Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-5-2014

Milwaukee Journal, June 5, 1914:

Bob Long, former California State league pitcher, struck out all 27 of the men who faced him in a semi-pro game at Cincinnati—the remarkable part of it being that no one signed him the next day.

I don’t really care where you do it, when you do it, or who the opposition is. A perfect game with 27 strikeouts is mind-blowing.

Whoa, early Dugout today!

The Game of 6/4/84 featured the best team in the league, which had been slumping a bit after a historic start, and was facing both the team closest to it in the division (and in all of baseball, for that matter) and a highly uneven pitching matchup. During the game, they also got no RBIs from the first seven spots in their lineup.

None of that really seemed to bother them.

curious brewer things

jonathan lucroy continues to hit. .324/.394/.478 toss in good defense and that is one heckuva player so far in 2014

mark reynolds has 13 homers and 4 doubles. such splits have been discussed on bbtf previously with guys like mark mcgwire. still always striking to the reader when one comes across that in the stat line.

marco estrada's fip is 5.49. taht is.............concerning

Attention, Tigers fans: 13 losses in 17 games is not a slump, it is a free-fall.

That is all.

The Game of 6/4/14 featured quite a bit of good bullpen work from both teams. The team that ended up on top was the one that had its starter last an inning longer, thereby allowing them to stave off the appearance of their crappy reliever long enough to get to face their opponents' worst guy first.

Also, one of the two teams in this game is going to be the visiting side in the game I'll be attending in person this Saturday, so this was a nice chance to re-familiarize myself with the cast of characters.
