Brad Lidge Had To Give A Run Up Sometime

14 May

It took until May 13th for Brad Lidge to let a runner touch home plate. Quite an impressive feat considering he’s pitched in 18 innings thus far this season.  The first 17 were scoreless and he was lights out during that stretch, but last night he finally gave up a double to Brian McCann which scored a run.  Even that was a play that was misplayed in the field by Jayson Werth:

Lidge then walked Greg Norton, but retired Jeff Francoeur on a fly to right field to end it.

“I read the swing, the crowd was yelling and I wasn’t able to hear the contact,” Werth said. “It was a one-handed swing. I read in all the way. It was definitely a miscue. You learn from it.”

Well, I’ll let Lidge slide on this one, even though his ERA has now ballooned to 0.50. However, I’ll be on his ass quicker than all hell if I see this guy give up another run throughout this season.  Jerkface.
