robert --- It wasn't like there were a dozen or more errors in that game.  So how can you be so sure that it was a "sloppy" game?  How do you know it wasn't instead a night of outstanding hitting?

mgf --- Do they like American baseball in Australia and/or New Zealand?  I seem to recall that Australia had a pretty good women's softball team at the 2008 Summer Olympics, and the two sports are pretty close.

I like baseball because I use to play it in Primary school in the late 80's. As a sport it was visually appealing when playing it. With the diamond shape and hitting that ball with that bat.


I believe that the baseball teams train about 10 minutes away from my house in Western Sydney, but I am not sure.

mgf --- Baseball was known as "America's pasttime" for about fifty-to-sixty years, until football blew right past it!

Today the NFL and college football are far-and-away the top two spectator sports in the United States.  And both of their seasons will be getting underway shortly, with players reporting to training camp within a few weeks!

I like baseball games with lots of scoring in them!

Pirates cap off awful series with awful 20-0 loss to Brewers

I'm not sure if the Pirates were worried about Ben Roethlisberger threatening their monopoly on embarrassing Pittsburgh or what, but they just laid the mother of all stinkers against the Brewers.

The Buccos lost Thursday's game to Milwaukee by a score of 20-0, which qualified for the team's worst loss in the 124-year history of the franchise and left their PNC Park clubhouse in a funk. 

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

"Today was an embarrassment," reliever Brendan Donnelly(notes) said, snapping off every word. "We should all be embarrassed to have Major League Baseball uniforms on our back today. It was an atrocity. We set a record. We should all be embarrassed about it. That's how I feel."

If the record margin and this "highlight" reel on Yahoo! Sports minute weren't enough to make them think about jumping in any of the area's rivers, this list of dubious factoids about the series probably pushed them right in: 

•  The aggregate score of the three-game series was Brewers 36, Pirates 1.

•  Thursday's 20-0 score was the fourth largest margin in a shutout since 1900. Two more Milwaukee runs and the game would've joined Cleveland's 22-0 blanking of the Yankees in 2004 and the Pirates' 22-0 win over the Cubs in 1975. (One more run would've tied the Yankees' 21-0 win over the A's in 1939.) 

•  As Walkoff Walk's Dan McQuade points out, the Pirates had the worst run-differential in baseball (-37) coming in to Thursday's game. The 20-0 defeat only widened their, uh, "lead" to -57. (Baltimore is second worst in the bigs at -35.) 

•  The Brewers' starters went 3-0 with a 0.00 ERA, while the Pirates' starters went 0-3 with a 15.82 ERA.

• The Pirates were outhit 25 to 8 on Thursday and 46 to 18 for the whole series. 

• The Brewers hit eight home runs during the series while the Pirates only had five extra-base hits. All were doubles.

• Ten Brewers recorded an RBI on Thursday. Pitcher Manny Parra(notes) ended the scoring with a RBI single in the ninth inning.

With all of that considered, new fan Regis Philbin might want to reconsider his choice of bandwagon. The Pirates are somehow still only 7-8 to start this season, but eighteen straight losing seasons seems like a lock for the 'Burgh.

In addition to the slaughter that took place in Pittsburgh this week as Anon posted about, another bizarre event occurred at a college game involving Fordham University.  I have never seen a baserunner leap over a catcher to score a run, but here it is:

Lezfriend --- Now there's a girl who knows how to properly wield a bat!

  If only real Red Sox-Yankees games were like this!
