Enjoy more than nine minutes of classic Vin Scully from June 30, 1959. Rich Lederer calls this clip "not only [Scully's] most descriptive call ever but one of the greatest in the history of the game".
Retrosheet now has box scores (though not play-by-play) for all major league games played from 1920-1930!
Baltimore's 11-10 win over the Red Sox last Thursday was the biggest comeback in Orioles history. The previous record was an eight-run deficit at Fenway Park on September 2, 1956. That score was also a Baltimore 11-10 victory. The Orioles' right fielder that day? Tito Francona!
The Red Sox have blown a 10-run lead twice:
June 4, 1989: Led the Blue Jays 10-0 after six, lost 13-11 in 12.
August 12, 2008: Led Rangers 10-0 in first, fell behind 15-14 in sixth, won 19-17. It was Charlie Zink's major league debut and still his only major league game.
