Pittsburgh vs. Milwaukee, 1 July 2005

Mark Redman (4-6, 3.42) vs. Tomo Ohka (5-4, 3.50). I was surprised to learn that Okha's career ERA is 3.88. That seems remarkably low for a pitcher who doesn't strike people out, doesn't do a terribly good job preventing homers, and generally doesn't have much in the stuff department. In his stint earlier this year with the Nats, Ohka walked more batters than he struck out, which would lead one to think that ERA would rise; since being traded to the Brewers, though, he has struck out 14 batters and walked just one. Go figure.
