This is just a quickie. Phillies fans will remember this well. In 1995, Tyler Green made the All-Star team after a first half where he went 8-4 over 96 innings, allowing 80 hits and 3 HR with a 2.81 ERA. However, in the second half, he went 0-5 over 44.2 innings, allowing 77 hits and 12 HR with a 10.68 ERA. You can get this info from his 1995 splits.
That's 1 HR every 32 innings in the first half, and more than 1 HR every 4 innings in the second half. That's quite a difference.
Green had some good games in subsequent years (such as this one) but was never regained his consistency from the first half of 1995.
