...than his problems in big situations. He's had more than a couple, and we are now talking about a 30+ game sample size. Game 7 in the Series last year is a perfect example.

Yes, the line looks fine... 7 IP, 4 ER, 5Ks, and his team has to get him some runs, but that hit per inning is the same as last night (and he gave up three home runs in that game 7 btw). That is not 'ace' level, and certainly not the kind of pitcher he is during the regular season. He throws up CG SHOs at will from April to September.

It's just amazing really. Anyway, game log below. Note the game 5 WS loss in 2017 as well and the who gave a shit 2 IP in game 7. Warms my orange and black heart.
