Sure, Pinto had that impressive April, but now that games mean so much more he has turned he has lost his effectiveness. His ERA since the All-Star break is a whopping 6.99.
He has been even worse lately. He blew it again Wednesday by coming into the game and turning a 2-2 game into a 4-2 deficit. He has given up five hits and a walk to the last 11 batters he has faced, and he has given up six runs over his last five appearances. That’s six runs over a total of two innings, or an ERA of 27.00.
