Can Milwaukee’s Corbin Burnes Deliver MLB’s First Sabermetric Pitching Triple Crown?

Yet even among this illustrious group, Corbin Burnes is enjoying the most spectacular season of all. The Brewers right-hander has posted his fair share of statement games, including a record-tying 10 consecutive strikeouts in a start in August and eight no-hit innings with 14 strikeouts in Milwaukee’s combined no-hitter in Burnes’s most recent start.

The totality of Burnes’s performance this season, moreover, is unprecedented. Right now, Burnes leads all qualified National League pitchers in both strikeouts (12.4) and walks (1.7) per nine innings; the only other AL/NL pitcher to lead his league in both is Walter Johnson, all the way back in 1913.

Oh, and Burnes is ahead of all other NL starters in home run rate, too, having surrendered just five dingers all season, or 0.3 per nine innings. Nobody has ever led his league in all three categories in the same season before./blockquote>

So how do the bullpens stack up when it is Dodgers 0 Brewers 0 after 7 innings of game 1 of the NLCS?
