Chad Billingsley and the 6th inning.



This isn't a post to try to cast blame or negatively criticize Billingsley, but its becoming a trend for teams to score on Billingsley in the 6th inning. Entering into sunday's game, opponents were doing .310/.421/.417 in 108 PAs. While he has a .368 BABIP in the 6th inning suggesting him being unlucky, and its likely a fluke. It is preventing him from going longer into the game, and yet, Torre won't pull most times for a reliever, rather that that Chad work out his problems.

 

So why is Chad struggling in the 6th inning? Just a fluke or a mental hurdle that he must overcome?
