"Which starting pitcher has led the AL in ERA since last July 1? I hope you guessed Iwakuma. In 20 games, he has a 2.44 ERA, edging out Justin Verlander's 2.51 mark, and held batters to a .225 average"

Through Aug. 24, Ichiro was the victim of a league-high 31 GFPs that, without the superb effort of a fielder, could have resulted in a hit.
