The Georgia Peach…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 2:52 am

As I am listening to the Braves play in Chicago against the White Sox, Ty Cobb was having a pretty good game.  He had a 4-for-5 night with a home run, double, two singles, two stolen bases and five runs batted in.  I would say that’s a pretty good game.

The 19th seeded 1916 Detroit Tigers easily beat the 46th seeded 1914 Kansas City Packers 9-3.  The game was an offensive outburst by Detroit from the first inning with Cobb knocking in the first two runs of the game with a one-out HR.  Harry Coveleski (AZ) pitched a complete game getting three strikeouts and allowing eight hits and one walk.  Nick Callup (BY) allowed all nine runs as I was hoping to not have to use a reliever before his spot came up in the order the second time.  It probably didn’t matter since the Kansas City bullpen was rather weak as was the bench.  They had two decent pinch hitters and really only one decent reliever.  Still, it was fun watching the Tigers get sixteen hits and it would have been worse had the Packers not turned a double play.

As bad as Callup was, he struck out seven Tigers in only five innings of work.  The defense for both teams was Fielding Three, but that didn’t play into the game beyond one error I believe.  I am not expecting Kansas City to come back and take the next two since their third starter is a Grade D pitcher.  But as we all know, stranger things have happened and you can’t predict baseball!  Life is good.

There's a fine line between visionary and wrong. Unfortunately, it takes a visionary to see it.
