I missed it.

 

Could someone explain how Hunter got credit for a save in the first game?

 

Thanks!

He came in with two men on (and tying run on deck).  He only recorded one out but i think thats all it takes to get the Save in that situation.

Saves: 

Rule 10.20 in the Official Rule Book states:

Credit a pitcher with a save when he meets all three of the following conditions: 

(1) He is the finishing pitcher in a game won by his club; and 

(2) He is not the winning pitcher; and 

(3) He qualifies under one of the following conditions: 

- (a) He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning; or 

- ( B)He enters the game, regardless of the count, with the potential tying run either on base, or at bat, or on deck (that is, the potential tying run is either already on base or is one of the first two batsmen he faces; or 

- © He pitches effectively for at least three innings. No more than one save may be credited in each game.

I'm surprised they let you come in with 2 outs and get a save just because the tying run is on deck. Pretty lame.

Pirates "extending their ABs' this inning.

 

Did they do that in 71 and 79 WS? Were such things followed then?

I'm fine with leaving it all up to the scorer.

 

I recall Johnson getting a bunch of saves last year where he put a couple guys on then escaped.

Anybody know a site that counts the number of pitches thrown after two strikes?

 

I'd wager the O's staff is up near the top.

 

Tillman's had six days off so he should be good to throw 130 or so tonight.

Please. No 71 or 79 WS memories.  :(

Ugh.

 

I missed 1971 but '79 was a nightmare.

 

Recently, the lead singer for Sister Sledge was in town for something or other and when I heard it mentioned on the car radio I had to pull of the road and regain my composure.

I'm concerned that they seem to have trouble finishing hitters off when they get two strikes on them and end up throwing a lot of subsequent pitches.

 

I'm probably just imagining it

I was only 7 y/o in 71, but my best friend in the neighborhood loved the Pirates and Clemente and I still remember him rubbing it in my face for a long time. Don't remember the games too much. 

 

Of course 79...I remember too well.  :(

"We are family" turned me against the concept of family for years. I don't remember 71 that well but, yeah, 79 was a kick in the gut. When Tim Stoddard hit the ribi single in game 4 to ice it and put the O's up 3-1 -- and in Pittsburgh, IIRC -- I thought they had it in the bag.
