I just watched the highlights of that Balt-Tex game.


HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!


It was on TV here last night because we get all the baltimore games but I'm not a Baltimore fan so I didn't watch (instead I watched the Nationals lose ).

30-3!!! They should invoke the slaughter rule on that one

I was at work and I checked mlb.com on my blackberry to see some of the scores...I was convinced this was a blackberry problem until I actually saw that it truly was 30-3.

I see 24-6 or something, and I'm like "wow, what a beating", but, seeing 30 runs is fucking surreal.

Try to translate 30-3 into a football or basketball score.

Football: Like 96-3

Basketball: Like 185-90

Unbelievable what happened last evening.

the average baseball team scores about 4 runs per game.. the average football team scores 20.

so that game translated into football terms would make it about 150-14... roughly.

basketball would be about 400-70.

I could see the Patriots beating some team by that much this year. <grin>

OK, not really.

Highest I could see a football score going is the 50s or 60s -- it would go against the code to go higher than that.

Didn't the Bears win a playoff game 73-0 back in the day?

And If I recall, Neil Lomax' college squad (Portland State I think) once scored over 100.

If randhail can pull Phil Plantier out at any given moment, then you must be on the lookout for the occasional Neil Lomax or Gary Hogeboom from me.

The funniest thing about the box score from last night is Wes Littleton got the save in a 30-3 game. His second of the season but he met the criteria.

Quote:
The official scorer shall credit a pitcher with a save when such pitcher meets all four of the following conditions:

(1) He is the finishing pitcher in a game won by his team;
(2) He is not the winning pitcher;
(3) He is credited with at least a third of an inning pitched; and
(4) He satisfies one of the following conditions:

(a) He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches at least one inning;
(b) He enters the game, regardless of the count, with the potential tying run either on base, or at bat or on deck (that is, the potential tying run is either already on base or is one of the first two batters he faces); or
(c) He pitches for at least three innings.

Thank God Wes Littleton was there or else the Rangers may have lost that game!

A well-earned save. <laughing>

They ought to revisit the rules.
