Finished with a game score of 100. 15th time in history with score of 100 or higher with Cole being the last one to do it


What exactly does this mean?
Bill James invented a metric to quantify how a pitcher does in a game.

To determine a starting pitcher's game score:
  • Start with 50 points.
  • Add one point for each out recorded, so three points for every complete inning pitched.
  • Add two points for each inning completed after the fourth.
  • Add one point for each strikeout.
  • Subtract two points for each hit allowed.
  • Subtract four points for each earned run allowed.
  • Subtract two points for each unearned run allowed.
  • Subtract one point for each walk.

Kerry Wood's game against us in Wrigley was the highest ever at 105. Only 15 scores of 100 in a 9 inning game have every been recorded

This sounds like a system I would have made up when I was 12.

Love to plug some of Jim Clancy's Astros starts into it.

JV makes history, and I concur with the notion that he probably just wrapped up the '19 Cy Young.

Listening to TK on the HR call, he didn't think it was going out. He sounded shocked it cleared. And Bregs and Yordan hit balls in the first inning that I think everyone expected to go out and didn't.

Talk about a meltdown for the A's. The 8th inning was brutal and then the jacks in the 9th to finish it off.

I keep wanting Toro to put together good at bats, but man, he's struggling out there.

Hopefully today's game winner will be the start of a hot streak.

Watching on TV I was surprised when the outfielder gave up on it as I didn't think it was going out either

Larry Corcoran: 3 - June 27, 1883

Listed at 5-3, 127 pounds. In his rookie year of 1880, went 43-14 with 57 complete games out of 60 starts and threw 536 innings.


Based on those numbers I wonder if he invented the curveball or something?

Have the Astros had 2 no-hitters in the same season before? I can't remember it happening.

It was a different game back then. The players made essentially no money and went back home and farmed at their family farms after the season. It took 9 balls to walk. The outfield walls were routinely 600 feet to the power alleys. Sliding was not explicitly against the rules, but was considered a form of cheating. There were 7 bases but only 4 fielders. Players positions were distinguished only by their facial hair (this is why the shortstop is sometimes known as the 'Shaggy Brow' in contemporary parlance). There were 609 games in a season but most were cancelled due to dust. No doubt the game has evolved since then, not always for the better, but Larry 'Three Fingers' Corcoran is one of the best
