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:
