No K’s, no victory for Clemens

Roger Clemens is 1-3 with a 5.32 ERA. But the good news is that he’s costing only $872,000 per start. Come back, Matt DeSalvo, all is forgiven. We’ll get you a gift certificate at Borders.

In defense of the Rocket, he has mostly done what the Yankees have asked, which is to give them a chance to win.

Meanwhile, Clemens did not strike out anybody tonight. It is only the 11th time that has happened in 694 appearances. The last four times were starts when Clemens went less than two innings because of injuries.

You have to go back to July 21, 1987 to find a game when Clemens went at least six innings without a strikeout. And what a game that was as Clemens threw a five-hit shutout against the California Angels. He didn’t allow a walk or get a strikeout and threw 77 pitches.

I used the event finder at baseball-reference.com to look that up. What a great research tool.

Here is the audio from Roger’s postgame interview session. Hopefully it sounds OK as I was boxing out for position. Roger is an interesting guy to cover but a tough interview.
