LOS ANGELES, CA – APRIL 25: Pitcher Trevor Richards /

Trevor Richards +.213

Trevor Richards did not earn a quality start in his fifth career major league game, only lasting 4 2/3 innings. He also didn’t collect a win, although he pitched well and the Miami Marlins did earn a win. He did accomplish something that no pitcher in the history of baseball has ever done before.

That’s right. Trevor Richards struck out 10 batters and didn’t complete five innings. He allowed zero runs and walked three. His pitch count, which reached 100, was the deciding factor in his removal.

The start was just the fifth of Richards’ career. He had previously earned a quality start on April 14th against the Pittsburgh Pirates. In that game, he allowed just two hits and a walk in seven innings of shutout work.

Richards put 62 of his 100 pitches into the strike zone and finished with a 69 GameScore.
