Baseball Reference: Span of Games Searches Enhanced in Play Index Game Finders

here’s a few concrete examples of searches that can now be completed: [...]

* Jorge Soler is just the third player since 1914 with an extra-base hit in each of his first five career games.

* Since 1914, only Dwight Gooden had more double-digit K games in his first 83 games than Yu Darvish.

* The most wins by a non-playoff team in the Wild Card Era from Games 82-162 is 52 by the 2006 Angels.
