Wacky Wednesday

Wacky stats from August 27-September 2 (the greatest day of the year) aka: Sober Day

September 2, 2006
The Devil Rays record a triple play without the ball even getting hit. The play is recorded 2-6-2 when Raul Ibanez strikes out, Dioner Navarro throws Adrian Beltre out at second, and Ben Zobrist throws it back to Navarro recording the third out. Also in 2006, the Pirates – one of my favorite teams EVER, lose their 14th consecutive game.

I’m born… pretty good day… the Sober Rankings begin…

The Mets complete the worst August home record of all time. Speaking of terrible, you don’t have to go to far to find another worst. The Yanks lose 22-0 that day, tying a major league record for biggest lost of all time.
August 31, 1997
Eddie George rushes for 216 yards on 35 carries as the Titans win their first game in Tennessee against the Raiders. Could you imagine any running back getting the rock 35 times in ’09?
