In the Yankees game last night, Mike Mussina and La Troy Hawkins both allowed hits on an 0-2 count.
This had me wondering: How many 0-2 hits have Yankees pitchers allowed since I started writing WasWatching.com (on April 20, 2005)?
Here’s the answer: 222 hits allowed on 0-2 counts.
Randy Johnson allowed 35 such hits and Mike Mussina, including last night, has allowed 30 (in this time).
