John asked: First game of the season and the first batter hits a home run.

The second batter sees one pitch when the starting pitcher has to leave for injury.

What is the starting pitcher's ERA?

Rick answered: John, thank you for you question.

There is a link in the right column of my home page, which contains a link to my Baseball Resource page, also located in my navigation.

On that page you can obtain the link for MLB Baseball Rules.

Figuring E.R.A's is located at the bottom of the table of contents, in the Rule Book.

Yours in baseball,
