Comments on: Consecutive 1(or less) Hitters http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/6785 This and that about baseball stats.

I remember that Tom Browning pitched a perfect game and later I believe took another perfect game into the 9th inning. Have any other pitchers taken more than 1 perfect game into the 9th inning?

@Frank: It's like if a team had 100 hits in Fenway Park, the scoreboard wouldn't be able to capture it because it can only fit 2 digits under Hits (they still have that manual scoreboard there right?). So it would either stay on 99 no matter how many hits there were - which is what the game scores are doing - or it would reset to 00 (01 02...) with everyone realizing there's already been 100 hits - which wouldn't work well for game scores.

Julio Franco hit a grounder to second that hit either a pebble or the lip of the grass and bounced over Manny Lee's head. Jim Traber fisted a liner that fell a foot or two over Fred McGriff's head down the first-base line. Stieb had a third one-hitter that year giving up an early hit to Jamie Quirk. No surprise, though, that he hit two batters in those games. 🙂

He plans on fixing in the next update.

Cadore faced 96 hitters! It entirely possible that the two men each threw THREE HUNDRED pitches that day.

Not too surprisingly, Cadore had eight days off, and Oeschger twelve. Oeschger also got rocked in his next three starts, but Cadore, after a rough day May 9, shut out the Reds in his next start, May 21.

Your right, I forgot to start at 50 and I only gave them 21 IP after the 4th.
Still, the scores are wrong.

Cadore: 50 + 78 outs + 22 IP completed after the 4th (*2) + 7 K - 15 H (*2) - 1 ER (*4) - 5 BB = 140
Oeschger: 50 + 78 outs + 22 IP (*2) + 7 K - 9 H (*2) - 1 ER (*4) - 4 BB = 153
