Ramirez ERA continues to shrink

Cubs rookie reliever Neil Ramirez (Virginia Beach) continues to be a star for the Cubs bullpen. Last night in San Diego, Ramirez came on in relief of Travis Wood in the 8th inning after Wood allowed a 2 run homer to pull San Diego within one run. Ramirez promptly killed off any further threat for the Padres, striking out 2 batters to end the 8th, the 1-2 hitters in San Diego’s lineup, to set up a Cubs win.

Ramirez has now been unscored upon in 7 straight appearances and his tiny ERA has dropped even further to 0.84. He has 18 SO in just 10 2/3 innings pitched.
