111 122 13x

I can't believe I missed this, but Florida scored in every inning against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Regular season games in which that has happened -- there are very few -- are sort of an obsession with me. Florida was the home team, so they didn't have to hit in the ninth.
Red Sox 010 000 000 - 1 3 3
Marlins 111 122 13x - 12 18 0
It has happened 12 times in major league history, but only three times has the visiting team scored in all nine innings (bolded below).

The list:
August 15, 1889: Cleveland 19, Boston 8
June 22, 1894: Washington 26, Boston 12
July 12, 1894: Cleveland 20, Philadelphia 10
June 29, 1897: Chicago 36, Louisville 7
September 16, 1903: Red Sox 14, Cleveland 7
June 1, 1923: Giants 22, Phillies 8
July 7, 1923: Cleveland 27, Red Sox 3 (Game 1)
July 26, 1939: Yankees 14, Browns 1
May 11, 1949: White Sox 12, Red Sox 8
September 13, 1964: Cardinals 15, Cubs 2
September 14, 1998: Royals 16, A's 6
May 5, 1999: Rockies 13, Cubs 6
Re the July 7, 1923 game, David Smith wonders if there was bad blood between the teams because Cleveland stole several bases when they were up 22-3.

Nine times, eh? That makes it even more rare than a perfect game, correct? That's very interesting. I would not have guessed that.

Just found a list of the games online.

Visiting team scoring in all nine innings? Three times.

There have been 17 perfect games.

Your always-hoped-for line score, and you missed it! We'll keep hoping...

Not on topic, but just to raise the issue...Johnny Damon's left shoulder is hurting again. The Boss will blame the WBC rather than his own baseball judgement, but this is why the Sox were willing to let Idiot Numero Uno go. Why would anyone who watched JD play in August and September be surprised at this? As of this AM, which centerfielder do you think the Yankees would rather have under contract for 5 years...Johnny Damon or Cocoa Crisp?
