The season totals also reflect this (acc. mlb Mahay had 6 holds with the Braves and according to PI Mahay had 7 games for the Braves in which he recorded a hold).

This difference would occur whenever a reliever is awarded a win in place of a starter who didn't qualify.
This has happened 2093 times since 1957!

Shouldn't he lose the hold once he's awarded the win? I assume that if he had finished the game he wouldn't get the save and the win.

The triples were back-to-back.

Looks like you and I are the only ones who care about this particular topic, Oscar.

So, it's not a stat that has to do with season-long stats. Also, above, where I use the word "feat", that isn't supposed to mean it could be viewed as positive or negative. Indeed, for some of the eight it was positive and for others it was negative.

I actually had a fear when I posted this that he'd already know or would figure it out quickly. I already feel like a winner, now! 🙂

The answer is no, the Mets are not really involved in the answer, i.e. the fact that they all pitched against the Mets is not what I was looking for, nor does each guy pitching against the Mets have anything to do with it.
