Rangers @ Yankees scoreless through 5 innings. The Yankees Nestor Cortes has 8 strikeouts, with 1 BB the only blemish on his record today. ERA now 1.50. Rangers Jon Gray was pretty good, too, but left with 1 out in 5th due to unspecified injury.
   2. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:14 PM (#6075901)
Cortes at 7 innings, 10 K & 4 BB, on 94 pitches. Not likely he’ll come out for the 8th, but perhaps if the Yankees score a few Boone would be more likely to give Cortes a chance at a bit of history.

EDIT: No activity in the Yankees bullpen, so looking like Cortes will start the 8th after all.
   3. salvomania Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:15 PM (#6075902)
Cortes now through 7, at 94 pitches, up to 4 walks now, 10 Ks.

I'd bring him out for the 8th in the 0-0 game, but I'm just a fan.
   4. salvomania Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:16 PM (#6075903)
This Rangers' reliever Brock Burke looks pretty good, too. Got out of a major jam in the bottom of the 5th, has 4 Ks in 2 innings.
   5. salvomania Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:24 PM (#6075905)
Eli White pops the bubble with a one-out single in the 8th. That should do it for Cortes.
   6. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:24 PM (#6075906)
Little looping single to CF ends Cortes effort with 1 out in 8th.
   7. salvomania Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:42 PM (#6075910)
So Clay Holmes relieves Cortes, throws four pitches, and is in line for the win.
   8. salvomania Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:53 PM (#6075914)
Yanks' C Jose Trevino had thrown out 3 of 4 would-be basestealers, Rangers run anyway in the top of the 9th and pinch-runner Brad Miller is safe at 2nd as the potential tying run with two outs.
   9. salvomania Posted: May 09, 2022 at 03:55 PM (#6075915)
In 2020-21 Trevino threw out 8 of 58 attempted stealers (13.8%), so perhaps not as risky a move as I thought.
   10. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: May 09, 2022 at 04:17 PM (#6075917)
Cortes' pitching line today: 7.1 innings, 1 hit, no runs, 4 BB, 11 SO, 83 Game Score, no decision. Holmes got the win and Chapman the save in a game where this was the only run.
   11. Gold Star - just Gold Star Posted: May 09, 2022 at 06:42 PM (#6075944)
Dodgers are in PIT, and the LA radio crew just dropped this, which blew my mind: Pirates have played 27 games, winning 11 - and none of their starting pitchers account for any of those Ws. (ERA north of 5.00, too.)
   12. Howie Menckel Posted: May 09, 2022 at 07:23 PM (#6075947)
just came here to post about that !

Pirates starters are 0-10, the relievers are 11-6. one pitcher has 5 starts, but his lone win came in his lone relief appearance.

Quintana has thrown 3 scoreless tonight, but the Buccos are playing the Dodgers so of course it's 0-0.
   13. The Duke Posted: May 09, 2022 at 08:02 PM (#6075949)
Marisnick just tried to bunt for a hit three straight times. Seems like the element of surprise is compromised doing three times in a row
   14. Tom Nawrocki Posted: May 09, 2022 at 08:51 PM (#6075957)
Jose Quintana left after six innings with the lead, and the Bucs are up 2-0 in the bottom of the 7th.
   15. Howie Menckel Posted: May 09, 2022 at 08:52 PM (#6075958)
A-Rod's nephew had a moment, but....

05.09... Marlins optioned INF Joe Dunand to Triple-A Jacksonville.
Spin: Dunand played just one game during his brief first stint in the majors, but he made the most of it with a double and a homer. He'll hope to earn another trip back later this season.

OK this would be a Dugout post, but it seems like those don't get posted any more, so I'm putting it here...

Going through some pitching game logs for 1912, I just found this one. If I'm doing the math correctly from the seasonal stats for Allan Travers (which, apparently justifiably, only include this one game), his Game Score in this one was -52.
   17. . . . . . . Posted: May 09, 2022 at 09:13 PM (#6075963)
Nestor Cortes reminds me so much of Sid Fernandez.
   18. Gold Star - just Gold Star Posted: May 09, 2022 at 09:13 PM (#6075964)
Jose Quintana left after six innings with the lead, and the Bucs are up 2-0 in the bottom of the 7th.
Now 5-0 going to the ninth.

The platonic ideal of the Announcer's Jinx.
   19. The Duke Posted: May 09, 2022 at 09:21 PM (#6075967)
Marisnick borked his thumb on a diving catch which caused them to pinch hit next time through. They show a picture of Marisnick with his thumb all taped up talking to a teammate. Trainer comes up from behind and pinches his thumb (likely to check movement ) and Marisnick jumps three feet up and starts screaming at trainer.

"Does this hurt ?"

"F....yes, it hurts"

And dat's dat.

per Post 16, the SABR bio on him is great

"Through an extremely unlikely, almost unbelievable set of circumstances, a twenty-year-old college junior with virtually no baseball experience and little athletic ability found himself on the pitcher’s mound one bright, sunny Saturday afternoon facing the World Champion Philadelphia Athletics. The date was May 18, 191 - surely one of the most bizarre days in major league history–and the site was Shibe Park, Philadelphia. The pitcher was Allan Travers, a student at nearby St. Joseph’s College. A few years later, he would become Father Aloysius S. Travers.

On the previous Wednesday, May 15, the sixth-place Detroit Tigers were in New York’s Hilltop Park for a regularly scheduled game against the New York Highlanders. As the game started, no one could possibly imagine that it would become the infamous game in which an enraged Ty Cobb savagely beat an abusive, handicapped fan named Claude Lueker. On this fateful day he had been taunting Cobb with a steady barrage of profanity-laced abuse peppered with racial slurs.

Cobb stormed into the stands and battered Lueker with a vicious volley of punches to the face, and then stomped him in the abdomen with his spikes. Unknown to Cobb was that Lueker, a former pressman, had lost one complete hand and three fingers from the other hand in an industrial accident the previous year. With fans screaming at Cobb, “Don’t hit him! He has no hands!” the out-of-control Cobb reportedly shouted back, “I don’t care if he has no feet!”

Unfortunately for Cobb, American League president Ban Johnson was in the park that day. He had witnessed the horrific incident and was aghast, later informing Detroit manager Hughie Jennings that Cobb was hereby suspended indefinitely. After the next game on Friday in Philadelphia, sixteen Tiger players voted to strike in protest of Cobb’s suspension. They would not take the field again, they declared, until Cobb was reinstated."

"Enticed by the $50 fee offered by Jennings, Travers volunteered, even though he later confessed that he had never pitched a game in his life."

"the A’s won handily, 24-2, with Travers allowing all 24 runs on 26 hits, walking seven, and striking out one. The score was a respectable 6-2 through four innings until the A’s erupted for 16 runs over the next three innings."

"I was doing fine until they started bunting. The guy playing third base had never played baseball before. I just didn’t get any support."

No kidding! That was far more interesting than I expected this game to be. I love early baseball stories like this.
   23. Howie Menckel Posted: May 09, 2022 at 10:18 PM (#6075993)
yeah, I never post that long an excerpt - but I left so much out !
   24. Hombre Brotani Posted: May 09, 2022 at 11:36 PM (#6076012)
Mike Trout now officially the all-time homer leader at Angel Stadium with a 2-run homer. Ohtani followed with a solo homer of his own. The Angels are up 6-1 in the 6th, and if they win tonight, they'll be 9 games over .500 for the first time since 2015.
   25. Hombre Brotani Posted: May 10, 2022 at 12:15 AM (#6076016)
Calvin Faucher's big league debut is a rough one. Single, walk, single, RBI walk to Trout, grand slam to Ohtani. Gets his first out when Brett Phillips takes extra bases away from Rendon.

Big league hitters are mean.

Hombre, I wonder if you know how much baseball fans who don't give a rat's ass about the Angels overall would love to see Trout/Ohtani make a long postseason run.

never mind, I'm sure you already know.

it would be awesome for the sport.

Kyle Hendricks pulled with a shutout going after 8.2 IP with a 6-0 lead and a runner on. In fairness, he seemed to say that he was out of gas when Ross came out to pull him. But still, one out away with a 6-run lead, shame he couldn't finish it off considering how rare the CG shutout has become.

Though it would likely come at the expense of the Astros, I would be delighted to see Mike Trout get a ring, or at least appear in a WS. Ohtani should have plenty of chances in the future, but Trout doesn't have quite as much time.
