Longest Game in League History

The Paws defeated the Southpaws 5-4 today in a 21-inning game, marking the longest game in league history. Jim Thome suffered the dreaded 0 for 9 ABs. Detroit got 8 2/3 innings from Frank Owen their long-reliever, making it easier to get through the game without devastating the bullpen. Similarly, Chicago's Bob Rhoads pitched the final 8 1/3 innings of the game.

A two-out error by Wally Pipp, who was playing out of position in CF after pinch-running earlier in the game, allowed a Paws baserunner in the 21st inning. Bill Freehan followed with a game-winning RBI double.

There was no scoring in the 8th thru 20th innings and Detroit limited Chicago to 9 hits in the entire game, while striking out a total of 17 Southpaw batters.

All-Star Game(s)

The All-Star game was played today, with an practice scrimmage beforehand.

With the A.L. having a 111-92 advantage in interleague play thus far this year, I had intended to make them the home team, but played a game with them as the visitor by mistake. I had also placed the starters and long relievers with "Before pitch count is achieved" settings, but this had the effect of basically limiting them to one batter. Anyway, for that game, we actually had the best amount of participation amongst the rosters as the A.L. got 25 of the 28 players into the game, while the N.L. had 24 of the 28 players get into the game. The A.L. won that practice game 5-4 with Ted Williams and Jason Giambi accounting for all the RBIs.

In the real game, after putting the A.L. as the home team and normalizing the SP and LR settings, the A.L. showed that their dominance in the regular season also applies to the All-Star Classic, clubbing the N.L. by an 11-6 score. N.L. Starter Orval Overall could only record one out in the 1st inning, surrendering 2 walks, 2 singles and a double. Tim Lincecum relieved him and gave up a 3-run homer to Sammy Sosa. After an inning the A.L. led 6-2 and after extending that lead to 8-2 a few innings later, it was just a formality from there. The N.L. used 24 players in trying to make a comeback, but with the huge lead the A.L. was not inclined to make offensive substitutions and thus only used 18 players.

Ted Williams of the Los Angeles Rally Monkeys was named All-Star game MVP with his 3 for 4 performance, with 2 doubles, a triple, 2 runs, an RBI and walk.

Top performances/achievements through Day 45

Johnny Bench is the unlikely candidate who set a new league record - he holds each hit in his hands
Day 5 - The Sluggerrrs pounded out 29 hits (tied for 3rd most in league history at the time). Kansas City outfielder Lloyd Waner led the way with 6 hits, becoming the 11th different player to record that many hits in a single game.
Day 28 - John Smoltz of the Texas Ranger Captains had a no-hitter working with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th inning, but Minnesota's Ken Griffey, Jr. broke it up with a clean single to left field. Smoltz went 29 pitches over his normal pitch count as he chased history.
Day 34 - Detroit Paw outfielder Ed Delahanty was held without a hit for the first time this season, as Houston ended his 27-game hitting streak. This tied for the 5th longest streak in league history.
Day 41 - Despite a very disappointing season thus far, the Oakland Stompers came with loaded bats on this day, pounding out a new league record 33 hits, enroute to a 22-4 victory over Seattle. The 33 hits bested San Diego's previous record set 4 seasons ago by 2 hits. Davey Lopes, who had only 43 career hits coming into the game, amazingly added to the list of players who have achieved 6 hits in a single game, but he'll now be tied for the 2nd most hits in a game. That is because Johnny Bench recorded his 7th hit of the game with two outs in the top of the 9th inning, to break the league record. This is a feat only accomplished twice in the history of actual MLB in a 9-inning game. Bench raised his average 34 points in this one single game.
Day 43 - Bill Dickey became the latest in a long list of players who have swatted 3 HRs in a game, tied for the league record. Who will get that elusive 4th?
