Myers Gets Lit Up

Brett Myers got rocked tonight against the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park. Reason to worry?

Myers Gets Lit Up

Brett Myers has a 5.91 ERA after nine starts this season.

How much should the Phillies be worried?

Consider:

  • He is tied for the fourth-worst ERA in the National League.
  • He has the highest ERA on the team after Clay Condrey threw a scoreless inning tonight.
  • In 4 2/3 innings tonight against the Braves, Myers allowed nine hits, eight runs (six earned runs) and three walks. He struck out six.
  • He served up three home runs to add to his major-league leading total of 15 homers allowed.
  • He has pitched more than five innings just four times.
  • He has just three quality starts.
  • In his last five starts, he is 0-3 with a 7.62 ERA (18 earned runs in 24 innings).
