1969 Revisited Highlights
Permalink  
 


In the second game of the season between the Red Sox vs Orioles I had a rare ending. 

It's the bottom of the 19th with the scored tied at 2 and with two outs.  The O's are down to one pinch hitter with the pitcher due up and the Red sox have a lefty on the mound.

The remaining pinch hitter is the catcher Dalrymple who sucks against lefties.  I do have a 6 hitting pitcher (Jim Hardin) to pinch hit and if the O's don't score he can stay and pitch the 20th.

So I roll the dice and up pops a 2-12, boom, a walk-off homer for Jim Hardin off the pitcher's hitting card.

The starter for the O's was Cuellar who at one point had retired 23 BoSox in a row.

What a fun game to roll.

What an unlikely, albeit lots of fun outcome!  Great way for a game to end.

WOW!

That's pretty wild.  A pitcher hitting a game-winning pinch homer...and in the 19th inning, no less.

I can't say I've ever had one end like that.

I just looked up Hardin's career batting stats.  He had seven hits that season in 45 ABs (.156 average), two of which were homers.  The two homers also accounted for his only two RBIs that season.

Hardin hit one more homer, in 1972 (he was 2-21 that season).  He retired with a .103 career BA.

Hardin hit both his homeruns against righties. 2-12 on his actual PH card is lo(max).

It's a good thing you were playing Cards & Dice!

Always a dramatic if curious thing when a pitcher hits a walk off. 

It reminds me a little of an extra-inning game the White Sox played back in the eighites. It went over twenty innings and at some point Floyd Bannister, who had not hit since his time with the Astros years before, was asked to pinch hit. Although he was ultimately retired, I remember he hit a foul ball that narrowly missed going out for a home run.

In your game, the ball stayed fair, I guess. :)

 Yes it sure was N/O. wink

 It was wild, I had to look at the dice twice and double check the results off the pitcher card.

 In my 1964 replay I had Don Blasingame hit a walk-off HR in the 17th or 18th inning but it wasn't a pinch hit one.

Buddy Bradford playing for the Chicago White Sox hits for the cycle in a 11-10 loss to the Seattle Pilots. Bradford K'd in his 1st at bat, singles the next time up, doubles in his 3rd plate appearance, triples in the next ab, then homers to complete the cycle. In his last ab he is HBP.

Bradford's line is 4 5 4 with 3 runs scored.

This is my 6th cycle and 2nd natural one.

Congrats on the cycle, even if it was against the Pilots.

At least we got the win.

 Thanks.  Yeah, I thought the same thing when I notice after the HBP that he had hit for the cycle.

 Well the Pilots wanted to make it an extra special event to commemorate the cycle
