The Detroit Tigers’ newly-acquired starting pitcher David Price called last night’s drubbing by the Yankees "probably the worst game" he’s ever had in his life.
It’s definitely the worst. In fact, according to STATS, the former Cy Young winner became the first pitcher to allow nine straight hits in a game since Houston’s Bob Forsch gave up nine against Cincinnati on Aug. 3, 1989.
The meltdown occurred in the top of the third inning, beginning with a Jacoby Ellsbury single. Two Yankees doubles and six more singles followed, amounting to a "perfect order" (a term I think I just invented) as every Yankees batter hit safely off the same pitcher in a single inning, with no intervening outs, walks or errors.
Seven pitchers have thrown a perfect game since the last perfect order in 1989. Meanwhile, Royals fans are like this as they watch the score dial up like a pinball machine:
Catcher Francisco Cervelli took one shot straight to the junk. Apologies for the phantom pain you may endure after watching the clip.
Also check out some scenes from campuses where students have congregated in anticipation and of course, begun yelling profanities at opposing student bodies. Because what’s a collegiate gathering without beer muscles?
In case you missed it Wednesday, Packers QBs Aaron Rodgers and Matt Flynn eschewed suits in favor of fantastic denim getups to Green Bay’s welcome back luncheon. We asked on Twitter and still welcome feedback: Who wore it better?
