But in his second inning of relief, Rivera allowed a leadoff single to Frank Catalanotto, putting the winning run on base. With Wells at the plate, the Jays put on a hit-and-run sign, but Rivera's first pitch jammed Wells inside. Catalanotto took off for second and was caught stealing, giving Rivera the first out and erasing the baserunner.
But his next pitch, an inside cutter, caught too much of the plate, allowing Wells to deposit it over the left-field fence for the game-winner.
Apparently I was off a bit, Catalanatto was thrown out stealing, not picked off. Maybe it was a botched hit and run?
This is a nice column about how technological advances have made it possible to correct faulty memories. What's so bad about that?
If he was picked off and headed toward second, got into a rundown, etc... it would be scored as a caught stealing.
Isn't this common? I remember threads about some columnists faulty memories being common. Didn't Neyer take apart some guys memory of some big game?
Dodgers were in town the next day, so Tommy was 'scouting' in the stands.
Memory is terrible, amd the research has shown that memories described as vivid,or with 100% confidence are no more reliable than the typical memory.
It sounds like the punch line of a bad joke: The St. Louis Cardinals conceded a game to the Atlanta Braves in the 16th inning—and Atlanta won it in the 19th.
Maddux threw a 3-hit shutout that day against a pretty putrid Brave lineup, though he did walk 6 batters. It's amazing that Braves team finished last in runs scored despite hitting in the Launching Pad. Wow, were they bad. Bad bad bad.
Getting picked off first base with a runner on seoond? I never thought I'd say this but that is 10 times stupider than getting suckered in by the third-to-first move. I mean, how does this even happen? The 1B is not even holding the runner on in this situation. Somebody put a tracer on this tracer because I don't think I've ever seen a runner picked off first with a runner on second.
