reminds me of "Wild Thing" from "Major League' and Bob Uecker's commentary..."Just a bit outside"...."Ball 13"....if I remember correctly, most of the "game' footage was shot in old "County Stadium" in Milwaukee, right before it was torn down
We LOST the game. So who gives a crap about 9 pitches 3 strikeouts? WE LOST THE GAME.

We did lose the game .We also lost a lot of football games but yet people poinedt out positives in those efforts. We lost a lot of basketball games yet people rejoiced in MF's dunks. Doesn't negate the rare feat that he accomplished.

DfromCT..I have to agree with you on this one. I would rather pitch 45 pitches in 1 inning and win the game than 9 straight strikes and lose.

Quite a rare feat indeed. First time I can remember ever watching that happen in person because pitchers are usually instructed not to throw an 0-2 strike that is in zone range. And the Ump rarely calls an 0-2 strike for that same reason. I have seen a few 3 pitch innings over the years. Too bad it was for a wasted effort.

So what if it was in a losing effort? That was as impressive an inning as I've ever seen and I'm glad it got shared here.
Welcome to, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.
