Extreme Home Run Suppression

San Diego Padres lefty Alex Torres pitched two innings of shutout relief last night against the Cubs.  The former Tampa Bay Ray has now thrown 87 career innings in MLB and allowed only one home run*.

Torres is one of only four pitchers to allow fewer than two HR’s while throwing over 80 innings in the MLB integration era….
