From Tuesday's WSJ:
Hiroki Kuroda of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Doug Fister of the Seattle Mariners have one request for the second half of the baseball season: a little more run support. Both pitchers are on pace to lose 18 games this season despite putting up first-half ERAs that are just above 3. No pitcher has lost that many games and finished with that low an ERA since Phil Niekro, who went 19-18 with a 2.88 ERA for the 1978 Braves.
