What You Need to Know

Weekend Wrap-Up, 6/2

by Daniel Rathman


The Weekend Takeaway
Nine innings simply wasn’t enough for the Mets and Phillies this weekend, so they decided to play a whole lot of extra baseball. Fourteen innings, to be precise—and not once, but twice.

That doesn't happen very often.

Before Saturday, there had been only 17 occasions in at least the last century on which a club needed a minimum of 14 frames to settle back-to-back contests, according to the Baseball-Reference Play Index. The most recent were the Angels on September 8-10, 2010, but those games were against two different opponents—the Mariners and Indians—and the Halos had a day of rest in between. The last two teams to play each other for that long on consecutive days were the Indians and Pirates, on June 20-21, 2003.

Not mentioned in the Manship write up was the fact that Sandberg let Manship bat with the WINNING RUN ON 3rd in the bottom of the 13th.

Not that it really matters, but the Mets and Phillies are actually playing a 5 game series (making up an earlier rainout, or something) and the finale is tonight.

So wait, why DIDN'T Price get ejected after he hit Carp? My understanding was, after the umpire issues a warning, the next time anybody hits a batter, he's gone, period. That's why Workman got ejected, isn't it?

No. You can fine the rule hear:

Basically, if the ump thinks a pitcher threw intentionally at the batter, he can (a) eject immediately or (b) issue a warning.

If he issues a warning then the next time a pitcher intentionally throws at a batter he has to eject. If the ump thinks the pitcher was not intentionally throwing at the batter, there is no penalty (regardless of whether there has been a prior warning).

Nailing two runners at the plate in the same inning during a game where you go 3 for 5 with a double, triple, and home run and drive in 5 is one hell of a game on both sides of the ball.

One other element of note to Sunday's Red Sox v Rays game: the Red Sox had 4 rookies in the field by the fourth inning, two of them in their first MLB game (Alex Hassan & Garin Checchini). Both got the first hits in the game also
