Petit couldn't even make a proper throw to 2nd even though he saw the entire play develop.

 

Blows my mind that pitchers need a windup to throw accurately.

Forreal, if time wasn't called that could've been a disaster. Blanco had to leap for that.

Making a throw to a base =/= throwing a pitch.

They're def two different things, especially guys with funky deliveries.

But all guys should be able to make throws to bases laugh.gif but I understand why some struggle laugh.gif

Was it the CF sneaking in or was it the intentionally overthrow to the cf trying to trick him into going for 3rd with the cf waiting for the overthrow?

Baseball History - July 4 (Click to show)
1881 On his birthday, Mickey Welch throws two complete game victories when Troy sweeps a doubleheader from the Bisons at Buffalo's Riverside Grounds, 8-3 and 12-0. The 22 year-old future Hall of Famer, who finishes the season with a 21-18 record, will complete 525 games of the 549 he starts for the Haymakers (NA) and Giants (NL) during his 13-year tenure in the major leagues.

1884 In American Association action, Louisvillel right-hander Guy Hecker pitches complete games to win both ends of a doubleheader. The Youngsville, Pennsylvania native does not walk a single batter when he beats the Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers at Eclipse Park, 5-4 and 8-2.

1900 Approximately one thousand people in the crowd of 10,000 fans attending the game at Chicago's West Side Grounds celebrate Independence Day by firing pistols into the air. The Orphans shoot down the visiting the Philadelphia team in 12 innings, 5-4.

1905 Rube Waddell beats Cy Young and the Americans, 4-2, when the A's score two runs in the 20th inning. Both of the future Hall of Fame hurlers go the distance in the Huntington Avenue Baseball Grounds marathon.

1908 With two outs and an 0-2 count in the ninth inning, Giant pitcher George Wiltse loses his perfect game when he hits the opposing pitcher, George McQuillan, with a pitch. 'Hooks' keeps his no-hitter intact when New York wins the 1-0 Polo Grounds contest in the tenth, scoring the winning run on a Philadelphia error.

1911 Armando Marsans and Rafael Almeida become the first Cuban natives to appear in a major league game as they both make their debut for the Reds. Appearing as pinch hitters in the eight inning, Almeida strikes out and Marsans singles in the 8-3 loss to the Cubs at Chicago’s West Side Grounds.

1912 Tiger pitcher George Mullins celebrates the nation's birthday and his own by throwing a no-hitter against the St. Louis Browns. In addition to his excellent pitching, the 32 year-old also collected three hits and drove in two runs during the 7-0 victory.

1925 In a battle of southpaws at Yankee Stadium, Herb Pennock and Lefty Grove of the A's hook up in a 15 inning pitchers' duel which the Bronx Bombers win, 1-0. Penncock retires the first 18 batters and the last 21 batters he faces.

1932 Bill Dickey punches and breaks Carl Reynolds’s jaw after the Senator outfielder collides with him on a close play at home plate. The American League suspends the Yankee catcher for 30 days and fines him $1,000 for his one-punch fight.

1935 Due to his 'wandering' ball, Iola hurler Harold Liell, a 5' 6 1/2", 155-pounder with pigeon-toed feet, is called up for a tryout with the Kansas City Blues. The K.C. manager Dutch Zwilling is impressed with the young southpaw's performance, but advises the Greeley, Kansas lad to get more experience, suggesting he suggests he play in the Ban Johnson League.

1938 The Phillies move into Shibe Park by splitting a twin bill with the Boston Bees, losing the first game, 10-5, and winning the nightcap, 10-2. Problems with the Baker Bowl made it necessary for the Phils to share the Athletics' home field at 21st Street and Lehigh Avenue.

1939 It's Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day at Yankee Stadium and ‘the Iron Horse’s’ uniform number 4 will be the first ever to be retired. After emcee Sid Mercer informs the sell-out crowd the man of the hour is too moved to speak, Gehrig changes his mind when Skipper Joe McCarthy encourages him, and delivers the keynote address in baseball history, describing himself as "the luckiest man on the face of this earth".

1939 In a slugfest at Shibe Park, Red Sox third baseman Jim Tabor hits two grand slams in the same game as well as a third home run in Boston's 18-12 victory over the A's. It's only the second time the feat has been accomplished, both coming in a game against the Philadelphia A's.

1955 In Three-I League action, Keokuk Kernels’ hurler Mudcat Grant hits three home runs in consecutive innings. During his 14 year major league career with seven teams, the right-hander from Lacoochee, Florida will go yard six times.

1964 Kansas City's Manny Jimenez, who didn't homer in 1963, connects for three in a 6-6 tie with the Orioles. The game is stopped by a special Baltimore curfew to permit a fireworks show to take place.

1966 In his first game after being sidelined a week with a fractured cheekbone, Ron Santo sets a franchise record, hitting in his 28th consecutive game. The streak will come to an end when the Cubs' third baseman is held hitless in the nightcap of the twin bill against Pittsburgh.

1967 Opposing his younger brother, Joe, Phil Niekro goes the distance to get the victory when the Braves beat the Cubs at Atlanta Stadium, 8-3. Joining Jesse and Virgil Barnes, who face one another five times as starters in the 1920's, the Niekros become the second pair of siblings to start in the same major league game.

1969 At Kansas City’s Municipal Stadium, Bob Oliver becomes the first player in Royals history to hit a grand slam. The center fielder's eighth-inning blast comes off Jim Bouton of the Pilots in an eventual 13-2 KC victory.

1970 Brothers Billy and Tony Conigliaro both hit home runs in the Red Sox's 5-1 victory over the Tribe at Fenway Park. The Boston outfielders become the eighth different set of siblings to have homered in the same game, a feat which has occurred only 13 times in major league history.

1972 In front of a large holiday crowd gathered at Shea Stadium for a doubleheader against San Diego, Tom Seaver takes a no-hitter into the ninth inning for the second time in his career. After getting Dave Roberts to ground out to second base, Leron Lee singles up the middle to spoil the no-hit bid of the 27 year-old Mets right-hander, who has to settle for his fourth one-hitter when he induces the next batter to hit into a game-ending double play.

1976 After hitting an apparent grand slam in the top of the second inning, Tim McCarver is credited with only a three-run single when he passes teammate Garry Maddox on the base paths in the Phillies' 10-5 victory over the Pirates at Three Rivers Stadium. The other base runners are allowed to score on the Philadelphia catcher's 'grand slam single' because only the player who passes his teammate is called out and there were less than two outs.

1977 In the bottom of the sixth at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, 22 year-old Tiger phenom Mark Fidrych gets two quick ground ball outs, before giving up six runs on six consecutive hits and an intentional walk. 'The Bird', last year's Rookie of the Year and Cy Young Award runner-up who has already won 6 of 8 decisions this season, appears to lose all of his effectiveness after throwing a pitch with an unusual motion, and will win only four more games before retiring in 1980 after compiling a 25-11 record before this start.

1977 The Red Sox snap a nine-game losing streak by blasting a record-tying eight home runs in their 9-6 victory over Toronto at Fenway Park. The octet of round-trippers, hit by George Scott (2), Fred Lynn (2), Bernie Carbo, Butch Hobson, Carl Yastrzemski, and Jim Rice, match the major league mark shared by the 1939 Yankees, 1953 Braves, 1956 Reds, 1961 Giants, and 1963 Twins.

1980 Nolan Ryan, the losing pitcher in Astros' 8-1 loss to Cincinnati at Riverfront Stadium, fans Cesar Geronimo in the second inning to record his 3000th career strikeout. The Reds' outfielder was also Bob Gibson's 3000th victim in 1974.

1982 Celebrating Independence Day at Mile High Stadium in Denver, 65,666 fans watch an American Association contest and enjoy a giant fireworks display after the game. The gathering is the largest crowd in minor league history.

1983 At Yankee Stadium, southpaw Dave Righetti no-hits the Red Sox to become the first Bronx Bomber left-hander to throw a no-no since George Mogridge accomplished the feat in 1917. Rags's 4-0 no-hitter is the first for New York since Don Larsen tossed his perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

1984 Yankee hurler Phil Niekro strikes out Ranger Larry Parrish to become the ninth major league player to reach the 3,000 strikeout milestone.

1985 In a 19-inning game, which goes until just before 4 a.m. the next day, the Mets beat the Braves, 16-13. After the 6 hours, 10 minutes game, the 1000 fans left in Atlanta Fulton County Stadium are treated to pre-dawn fireworks which awaken and frighten many of the ballpark’s neighbors.

1985 With a double in the first, a triple in the fourth, a homer in the eighth inning, Keith Hernandez completes the cycle with a single in the twelfth frame of a 19-inning contest with the Braves. The Mets first baseman’s four hits, all off different pitchers, contribute to New York’s 16-13 early morning victory at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.

1989 Tom Browning just misses becoming the first hurler in big league history to throw two perfect games when Dickie Thon's leadoff double in the ninth breaks up the Cincinnati southpaw's bid for perfection. After the Philadelphia shortstop scores on a Steve Jeltz single, John Franco replaces the disappointed pitcher and induces Lenny Dykstra to hit into a game-ending double play, giving the Reds a 2-1 victory at Veterans Stadium.

1998 The National Baseball Facility of Ireland, considered the main home of the Irish National baseball team, officially opens in Corkagh Demesne Park in Clondalkin, West Dublin when U.S. Ambassador Jean Kennedy throws out the ceremonial first pitch. Dodger owner Peter O'Malley played an instrumental role in the construction of the diamonds now known as the Fields of Dreams, which includes a regulation sized adult field and an international standard Little League field.

1999 Jose Canseco becomes the first player in major league history to hit 30 home runs with four different teams. The Devil Rays' DH reached the mark previously with the A's (1986), Rangers (1994), and the Blue Jays (1998).

2000 Becoming only the third player in Cardinal history to homer in his first career at-bat, Keith McDonald pinch hits a home run in a 14-3 victory over the Reds. Eddie Morgan [1936] and Wally Moon [1954] are the only other Redbirds to accomplish the feat.

2001 The Brewers' new home, Miller Park, continues to be jinxed as a parachutist breaks his ankle when he misses the opening in the retractable roof and lands on a beam several hundred feet off the ground. Another member of the Sky Knights Sports Parachute Club missed the stadium completely.

2001 The fifty people stranded on the Ferris wheel ride at Comerica Park for two hours during the Kansas City-Detroit game are rescued by firefighters and emergency crews using a cherry picker and a fire truck ladder. The inconvenienced fans will receive tickets to another contest, free dinner and team autographs from the Tigers.

2003 In a 10-3 victory over New York, the Red Sox score all their runs with the long ball, hitting a record seven home runs off the Yankees. Prior to today's Independence Day fireworks, the Bronx Bombers had given up six homers in a game four times, including twice to Boston (1997 and 1977) and the Indians (1970).

2004 The selection of Barry Bonds, Ken Griffey Jr. and Sammy Sosa as starters in the NL All-Stars line-up marks the first time in baseball history in which three players with 500 career home runs have appeared on the same team. The trio will appear in the starting outfield in the 75th All-Star Game in Houston’s Minute Maid Park.

2006 Yankee owner George Steinbrenner's 76th birthday is less than festive, as the Indians provide all of the fireworks in a 19-1 Independence Day rout over the Bronx Bombers. The victory is the Tribe's most lopsided victory at home since the 1950 team, scoring 14 first inning runs, beat the Philadelphia A's at Cleveland Stadium, 21-2.

2006 Nomar Garciaparra ties the major league record for being hit by a pitch in a game as he is plunked three times by three different Diamondback pitchers in a 10-4 Dodger victory. The LA first baseman is the first National Leaguer to equal the mark, both literally and figuratively, since the 2000 season when Astros outfielder Richard Hidalgo got thwacked thrice in a game in April.

2006 Billy Wagner becomes the 20th pitcher baseball history to record 300 career saves. The significant save for the Mets' southpaw, who has also played for the Astros and Phillies, is his sixteenth of the season.

2008 Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki needs 16 stitches to close up a gash in his right palm caused by a maple bat when he pounds it into the ground in frustration and it shatters. These types of bats are under scrutiny of a major league investigation because of their tendency to shatter when the hard wood breaks instead of just cracking like the bats made from softer ash.

2009 In his 4,145th big league at-bat, Adam Dunn hits his 300th career home run in Washington's 5-3 win over Atlanta at Nationals Park. The 29 year-old left fielder is the fifth quickest player to reach the milestone, behind only Babe Ruth (3,830), Mark McGwire (3,837), Ralph Kiner (3,883) and Harmon Killebrew (3,928).

2011 Shaun Marcum becomes the first Brewer pitcher to hit a grand slam for the franchise since 1969 when Fred Talbot accomplished the feat in the inaugural season of the Seattle Pilots, a year before the team moved to Milwaukee. The 29 year-old right-hander's first career round-tripper isn't enough to get a victory when he earns a no-decision in the team's 8-6 loss to Arizona.
Baseball History - July 5th (Click to show)
1898 Lizzie (Stroud) Arlington becomes the first woman to play organized baseball when she pitches for Reading in the Eastern League. Some believe she also pitched in Atlantic League exhibition games after being hired by Ed Barrow, the league's president.

1904 It takes extra innings, but the Giants' winning streak is finally snapped at 18 games. The Phillies beat New York, 6-5, in a 10-inning walk-off victory at the Baker Bowl.

1921 The Red Sox establish an American League record losing four consecutive doubleheaders with no other contests between the eight defeats. The dubious streak started with four losses to the Yankees in New York and continues at Fenway Park with another four to the Senators.

1935 Tony and Al Cuccinello each hit a home run, making it the first time in major league history that brothers on opposing teams have hit round trippers in the same game. Tony's Dodgers beat Al's Giants, 14-4.

1937 Hal Trosky hits three home runs, helping the Indians beat the Browns, 14-4. The first baseman from Norway, Iowa will finish the season with 32 round-trippers.

1937 In the first game of a doubleheader, Frank Demaree goes 6-for-7 (three doubles and three singles), helping the Cubs edge the Cardinals, 13-12, in 14 innings. The Californian adds two more singles in Chicago's 9-7 victory in the nightcap.

1945 ****** Lockman homers in his first major league at bat in the Giants' 7-5 loss to the St. Louis at the Polo Grounds. The 18 year-old southpaw-swinging center fielder goes deep off Redbird left-hander George Dockins.

1947 Larry Doby of the Indians becomes the first black to appear in the American League, when he strikes out as a pinch hitter against Chicago hurler Earl Harrist. The 23 year-old former Newark Eagle standout will play in the major leagues for 13 years, amassing 1,515 hits, just three less than Jackie Robinson.

1952 In their final season in Boston, the Braves play in front of the largest home crowd of the season when 13,405 fans watch Brooklyn beat their team for the 12th consecutive time, a 5-3 complete-game victory by Carl Erskine. The most memorable moment of the contest occurs in the second inning when the game is delayed because a small dog has to be escorted off the field by Dodger outfielders Carl Furillo and Duke Snider.

1953 Blanking the Pirates at Forbes Field, 2-0, Robin Roberts hurls his 28th consecutive complete game. The Phillies right-hander has finished every game he started since beating the Cardinals on August 28, 1952.

1961 Cardinals' first baseman Bill White hits three home runs and a double. The infielder's offensive output helps the Redbirds rout the Dodgers, 9-1.

1965 Dave Boswell and Jim Perry are the winning pitchers as the Twins sweep a doubleheader from Boston, 6-2 and 2-0, at Metropolitan Stadium to move into first place for good. Sam Mele's club will finish the season with a 102-60 (.630) record, finishing seven games ahead of the second-place Pale Hose.

1966 Three seasons after trading future Hall of Famer Lou Brock to the Cardinals for right-hander Ernie Broglio, the Cubs send the beleaguered pitcher to their Pacific Coast League farm team in Tacoma (WA), where he will never be called to the major leagues again. During his dismal tenure with Chicago, the former 20-game winner compiled a woeful 7-19 record and an ERA of 5.40.

1969 The Orioles break a three game losing streak when Dave McNally (12-0) wins his 14th consecutive game, defeating Detroit, 9-3. Tigers' outfielder Mickey Stanley plays his 220th consecutive errorless game.

1985 Garry Templeton is intentionally walked four times by the Pirates, tying a major league record set in 1962 by Yankee outfielder Roger Maris. The fourth free pass, issued in the 12th inning, leads to the Padres shortstop scoring a run, but Pittsburgh comes back with three tallies in the bottom of the frame to win the Three Rivers Stadium contest, 5-4.

1987 The A's first baseman Mark McGwire becomes the first rookie to hit 30 homers before the All-Star Game as Oakland defeats the Red Sox, 6-2. The Oakland infielder will finish the season with 49 round-trippers, establishing a new freshman mark previously shared by Wally Berger and Frank Robinson with 39.

1987 In an seven-player trade, the Giants swap southpaws Keith Comstock and Mark Davis, right-hander Mark Grant and third baseman Chris Brown to the Padres for infielder/outfielder Kevin Mitchell and left-handers Dave Dravecky and Craig Lefferts. Mitchell, obtained by San Diego in an off-season blockbuster trade with the Mets, will be the NL’s Most Valuable Player in 1989, helping the Giants to capture the circuit’s pennant.

1989 Barry Bonds' homer puts the Pirates outfielder and his dad, Bobby, first on the all-time father and son home run leader list with 408. Previously the Bells (Gus and Buddy) and the Berras (Yogi and Dale) were tied with 407.

1989 At the Oakland Coliseum, Mark McGwire hits his 100th career home run off of Royals' hurler Charlie Liebrandt. Big Mac's third inning three-run home run ties the score at 5-5, but the A's fall short, losing to Kansas City in extra innings, 12-9.

1991 In a unanimous vote, final approval is given by baseball owners for the Rockies and the Marlins to join the National League in 1993. The addition of the new franchises brings the Senior Circuit total to 14, with Colorado being placed in the West Division and Florida joining the NL East.

1993 At Cleveland, A's outfielder Rickey Henderson becomes the second player in major league history to open both games of a twin bill with a home run. In a 1913 doubleheader played in Washington, Red Sox outfielder and future Hall of Famer Harry Hooper was the first to accomplish the feat.

1997 Prior to their game with Atlanta at Olympic Stadium, the Expos retire Andre Dawson's uniform number 10. During his 11-year tenure with Montreal, the future Hall of Fame outfielder once set the single-season club records for home runs (32), RBIs (113), extra base hits (78), and sacrifice flies (18).

1998 Defeating the Orioles 1-0, the Yankees improve their record to 61-20, equaling the best 81-game start in major league history. The mark matches the record of the 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates and the 1907 Chicago Cubs.

1998 Yankee right-hander Roger Clemens strikes out Devil Rays' outfielder Randy Winn to record his 3000th career strikeout. The 'Rocket' is the 11th pitcher in major league history to reach the coveted milestone.

1998 Juan Gonzalez becomes the second player in major league history to go over the 100 RBI mark before the All-Star game. The Rangers designated hitter's major league-leading total of 101 RBIs is second only to Tiger slugger Hank Greenberg, who had 103 in 1935 and finished the season with 170.

2000 In a 12-9 comeback victory over Houston, Luis Gonzalez becomes the first Diamondback to hit for the cycle. The Arizona outfielder doubled in the first inning, singled in the third, tripled in the eighth and homered in the ninth to accomplish the feat.

2001 Pirates' skipper Lloyd McClendon is fined $1,000 for walking off the field with first base in the June 26 Brewers game. It's the first time a manager has been fined for 'stealing' a base.

2002 Baseball legend Ted Williams, considered by many the greatest hitter in the history of the game, dies of cardiac arrest at the age of 83. The first-ballot Hall of Famer, who was a lifetime .344 hitter, won the MVP award and Triple Crown twice, led the American League in batting for six seasons, and hit .406 in 1941 during his 19-year career with the Red Sox.

2004 As a gesture to honor local military personnel, the Twins give away a G.I. Joe action figure to the first 5,000 children attending the game against Kansas City. The team, in an effort to appease protesting peace groups, who see the promotion as glorifying war, asks Hasbro, the toy’s manufacturer, to remove the customary gun from G.I. Joe’s side, but the hand grenades remain visible.

2004 At Dodger Stadium, Diamondback third baseman Chad Tracy's ninth inning run-scoring single on an 0-2 changeup ends Eric Gagne's record streak of 84 consecutive saves. The new mark established by the Los Angeles closer is 30 more than the prior mark set by Tom Gordon for the Red Sox in 1999.

2005 Manny Ramirez hits his 20th career grand slam, passing Eddie Murray on the all-time list, for the second-most four-run homers in major league history. The Red Sox left fielder trails only Yankee legend Lou Gehrig, who holds the major league record with 23, a mark which will be eventually surpassed by Alex Rodriguez.

2007 At Dodger Stadium, Chipper Jones's two solo home runs are the difference in the Braves' 8-6 victory over Los Angeles. With his pair of round-trippers, the team's third baseman surpasses Dale Murphy for the Atlanta team record of 372 homers.

@BBTN: David Ortiz is starting at 1B at Fenway Park for the first time since 7/16/05.

Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" was No. 1 on the charts.
