Quietly dominant

Overshadowed by a slow start, Mat Latos has quietly put together another dominant year on the mound. He finished his 2011 campaign with 7.0 shutout innings of two-hit ball last night over the Cubs, leading the Friars to a 2-0 victory.

Over his last 23 starts of the season, beginning with his May 25 outing, Latos went 8-8 with a 3.13 ERA (52 ER/149.1 IP), .229 opponent batting average and 8.6 strikeouts per 9.0 IP. During that span, he averaged over 6.0 innings per start while allowing just over two runs per start. Latos matched last year’s total with 31 starts, while besting his 2010 workload with 194.1 innings of work this season (184.2 IP in 2010).
