Eight goals for every team that moves…Giolito ‘dishonored’ after 124 years

Right-handed pitcher Lucas Giolito (29, Cleveland Indians) has a dishonorable record.

Giolito was charged with nine runs on seven hits (three home runs) in three innings of work against the Minnesota Twins at Progressive Field in Ohio on Friday. The start fell apart early, and Cleveland fell to 6-20 after catcher David Freese was tagged for seven runs on 10 hits in four innings.

Giolito’s nine runs on the day were notable because of his “history. According to stats site OptaStats, Giolito became the first player in 124 years to “give up eight runs in a start for three different teams in the same season. He previously gave up eight runs in three and two-thirds innings against the New York Mets on July 19 as a member of the Chicago White Sox and nine runs in three and two-thirds innings against the Atlanta Braves on July 3 as a member of the Los Angeles Angels. He then added a no-hitter against Minnesota to cement his place in Major League Baseball (MLB) history. 온라인바카라

The last player to do so was Bill Magee in 1899, according to Sports Illustrated. Magee was bouncing around the Louisville Cougars, Philadelphia Phillies, and Washington Senators at the time, “giving up a ton of runs. His record that year was 7-16 with a 6.15 ERA.

Giolito went 7-12 with a 4.88 ERA. He was traded to the Angels in late July from the White Sox. He was expected to be the Angels’ “closer” for the fall, but was recently claimed off waivers and reunited with Cleveland as the team struggled. It’s rare for a pitcher to be traded twice in a single year, and he’s been embarrassed by each team he’s moved to. Giolito’s MLB career record is 60-59 with a 4.42 ERA.
