    There were three 1-0 games yesterday. One went 13 innings and matched the teams with the best (.300, Orioles) and worst (.220, Blue Jays) batting averages with runners in scoring position this year. Orioles went 0-11 with RISP and Jays went 0-13.

    In another 1-0 game Kershaw got the win in his first game back after being out for nearly 6 weeks with a back injury. He's tied for the most wins in MLB (16-2) and 13th in strikeouts.

    I dunno, I dont see the Nationals reaching the World Series because they always choke in the NLDS.

    That can change in a heartbeat. They certainly have the talent to make it all the way. My team used to habitually choke in the WS & LCS for several years....then along came that glorious October of 1995. :cool:

    Trivia time:

    Today back in 1981, the longest game ever for a certain ballpark was played. The game went 19 innings, and was suspended with a tie score of 7-7. The game resumed the next day and was finally won 8-7 in the 20th inning. At what ballpark did this multi-day game take place, and what team ended up winning?

    I didn't remember that. I remember 1981 as the year the middle third of the season was wiped out by a strike, and there was a weird gimmicky playoff format that left the NL teams with the best overall records in their divisions (Cards, Reds) out of the playoffs. And that was the season of Fernando-mania.

    I actually had to look that up to figure out how on earth that worked. :confused: Considering I turned 1 the December after that season, that was well before my recollection of the game. Kinda reminds me of what occured in last November's elec....wait...wrong thread...wrong sub-forum. Carry on. :cautious:
