So no condolences are necessary for that 1991 game, although plenty of condolences may be necessary for everything else I've endured.

My apologies! I assembled my list from game lists copied from several PI runs, and I must have just missed that one. Thanks for the correction. (And, I assume, belated condolences for the ending of that 1991 game.)

But you missed this one, from a game I remember watching: June 13, 1991, Cubs vs. Giants. With the bases loaded, Andre Dawson (7 assists in RF that year) caught a fly ball off the bat of Mike Kingery and threw out Tony Perezchica (zero SB, 1 CS) at home to end the game. Cubs win 4-3.

The Engle game is mine -- mine, I tells ya!

The good stuff is always off limits, isn't it? (-;รพ What's that old line? โ€” something like, "Put a million stat geeks on the Play Index for a million years, and eventually two of them will pull up a game-ending triple in a game that ended tied because of rain." Maybe I've garbled the line a little, but no matter . . . everyone knows it.

And here's a nugget from the Engle game that you may not have noticed, John: Two batters behind Engle is the outfielder who, five years later, threw out Dave Kingman at the plate to end the 8/9/86 Twins-A's game (see my post #15 above).

That was the second game of the same day to end tied. I guess they were going to replay them but the strike threw everything off?
