Comments on: Suggestions v. June 22, 2009 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/1800 This and that about baseball stats.

This has got me wondering about if this is close to a record, and what kinds of runs-per-game-related streaks exist.

In 1999 Brian Bohanon had a 6.20 ERA in 33 starts for COL w/ 1 SHO. Actually the next two on the list are also '99: Jose Jimenez and Bobby Witt each had 2 SHO despite ERAs over 5.80.

6/6/73 - 8 runs allowed in a save. Dave Goltz allows 2 runs in the 7th, 2 in the 8th, and 4 in the 9th, earning him a 3 inning save in a 13-9 game.

9/4/71 - Phil Hennigan allows 6 runs in earning a save.

8 run saves: 1
6 run saves: 1
5 run saves: 5
4 run saves: 23
3 run saves: 164

As expected, most of these were the 3 inning save variety. Only 73 of the 194 were shorter than 3 innings.

How is this possible?

He was the pitcher of record for the Nationals when a game was suspended earlier in the season.
The Nationals won in extra innings and Hanrahan was given the win even though he didn't play today...and he was with another team!

How many times has that happened?????????

Or even a no hitter? although that one seems like i could do it easily by just looking that list up. but the first list?

I was looking closely at his stats, and realized he never sucked. From 1965 to 1981 his OPS+ was 100 or more. That's 17 straight years. So...what other players out there can claim 17 or more years of 100 or more OPS+ seasons?

He had been tied with Dennis Eckersley with 4. 6 others have 3 one pitch saves. The shareit link ends in 8uBh (I still don't know how to post links here).

Additionally, it was his second one pitch, two out save. That ties him with Jeff Montgomery and Eckersley for most all time, with 2. The shareit link ends in mRfk (this link has all 19 such games).

Although this could be fun for any stat... pitcher wins, random player home runs....

This is the active pitchers with 200 IP in a season and the number of times they've done it.

How about the amount of years all current pitchers have pitched 200+ innings.

I think Buehrle has pitched the last 8 years with 200+ innings each year.
