Will Smith holds dubious mark

Sunday's disastrous outing by Smith marks the second time he's allowed five runs without recording an out in a game (other on July 10, 2014 against Philadelphia). No other active major league pitcher has had more than one such appearance in their career, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.
