I mentioned in a (brief) post last month that my PC guy, Joey Gallo, had as many homers as he did singles at that point in his professional career (89 of each). I thought that was nuts.
But then I went back earlier to look at the box score of the Rangers 30-3 drubbing of the Orioles int he first game of a double header back in 2007. Something really shocked me.
Wes Littleton recorded his second career save in that game.
Let me repeat that in a different way: there was a save in a game in which the margin of victory was 27 runs.
Talk about adding insult to injury. That just hurts.
Thanks to the back-loaded scoring and time of Littleton's entry into the game (he came in in a save situation), a save was registered in a game where the winners scored 27 more runs than their opponents.
What is your favorite crazy stat?
