4/19 Linescores of the Day: Vazquez & Carpenter

In the day of juiced balls when baseball scores are looking more like football scores and everybody is happy with the numbers their fantasy hitters are putting up, it’s refreshing to see dominating pitching performances. This reminds me of the old joke when there’s this overpowering phenom pitcher totally dominating, strikes out all 27 batters he faces, in fact only one batter fouls off one pitch the entire ballgame. Of course the MLB scout immediately signs the hitter who fouled off the pitch to a multi-million dollar contract. The batters who got the hits were Doug Mientkiewicz & Esteban German for the KC Royals vs Javier Vazquez and Freddy Sanchez & Ronny Paulino for the Pittsburgh Pirates vs Chris Carpenter. Both the White Sox and the Cardinals defeated their struggling opponents 4-0.

  1. Albert Pujols got the Barry Bonds treatment in his 4/19 game (3 walks in 4 plate appearance), which is the only reason he didn’t have the Linescore of the Day. No homer in his only at bat, he made an out, DA BUM! :o)

  2. Vazquez and Carp were the odd ones yesterday. By my count, *thirteen* pitchers, allowed 5 runs or more (usually more).

    Definitely, a hitter’s day.

  3. and that’s no joke about Pujols getting the Bonds treatment.. I read an article somewhere (i wish i could find it) saying that Pujols is the new Bonds meaning teams are IWing or at least pitching around him.

    that would be a shame.

  4. perhaps you read it on the Baseball Zealot
