Hard to believe eh? But it is true.
Brian Matusz broke a record that was owned by Roy Halladay.
Giving up six runs in five innings on Sunday, he raised his ERA by 0.01 to 10.69 which is the worst ERA by a pitcher with at least ten starts.
Halladay had a similar bad season back in 2000 with the Blue Jays when he posted a 10.64 ERA over the season.
Since Matusz, who averaged barely more than four innings an outing in his 12 starts, came up one-third of an inning short, Halladay still holds the record of highest ERA for anyone with at least 50 innings pitched in a season. Matusz is the new record holder for guys with 40+ innings. Stu Flythe of the 1936 Athletics holds the record at 30+. He had a 13.04 ERA in 39 1/3 innings.
