Indians Hot Corner: Stat Nerd—Votto, Kershaw, Soriano, more

By Ryan Lewis Published: September 29, 2013

1.83 - Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will finish the regular season with an ERA of 1.83. It's the lowest ERA of any player with at least 200 strikeouts since Pedro Martinez in 2000 (1.74). 

18 over 40 - With another victory on Friday night, Oakland Athletics starter Bartolo Colon notched his 18th win this season. He joins Jaime Moyer, Cy Young and Jack Quinn as the only American League pitchers with 18 wins in an age-40 season or older, per ELIAS. 
 
312 - Joey Votto had two singles on Friday night to reach base for the 311th and 312th time this season, passing Pete Rose for the Reds franchise record set in 1969. 
 
30/100 - With a home run on Friday night, Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz secured his seventh season with at least 30 home runs and 100 RBI, trying Ted Williams for the most in franchise history. 
 
20 W, 3 L - Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer is set to end the season with a record of 21-3 and an ERA of 2.90. He's just the sixth pitcher in baseball's modern era (since 1900) with at least 20 wins and three losses or fewer in a season, per ESPN. 
 
2,371,103 - On Wednesday the Cincinnati Reds drew over 26,000 fans to their game with the New York Mets. That pushed the Reds' season attendance total to 2,371,103, a new Great American Ball Park record. 
 
17/50 - As of Saturday Alfonso Soriano, who was traded by the Chicago Cubs to the New York Yankees during the season, had 17 home runs and 51 RBI in his time with the Cubs and 17 home runs and 50 RBI with the Yankees. He's only the third player with 17 HRs and 50 RBI with two different teams in the same season since Manny Ramirez did it with the Red Sox and Dodgers in 2008 and David Justice did it with the Indians and the Yankees in 2000. 
 
200 - Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle will end the 2013 season with 203.2 innings pitched. He's the only pitcher in baseball to log at least 200 innings in every year since 2001. 
 
Final WAR update - The Final Wins Above Replacement update of the season and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is blowing the field away according to FanGraphs. He's at 10.2 entering Saturday night, well above Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen, who at 7.9 overtook Miguel Cabrera (7.7) for second place. Jason Kipnis leads the Indians with a WAR of 4.4.
