Yahoo: Jackson: Two pitchers combine for 347 pitches

After 501 pitches, the game finally ended.

New Orleans (La.) Jesuit had bettered Metairie (La.) Archbishop Rummel in an 18-inning pitchers’ duel and the 2-1 victory was exactly what everyone had anticipated when it was announced that both teams would be throwing their ace pitcher.

LSU signee Mitch Sewald started for Rummel; Emerson Gibbs, a Tulane signee, for Jesuit.

Of those 501 pitches needed to decide the victory, the two young arms had accounted for 347 of them.

Sewald pitched 10 innings allowing one run on two hits. He recorded 10 strikeouts and threw 154 pitches. Gibbs pitched 15 innings allowing a single run on six hits. He recorded 13 strikeouts and accounted for 193 pitches.

You guys take it from here…

Well, for one game I'm less worried about pitch counts. What would worry me (were I a team interested in drafting either guy) was that while this one game might be just an outlier, in a normal game these guys probably routinely throw 100+ pitches (and likely quite a bit more than that). That's what would concern me.

347 is a prime number. So is 193 for that matter.

In a high school 10-inning 2-hitter, I'd expect way more than 10 strikeouts.

There's two names I can mark off my 2015 Draft List.

This is an interesting tidbit to the game, but it seems odd to not point out that with the win Jesuit is now in first place in Louisiana's District 9-5A.

Flags fly forever.

Can't wait to see them both on the Yankees' DL.

They're at the top of Dusty Baker's.

"Just myself alone, on shoulders and elbows, probably 400 or 500 (a year)," he [Dr. James Andrews] told the Tulsa World at the time. "In three weeks - the last two weeks of April and the first week of May - I did 36 Tommy John procedures. Most of them were high school kids. That's unbelievable. That's a major operation.


How is that possible?

He must not charge that much. Insurance wouldn't pay for that operation, would it?

But 501, alas, is not.

Bah, I saw a Jersey kid throw 216 pitches in a high school varsity playoff game in the mid-1980s.
True story.
