10 early-season surprising stats [Globe]

I'm not your typical journalist. I love statistics. Databases? I eat those for breakfast.

I compiled 10 of the most surprising statistics in the first month of action, and they are available for your consumption in gallery form at Enjoy. And because I love stats so much, you'll find a few surprising Yankees statistics if you continue reading.

Not sold on Pettitte

Andy Pettitte
Don't get me wrong, I couldn't have been happier to see No. 46 back on the mound on Mother's Day in his signature style, shielding his face from the batter.

Everything looked like it was going great until the sixth inning, when Andy Pettitte allowed five hard hits including a two-run homer to Casper Wells, his first of the year. He had thrown just 63 pitches before the inning began.

Remember, he was facing one of the worst offenses in the league. The Mariners were hitting .233 as a team going into today's action (13th in AL) with 129 runs scored (10th).
