Clip Files for September

After bizarre swings of 5-15 in July and 15-5 in August, things evened out at 10-10 in September, giving Applegate 77 wins on the year. With four more wins in October, Applegate will post its sixth consecutive season with a winning record. … After Kyle Hendricks allowed just one hit in six innings en route to a 1-0 win in the series opener over Margaritaville, the Volcanoes proceeded to reel off four straight wins, outscoring the Clips 29-12. That outcome was responsible for the Clips being outscored 79-70 on the month. … Applegate stole 11 bases in September but also was caught 11 times. … Hyun-Soo Kim led the Clips in batting at .433.  Through 140 games he leads Applegate in hitting at .310. … Xander Bogaerts and Josh Donaldson each hit four homers as the Clips socked 22 for the month, holding opponents to 14. … Tyler Chatwood used up his remaining innings and suffered losses in all four starts, dropping to 11-13 on the year. … Andrew Miller went 2-0 with two saves in seven scoreless appearances. In nine innings of work, Miller allowed just two hits while fanning 11. … Reliever George Kontos, whose epic horrendous July (0-5, 11.88 ERA, 16 hits, eight walks in 8 1/3 innings) was a primary factor in the Clips’ 5-15 month, redeemed himself a bit with 10 scoreless innings in September. … The Clips carried an extra reliever in September and against Tatooine, six of the seven pitched scoreless ball, with Ken Giles the only one to allow runs. … Applegate pitchers have allowed just 121 homers, fewest in the league. … The Clips have fallen to 11th in batting average and 12th in homers, but still are fourth in the league in ERA and are are plus-71 in run differential.
