Baseball Esoterica

September 28, 2005

Craps, Anyone?

The Orioles achieved an admirably estoeric feat last night against the Yankees: each of their first six batters drove in a different number of runs. Check it out:
Slot   Player    RBI's
1 Castro 0
2 Mora 5
3 Tejada 3
4 Gibbons 4
5 Surhoff 2
6 Lopez 1
(This reminds me of when Garret Anderson did this on his own. In six games between June 3 and June 8, 2003, Anderson drove in four, five, two, zero, three, and one runs. Cool, eh?)

And to make it just a little bit better, Gary Sheffield of the Yanks drove in six runs. Now, how many games have had different players drive in one, two, three, four, five, and six runs? Not many, I'm sure.

Also, twice in this game did one team score at least five unanswered runs after the other team scored at least five unanswered runs: After the Yanks scored the first run, Baltimore went up 5-1, then the Yanks took a 7-5 lead, then the O's came back with six to make it 11-7. What made it even more fun was that each set happened over two innings.

Extra Esoterica:
And even more esoterically, Javy Lopez, in his five plate appearances, managed to get exactly one hit, drive in one run, score one run, strike out once, and walk once. And just for good measure, he allowed one stolen base.
