Comments on: Mets – Cards Play Really Long Game http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/5478 This and that about baseball stats.

You have to wonder what would have happened if LaRussa had gone with a starter in long relief instead of position players.

Otherwise the game might still be going on. I love 1970's baseball and this game features a cuple dozen of my favorite ball players. The Cardinals had a pretty good team (Brock, Sizemore, R. Smith, Torre, Simmons, McBride, Rietz, and Tyson is a nice lineup, with J.Cruz, K. Hernandez, Hunt and Herndon off the bench. I also enjoy many of the Mets - Harrelson, Millan, Milner, etc.

Ray Bare must have been embarrased with his 1/3 of an inning while the 17-year vet Osteen pitched 9+ (with 4 AB's).

The losing pitcher was infielder Jose Oquendo who went 3 innings.

The game started at 7pm CT--- What's up with that?

Andy -I don't know the last time, but according to this ( http://reconditebaseball.blogspot.com/2009/08/previous-installments-can-be-found-here.html ) it was done by the Expos on 7-20-1990.

You could find it, if you piece together multiple Batting Event searches (RBI filtered for inning 10+. The good news is that if you choose to do it, the csv option can be very helpful. Sorry that I can't give you an easier answer

Has anybody else noticed that the NYC had a long day of baseball watching back on that day in '74? Look what the Yanks - they played a double-header with the 1st game going........17... wow!
