This past June 2nd the Indians and Tigers played a tight low scoring game in a nifty 1 hour and 44 minutes. Both Fausto Carmona and Armondo Galaraga were on and the Tigers, behind a solo shot from Miguel Cabrera and another 2 late inning runs, beat the Indians 3-0.
One significant part of the game was that neither team threw 100 pitches. In fact it was the first non-shortened game since 2007 and just the 12th since 2000 to feature less than 100 pitches from both teams. Here are the others:
Some observations about the games:
- Two of the games (#9, #11) featured a bottom of the ninth. Only #11 consisted of 54 outs.
- Not surprisingly, Greg Maddux started in 3 of these games for 3 different team. It is also not surprising that he didn't finish any of them.
- The fastest game here was #7, which was played in 1:41.
- The most total runs scored in any of these games is 5 (#2). The Padres beat the Dodgers 3-2 in April of '07.
