RA Dickey against the Rays: 9 IP, 1 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 12 K.
- The Mets have blown out the Rays in both games of this series. The Rays were very hot coming in and the Mets were ice-cold.
– Pitcher wins are silly, but tonight’s Dickey/David Price matchup was only the second time ever that the AL and NL wins leaders have faced each other during interleague.
Cole Hamels: 6 IP and 6 ER (7 R).
- Against the Twins.
– The Phillies won anyway.
Wade Miley, on the other hand, against Texas, in Arlington: 7 IP, 3 H, 1 R/ER, 1 BB, 8 K.
- He lost for this line, by the way.
In the “Rockies reunion tour” category (thanks @townie813), Esmil Rogers had a 1-2-3 inning for Cleveland, followed by Jose Lopez homering off Aroldis Chapman (!!!!!!!!!!!).
It’s in Coors, but the As have seven runs.
- And are losing.
The Braves had twelve hits… and two runs.
- The RISPfail might help explain why a 3-2 Yankees/Braves game took almost four hours.
Nick Punto got two hits…
- in one inning.
– his OBP is higher than Adrian Gonzalez’s.
Did you know Lance Lynn has ten wins, which is first in the majors? I did not.
- He’s tied with – to bring this all full circle – RA Dickey.
Update: MATT CAIN PERFECT GAME!
- His fourteen strikeouts are tied for the most ever in a perfect game.
– The Giants have never had a perfect game before tonight.
— Before 2010, there had never been a season with two perfect games. Now we’ve got two of those seasons in three years, plus Armando Galarraga.
—- RA Dickey’s game score tonight was 95. It was not the highest game score of the night.
—– In fact, Cain’s game score of 101 is tied for the second-highest game score ever in a nine inning game.
