  1. Not to mention the homer in the 18th was with the backup shortstop pitching. A.J. Hinch said he could’ve gone 22 innings before using a position player. Wild game…

  2. Not just a backup shortstop, but a backup shortstop who was DFA by the Diamondbacks a few weeks earlier and picked up by San Diego. He pitched an inning for Arizona earlier in the season, but that went better for them- and wasn’t with the game on the line.

  3. I love everything you guys do, but turning the picture of the graph into a link that sends you to the scoreboard page for this game would be super awesome.

  4. I watched every single pitch of this game. I was impressed by the fans who stayed for the whole thing, but shocked that so many of them seemed to stay in their assigned seats. There were maybe 2,000 people who stayed for all 18 innings, and many of them seemed to be in the upper deck(s).

    I can’t imagine that the ushers wouldn’t let them sit field level when they stayed that long, so either the fans were content to hang out in the upper levels, or Petco has the worst ushers in the history of baseball.

  5. I consider myself fairly aware of all the different team’s player. but I’ll be honest in quoting Major League the movie in saying…

    “I’ve near heard of half of these guys!”

  6. Off one of the most extreme groundball pitchers in the majors, no less
