hate to start this on a negative note, but just think of the fantasy managers who had hitters in their lineups facing Miles Mikolas on Tuesday.

So how exactly did Mikolas make history? By giving up 10 earned runs on 14 hits in just 2 2/3 innings, we witnessed the first time in MLB history that a pitcher gave up at least 14 hits, at least 10 runs, and did it all in fewer than three innings. of work. This is the worst start we’ve seen to 2022 for sure, and it’s hard to imagine it going much worse.

Mikolas’ ERA jumps from 2.92 to 3.50 and these Rocky Mountains benefited more from his outburst: CJ Cron had his 23rd homer and five more RBIs, Randal Grichuk went 5-for-5 with his 12th homer, three runs and three RBIs and Brendan Rodgers had four hits and three runs.

Peralta improves in second start behind

freddy peralta started to look a little more like himself in his second start back from his extended IL trip Tuesday night. Peralta pitched five innings against the Ray and allowed two hits, two earned runs, and zero walks. He struck out four on 65 pitches and, overall, had excellent command of the outing. His fastball speed remains down from last season, and the same can be said for his speed on his slider and curveball. But with the exception of two errors in all, it was tough getting to Peralta on Tuesday, and I expect more of the same going forward as the brewers build a backup of your pitch count.
