Daily Roundup, 04/18/11

Sadly, today was not the most interesting of days…

- This season, the Cubs have been 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6, 7-7, and after tonight’s game, 8-8.
– They played a 10-inning game in two and a half hours tonight.
— Carlos Zambrano struck out 10+ for the first time since his no-hitter in September 2008.

- Kevin Correia threw a complete-game four-hitter
– against the Reds.

- Francisco Liriano walked five today, and gave up two home runs.
– He only gave up two runs, because the home runs were both solo.
— He was pitching against Baltimore, who’s now lost eight in a row. BUT THE MAGICAL SHOWALTER PIXIE DUST?!

- Your current AL batting champ: Sam Fuld.

- Daisuke Matsuzaka threw seven innings of one-hit ball. Whaaa.
– Jacoby Ellsbury hit another home run.
— And Carl Crawford doubled and had an RBI? It’s unpredictable that we’re noting this at all.

- Tim Lincecum had a no-hitter through six. Not the most shocking thing ever. But it was in Coors!
– He’s the Giants’ all-time leader in 10+ K games now.

- The Phillies played their first game of the season that lasted over three hours tonight. Talk about efficient.
– They were playing the Brewers and IBBed Mark Kotsay twice. He wasn’t batting eighth.
This play. Turned by Yuniesky Betancourt, mind you.

    -The sequence of plate appearance results for the Brewers in the top of the 12th:
    1. Walk
    2. Sac bunt/E1 allowing batter to reach and lead runner to advance to third
    3. Sac fly; trail runner remains at first
    4. Hit batsman
    4½. Wild pitch (runners now at second and third)
    5. Intentional walk
    6. Sac fly; both trail runners advance
    7. Intentional walk
    8. Single; runner from second thrown out at home plate
    –That’s seven consecutive plate appearances without an official at-bat to start the inning.
    —And a team batting average of 1.000 for the inning–1 for 1.
    —-Also three runs scored on plays in which outs were made and zero runs scored on plays in which outs were not made.
