These stats were lifted from Eric Wilbur's excellent Boston Sports Blog on

Case in point as to how Clement reacts when under pressure in different situations:

Bases empty: 3.09 ERA
Runners on: 10.68 ERA
Runners in scoring position: 15.63 ERA
RISP with two outs: 31.50 ERA

This says a lot, doesn't it? Now, obviously a pitcher is going to have a higher ERA when he has runners on than with the bases empty. But wouldn't you think that your ERA with runners in scoring position would be higher than your ERA with RISP and two out?

These numbers just confirm what our eyes have been telling us all year. When the going gets tough, Matt Clement gets knocked around.
