    If I told you that one of the starting pitchers from yesterday’s game between the Minnesota Twins and the Tampa Bay Rays struck out seven batters and allowed only six hits during a complete-game shutout victory, you would probably assume we were talking about Rays starter David Price.  However, Price would allow four earned runs […]

    The New York Yankees were looking to record their fifth win in a row last night and complete a three-game sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers in the process.  As for Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia, he was looking to extend a three-game winning streak of his own.  Much to the approval of the hometown crowd, both […]

    After launching two grand slams and scoring 14 runs in a route of the Detroit Tigers one night earlier, the New York Mets were looking for an equally impressive encore performance last night, and they got just that. The Mets’ bats were on fire once again, as they surpassed Tuesday’s total with an incredible 20-hit, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/11 — Cliff Lee

    Most Major League pitchers will not record three complete-game shutouts throughout the course of an entire season.  Cliff Lee had the opportunity to throw his third in a row last night when he took the mound against the Boston Red Sox.  Accomplishing such a feat is no easy task against the league’s most potent offense, […]

    Not many teams have been able to solve Colorado Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin lately, as he had given up only three earned runs in his last four starts heading into yesterday’s game against the Chicago Cubs.  One man who did have an answer for him was Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez. The Cubs bats were […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/24/11 — Ricky Romero

    In his last outing Ricky Romero pitched seven solid innings against the Atlanta Braves, allowing only six hits and two runs against.  However, he would still suffer the loss and he voiced his displeasure regarding the lack of run support following the game.  He was back on the mound yesterday afternoon, and this time around […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/23/11 — Tim Lincecum

    Thus far the 2011 MLB season has been a disappointment for Tim Lincecum by his standards.  He entered last night’s game against the surging Minnesota Twins with a 5-6 record and a 3.39 ERA, which is very un-Lincecum-like, but he improved upon both of those stats with a Lincecum-like performance. The two-time Cy Young Award […]

    The Cincinnati Reds entered the second game of their double-header last night struggling offensively during their recent homestand.  After losing 4-2 earlier in the day to the New York Yankees, they had only managed to score nine runs in their last five games, which all took place at the Great American Ball Park.  But something […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/21/11 — Seth Smith

    The Colorado Rockies entered last night’s game against the Cleveland Indians sitting right at the .500 mark.  In addition to moving them above that mark, a win would also keep them only 2.5 games back of the first place Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West.  They got that win thanks to a rather unlikely source. […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/20/11 — Tim Hudson

    The Atlanta Braves entered last night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays looking to record back-to-back wins at home for the first time since May 29.  Pitcher Tim Hudson did all that he could on the mound to get his team that elusive victory, but he didn’t receive much help from the rest of the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night is often reserved for those who put together a wonderful statistical performances over the course of a single night, but today’s honor goes to a man who has put up some great numbers over the course of the past four days.  That is the type of performance required to […]

    Most baseball fans expected the Philadelphia Phillies to dominate this season due in large part to their incredible starting rotation.  They have done just that, as they entered last night’s game against the Florida Marlins with a league-best 43-26 record and a six-game winning streak.  And thanks to a brilliant performance by starter Cliff Lee, […]

    Yes, I am well aware of the fact that Josh Beckett pitched a one-hit shutout last night.  Kudos to him, but before you begin to tell me about how he deserves the “Stat Line of the Night,” let me ask you the following question.  Did he receive two trophies for his accomplishment afterwards?  No, he […]

    Talk about Deja Vu!  On May 3rd this year, the Minnesota Twins’ Francisco Liriano pitched the first no-hitter of the season.  Only four days later it was Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers pitching a no-hitter of his own, becoming the second pitcher to do so this season. Fast forward to this past Sunday, when […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/13/11 — Hunter Pence

    Having lost eight of their last nine games heading into yesterday’s finale of their four-game series with the Atlanta Braves, the Houston Astros have been one of the coldest teams in baseball.  Oddly enough, they also currently have one of the hottest hitters in baseball in their line-up.  That would be right fielder Hunter Pence, […]
