Home Runs = Hits Allowed


As many of you know, Julio Teheran somehow allowed six home runs in two innings on Sunday.  They were the only hits he allowed in the outing (thankfully).  As the title suggests, I ran a search trying to find the most home runs allowed in a regular season game where they were the only hits allowed.  Four pitchers managed to pull off the feat with five home runs:

I really don’t have any other comment to go with this chart.  It was a complete freak occurrence and hopefully nothing of that sort ever happens again to Teheran.

    Hopefully he can work on the fly ball tendencies in triple a

     @CarlosCollazo Unless he develops a two-seamer or slider, I don’t see him changing his batted ball profile.  He has a flat fastball, which screams line drives.  Changeups and slower curves tend to result in more flyballs than grounders.

    Colby Lewis joins this list, also managing 11 Ks in his outing.
