Baseball Reference

SDS

So, tonight I am going to look around on Baseball Reference, for fun. Got any things you want me to look up?
For example: What happened in the 4th inning of the Yankees game on September 6, 2009?
What count was Mike Trout's 300th home run on? What was the pitch type?
Stuff like that. Thanks in advance!

SDS

Can you do some research on complete games? I know Fernando had something like 20 or 21 his rookie season in 81. Is that a season record? who holds all time record? who's top 5? I know the old timers are going to rule this stat but I'm curious.

SDS

I know in the 80's the Oakland Athletics had three Rookie of the Years in a row. (Canseco, McGwire and Walt Weiss)

Have any other modern teams done this or gone four in a row?

SDS

Yes. Who won the 2016 World Series?

You should also explore retrosheet.org. Plethora of info on demand.

I would feel weird asking you to look something up for me, because instead of typing the question here I could just type it in another tab and find the answer lol. But I would probably be interested in some of the interesting, or off the wall stuff you might come back with.

Lol, not just lost , but lost 4-0 in Chicago. I remember watching that game. Those late 80s early 90s Yanks were not good.

SDS

If you can look up the least amount of pitches in a complete game. I'd be interested to see if it was under 80/85 pitches.

The yankees weren't good for a time? You've got to be kidding, right?

The shortest complete game was on August 10th, 1944. It was thrown by Red Barrett against the Reds, pitching for the Boston Braves. He needed only 58 pitches to shut out the Reds 2-0, giving up only 2 hits, and 0 walks. This is also the shortest night game ever, lasting only 1 hour and 15 minutes!
Fun fact about the game: There was no umpire at second base! Apparently that was a thing back then! 🤷

Whats most amazing about this season is not the 304.2 innings, the 22 wins, the 9 losses(that seems high), the league leading 268 strikeouts, or the 13 shutouts, but he was pinch hit for six times, and was never taken off the mound!!!

his six non complete games were

Start 1 April 10 vs Atlanta. 7 innings 1 R 0 ER. Pinch hit for in the bottom of the 7th(by Bobby Tolan) even though he was 1 for 2. No decision

Start 2 April 15 at Atlanta. 7 innings 3R all earned. Pinch hit for in the top of the 8th again by Tolan. No decision

Start 7 May 12 Vs Houston. 8 innings 3 R 2 ER. Pinch hit for in the bottom of the 8th by Tim McCarver He lost the game 3-2

Start 23 Aug 4 vs Cubs. 11 innings 5 runs 4 earned. They lost 6-5 in 13 innings. Phil Gagliano pinch hit for him

Start 30 Sep 6 vs Giants. First of a double header. 8 innings 3 runes 2 earned. He took the loss in a 3-2 game. Johnny Edwards PH for him.

Thats it. 28 complete games. Four extra innings complete games. Four eight inning complete games, including losing a 1-0 game to Gaylord Perry who threw a no hitter in 1:40 on Sep 17th.

From June 6 to July 30 he started 11 games, completing them all for 99 innings, and allowed three runs.

I was just reading through the thread and I thought I could add something that I think is unique considering how pitchers are treated currently.
