    7.21.2024 - Let's Make It a Charm

    Can't find a Red Sox win since at least 1974 to be down 6+ in the 9th or later. I did find one such Dodger loss up 6+ in the 9th or later in that span though: August 21, 1990. That one was eight. LA up 11-3 entering the 9th, lost 12-11. Didn't even need extras.

    Box Score Surprises

    The Giants on May 7, 2007, Jays on August 24, 2005, Rockies on July 31 2005, Rangers on September 14, 1988 can all say this too, all with nine run fifths, finished with 9 runs. Largest I can find with runs all in one inning, scoreboard is a palindrome (so 5th inning) is 11 runs, done once...

    Glad to be here answering, thanks for asking. Yep, record there for most runs scored in an inning but only that inning is 13, actually done twice (assured to at least 1969, probably longer): -Braves, September 20 1972 -Phillies, April 13 2003 Dewey was in the Braves game, and draws an odd...

    Ah, okay, I misinterpreted this to be with the IBB, given the OP. My mistake. So let's re-run! Sadly pitch counts were only tracked regularly going back to 1988 for all teams although the Dodgers in particular tracked them for a long time before then. When you do it like that from the games we...

    Like the last nugget says--none until Bernardino last night. Only one other one led to any earned runs period (six with one UER), which was interestingly the last one on the 3rd of this month by Jose Cuas. And thanks much PCDF! My goal and pleasure to always research, answer, and respond in...

    Since the start of 2017 when the no-pitch IBB rule came into effect, Bernardino has just the 16th pitching performance (15th pitcher; Scott Alexander has done so twice) with a walk and three or fewer pitchers thrown. Here are a few random other tidbits about this type of outing I found: -Ninth...

    Man, that big zone is a pitcher's best friend right there. Not even a great frame job!

    For those curious, the most PA with RISP I could find (so starting in 1974) of the Red Sox having without a hit with RISP in a win? 0 for 26 against the Yankees, April 24 2004.

    Red Sox and Dodgers have never finished a game 1-0, in either direction. Yes, that includes 2018 and 1916.

    Man that's tough. So I tried ChatGPT here, because that's the theme, can a bot replace me? Can Ohtani get the bat on the ball? Can the Sox hit with anyone on? So far the answer is no to all of them. ChatGPT was full of more shit than my sewer, referencing the Tigers on August 18, 1967. Against...

    Duran got lucky he got a fastball on 1-2, knew it wouldn't run further out at that point... SUCH filth. Incredible for a guy even a lot of their brass thought was pretty fungible fairly recently.

    Classic. I laughed. But I can't imagine ever botting. Honestly. I'd never be able to answer people in real time with that. I always see myself as the weird sports stats radio DJ. I play the hits and questions on request.

    Can't play with your food like this against Vesia. Dude just nibbles so well on the corners and bites with a slider. Just such a tough movement contrast to Stone. From Stone's 12-6 movement to 5-7 on the out pitches of both.

    That was impressive. Work for your pitch, and especially impressive against Vesia who has taken a jump year, really underrated nationally I think beyond LA.

    Fourth time in the last 20 days Ohtani's worn the hat trick. He has only three such games the entire rest of the season. Ohtani also only four 4 strikeout games in his career, if that happens again. The first came notably enough against Boston as part of an 0 for 8, on August 30 of 2019, a 7-6...

    It's REALLY tough for sports. I used it actually earlier today to (unsuccessfully) try research guys who had led in MLB triples and homers* in the same year...and then it started making names up, like Stovey in 1883, nope. Like, I love ChatGPT to make up funny stories and scenarios but man I...

    A good magician never reveals her secrets...unless it's for SoSH. Always can give that away. I watch in real time as I do stats. But I suppose I could code the pregame notes I make every game, every team! Truly. I've seen two of Stone's starts this season in person: June 2nd against Colorado...

    Okay, random Dodger Stadium thoughts, been touring in a lot of them this year... Dodger Stadium is great. Assuming you get the close seats right behind home. Honestly enjoy it more than any park I've been to. Dodgers brought me a pin for my birthday this year. Great buffet with great dogs...
