|Bottom 2: Carmona postscript||09.24.08 at 5:03 pm ET|
Fausto Carmona is gone from tonight’s game, having been lifted prior to the start of the bottom half of the second. Among those games in which pitch counts were logged by RetroSheet since 1956, there are only been three less pitch-efficient starts on record. In 2004, Chad Durbin recorded just two outs while throwing 51 pitches for the Indians. In 1997, Bartolo Colon needed 61 pitches in a start that lasted just 0.2 innings. And in 1991, Chuck Finley (then of the Angels, but later of the Indians–notice a pattern?) threw 55 pitches in 0.2 innings.
