Brett Myers of the Houston Astros has pitched to a 1.41 ERA over the last month, 5th best of any Major League starter. In that six game span, Myers has gone 4-0 holding opposing batters to a line of .180/.273/.484.
One reason he's been so dominant has been his improved performance against lefties.
Myers managed to keep the ball away from lefties more over the last month, and they were unable to do much against him. They hit just .177 compared .302 prior to August 27th. Lefties also saw a drop in slugging percentage against Myers, falling from .509 to .278.
Myers is scheduled to pitch the last game of the season against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday. While the game will mean essentially nothing to the Astros, the Cards are just one game back of the Wild Card leading Atlanta Braves. Brett Myers performance tomorrow could play a large role in determining which team will be sitting home in October.
