A Look At Inherited Runners

Scott Elbert has allowed six of 18 inherited runners to score this season.

Facing the Diamondbacks for the third time in the last four weekends, I'm already kind of sick of them. So instead of focusing on Chad Billingsley likely giving up more than the one hit he allowed Arizona the last time he matched up with Josh Collmenter, I will turn to the bullpen.

Earlier this week, I broke down the stats for the Dodgers in 54-game increments, the first two thirds of the season. Delias Man asked about inherited runners in each period, and here they are:
