On this day in baseball history ..

1938 - Johnny Vander Meer stuns baseball by pitching his second successive no-hitter, defeating the Dodgers 6-0, as Brooklyn plays the first night game ever at Ebbets Field. In front of 38,748 fans, including spectator Babe Ruth, Vandy strikes out seven and walks eight, including three walks in the ninth. A force at home and a fly ball end the game.

1976 - Rain out! The scheduled game at the Astrodome is canceled when heavy rains make it difficult for the visiting team and umpires to get through flooded streets to the stadium.

I remember that. Actually the players made it in, the Astros and Pittsburgh (I think), but were then trapped at the Dome. They ended up having a BBQ at the homeplate area....Umpires, fans, and press were not able to get to the stadium, and they ended up calling it a rain "in"

What a beast of a division in the AL East. The top 3 teams in the AL East would all be in first place in any other division in baseball.

I'm amazed the Red Sox have clawed back like they have after the slow start in early April. Not only do they currently have the best overall offensive stats in the majors (in what most said was supposed to be a down year for them offensively), Boston also has the best record in baseball since the 3rd week of April, and that is depsite a slew of injuries in the outfield (Ellsbury has played in only 9 games, Cameron was out for an extended period, and now Drew is banged up as usual...unknowns/journeymen like Nava, Hall, and McDonald have been carrying the load), not to mention without having an effective Josh Beckett. Pretty amazing that they are in 2nd place, just 1 game out (and, like I said above, they'd be in 1st place in any other division).

The Red Sox have battled back, no question. Exactly one month ago they were 22-21 and in 4th place 8 1/2 half back. Now 43-28, they have picked up 7 1/2 games in a month. Pretty amazing run.

Ok, so I sat down to watch the yanks last night. The 1st inning went about pretty much as I would have expected, then I fell alseep. How did it end up?

The wife and I are in Atlanta for the weekend Braves-Tigers 3 game series. Go Tigers! The thermometer on the car read 102 degrees as we pulled into town this afternoon. Ugh. At least we don't have to play...it will be hard enough just to sit in the heat. But we'll be representing in full Tigers regalia, hoping to take at least 2 of 3. Tigers are starting LHP Andrew Oliver in his major league debut, just called up from AA Erie to replace Porcello who was sent down to AAA Toledo.

Could you imagine Z acting that way with Billy Martin as his manager? That would be one big fight.

Anyone see the scores of the last 2 games Strasburg has started??

I believe the scores were 2-1, and 1-0.
Both losses.

Way to pick up the kid eh?

Anyone see that final pitch in the Braves-Tigers game? It should have been ball 4 and the game should have been tied. The pitch was about a foot outside and called strike 3, game over, Braves win. Wasn't even close. The umpire had the call made while the pitch was in the air rather than wait until it was caught. If the Tigers finish 1 game out or the Braves win by one game, it will be on that umpire.

I was at the game. Even the Braves fans were shaking their heads after that call.

Just like Jim Joyce on the Galarraga "perfect" game, the ump admitted he missed the call. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Not the same of course, but way worse than the Joyce call.

Yes, it was way worse than the Joyce call because, unlike the Joyce call, it impacted the outcome of the game. I attended all three games of the series. On Sunday Braves fans were actually apologizing to me about the bad call. The thing is, the game would never of even gotten to that point if the Atlanta bullpen hadn't screwed up so badly...walking the bases loaded, then walking in a run, and then if the right call had been made they would have walked in the tying run. Wow!
