Linescore Of The Day

Yesterday in Atlanta:
Marlins - 001 000 020 4 - 7 9 3
Braves - 010 000 200 5 - 8 10 0
According to Elias, it was the first time in franchise history (since 1876!) that the Braves had won a game in which they trailed by four or more runs during extra innings. Since 1981, there have been only two other games in which the winning team rebounded from a deficit of at least four runs in the 10th inning or later.

April 21, 1991
Cubs - 000 003 040 05 - 12 13 0
Pirates - 000 020 041 06 - 13 13 1
September 18, 2004
Tigers - 002 101 000 400 - 8 10 0
White Sox - 100 030 000 401 - 9 12 1

And how 'bout that Dodgers comeback last night. 4 home runs in a row! And then Nomah...wow. Highlights are on their website. GO PAPI. 50.....

Going into that April series, the Cubs were ahead of the Bucs. That incredible comeback (Heathcliff Slocumb, whose real name is just Heath, I just found out, started the bottom of the eleventh for the Cubs) to cap off a 3-out-of-4 series win put Pittsburgh atop the NL East. They'd go on to win 11 of their next 15 and win the NL East going away.

The Cubs would lose 5 of their next 7, and never recover, finishing 20 games behind the Pirates that year.

This is all from memory... I swear.

Serious? He calls himself Heathcliff because his grandmother was a big fan of Wuthering Heights?

Don't tell me his father's name was Ffilchtaeh?

Or Heathcliff Huxtable.

From baseball-almanac.com:

Birth Name: Heath Slocumb
Nickname: Heathcliff

That really is weird. To have it backwards like that.
