Alexander Smit Dispatches - 30 Games to Go
Smit worked 5 2/3 innings for the victory; the fifth consecutive start in which he has reached the sixth inning.
All three Wisconsin runs came on Robert Hudson's 5th inning homer. Otherwise, Smit retired the first 10 batters he faced and wound up with a 4 hit, 2 walk, 6 strikeout effort.
With Sunday's performance, Smit's ERA sits at a respectable, but hardly spectacular, 3.66. Still, it's a major improvement on the first two months of the season when the figure was closer to 9.
Since joining the rotation in late June he has not missed a turn, going 2-0 in 7 starts with a 3.12 ERA. In 37 innings as a starter, Smit has conceded 13 runs on 27 hits and 15 walks with 43 strikeouts.
