    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/27/12 — Felix Hernandez

      In just his second start since recording a perfect game on August 15th, pitcher Felix Hernandez didn’t get much offensive support from his Seattle Mariners teammates, as they recorded just one run against the Minnesota Twins last night. Luckily for them, that was all King Felix would need. Hernandez continued to stymie opposing batters, […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/26/12 — Matt Holliday

    Despite the loss of Albert Pujols during the off-season, the St. Louis Cardinals are proving that they are still World Series contenders, as they entered yesterday in sole possession of the second wild card spot in the National League.  With the three-time MVP now playing for the Angels, the rest of the Cards’ line-up has had […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/23/12 — Alex Cobb

    Make no mistake about it.  Alex Cobb of the Tampa Bay Rays is no David Price.  Not even close.  But he may someday be a special talent like his team’s ace currently is, and yesterday’s game certainly appeared to be a step in the right direction. Cobb, 24, delivered what was probably the most impressive […]

    Exactly five years ago yesterday, the Texas Rangers lit up the scoreboard with an astonishing 30 runs against the Baltimore Orioles, setting the mark for most runs in a single game since the Chicago Colts set a Major League record with 36 runs of their own back in 1897.  Fast forward to last night, as […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/21/12 — Adam Wainwright

    After undergoing Tommy John surgery and missing the entire 2011 MLB season, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright found himself struggling to regain the form that saw him record 19 and 20 wins during the 2009 and 2010 seasons, respectively.  However, it suddenly appears as though the 2010 All-Star is finding his groove once again, […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/20/12 — Will Lucas (LLWS No-Hitter)

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/20/12 — Will Lucas (LLWS No-Hitter)

    Being called upon to pitch in a nationally televised elimination game is enough to make a Major Leaguer nervous.  So one could only imagine the feeling going on in Will Lucas’ stomach when the 12-year-old righty was called upon to take the mound for Fairfield, Connecticut during their Little League World Series elimination game against […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/19/12 — Aaron Hill

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/19/12 — Aaron Hill

    Aaron Hill has been having himself a solid second season with the Arizona Diamondbacks (acquired last year in a trade with the Jays), and it has been highlighted by a few memorable days at the plate.  It began on April 7th, when Hill moved into the number two spot in the Diamondbacks’ lineup, and responded […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/15/12 — Kris Medlen

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/15/12 — Kris Medlen

    On July 31st, the Atlanta Braves inserted Kris Medlen into their starting rotation.  It appeared to be a good decision after the 26-year-old righty recorded wins in two of his first three starts, and it is looking even better following his fourth start of the season last night. Not only did Medlen improve his record […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/14/12 — Hiroki Kuroda

    In a battle between the American League’s top two teams, the New York Yankees were looking to increase the gap between themselves and the second-place Texas Rangers by earning wins in the first two games of their four-game set.  Monday’s victory was the result of some solid hitting, as the Yanks opened the series with […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/13/12 — Cole Hamels

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/13/12 — Cole Hamels

    It took Cole Hamels until August 7th to record his first complete-game shutout of the season.  It didn’t take him nearly as long to record his second. Hamels earned the “Stat Line of the Night” during his last outing, as he allowed just five hits and no earned runs during the Phillies’ 3-0 victory over […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/12/12 — Kevin Durant

    The USA men’s basketball team entered the final day of the 2012 Olympic Games with a perfect 7-0 record, but despite their dominating performance up to that point, a loss to Spain in Sunday’s final would still make their visit to London an epic failure.  With all of that pressure staring them in the face, […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/9/12 — R.A. Dickey

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/9/12 — R.A. Dickey

    Heading into last night, Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey appeared to be the favorite to win the National League Cy Young award, and his performance against the Miami Marlins should only help his chances. Dickey entered the game with a 14-3 record and a 2.82 ERA, and he improved his numbers in each of those […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/8/12 — Giancarlo Stanton

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/8/12 — Giancarlo Stanton

    The Miami Marlins rank an abysmal 29th in the league in runs scored this season, but their offense was certainly alive and well during last night’s thrashing of the New York Mets, and it was being led by none other than their slugging right-fielder, Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton stepped up to the plate five times during […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/7/12 — Cole Hamels

    The Philadelphia Phillies have been having themselves a terrible season by their standards, but for Phillies fans who are looking to take something positive away from 2012, they need not look any further than Cole Hamels’ performance on the mound. Hamels has been having himself a solid 2012 campaign, and it continued last night against […]
