    Yesterday the Yankees struckout 14 times and did not walk. Tonight they walked 12 times (5 times in one inning!) and only struckout twice!

  2. Brian says:

    The Astros also committed five errors. I’d love to know when was the last time two such games occurred on the same day.

    - In addition to the 5 errors, Boston had 3 passed balls and a wild pitch.
    –One of the “errors” forced the rules committee to revisit one of their new rules and see if there were some issues with the umpires’ interpretation of them.
    —Carp threw 38 pitches in the ninth. The Yankees batters let 29 of them pass without a swing (23 balls and six called strikes), fouled off 8 (including a foulout to the catcher), and put just one into play fairly, inducing “bad contact” in the form of an easy double play.
    —-Very predictable, based on the information you just received about how his outing went: Carp got the nod for “sacrificial position player” because a position player is much less likely to injure his arm throwing knuckleballs than trying to throw a heater or a curve, and apparently Carp throws that pitch.
    —–Less predictable: None of the wild pitches or passed balls came in the ninth.
