Saturday Feats

Thanks to Doug Kern's Twitter:

Xander Bogaerts: Also had 4 hits but 0 runs scored as cleanup batter on Sep 9 2018 vs HOU (W 6-5). Only other [Red Sox] cleanup hitter to do it twice at Fenway is Carl Yastrzemski.

Jackie Bradley: First Brewers leadoff batter with 3 hits including a triple in a home game since Jonathan Villar vs CHC, Sep 6 2016 (W 12-5).

Jacob deGrom: First pitcher since 1912 (when earned runs became official in NL) to strike out 14+, allow 0 *earned* runs, but yet still give up a homer. [The inning went: E4, K, 3B*, SAC9*, HR*, K]
Also struck out 14+ and allowed 0 earned runs at Miami on Apr 3 2019 (W 6-4). Only other pitcher in Mets history to do it twice on the road is Tom Seaver (1970 at PHI, 1971 at SD).
Second pitcher in Mets history with 14+ strikeouts in back-to-back games (any # IP). Dwight Gooden, Sep 12 & 17 1984.

Jordan Montgomery: First Yankees starter to give up multiple hits in a game and have them ALL be home runs since Mike Mussina at TOR, Apr 9 2002 (W 5-2).
First to do this and lose since Wade Blasingame gave up 3 homers to the first 4 batters of the game, Jun 27 1972 at DET.

Yu Darvish: First pitcher in Padres history to throw 7+ innings, allow 1 hit, strike out 9+, and take a loss.

Casey Mize: First Tigers pitcher to allow 3 homers and hit 2 batters in a game since Frank Tanana at CAL, Jun 24 1990 (L 2-10).

Huascar Ynoa: First [Atlanta] pitcher to allow 3 homers and throw 2 wild pitches in the same game since Kevin Millwood vs MTL, Aug 28 2001 (L 0-7).

Casey Mize/Huascar Ynoa: First time in modern era that two pitchers have done this on the same day. DET Bob Harris & PHI Hugh Mulcahy did it on consecutive days in May 1939.

[This is confusing because Mize and Ynoa did not do the same thing, but Mize and Mulcahy did.]
On May 8, 1939, Harris allowed 3 home runs and threw 2 wild pitches.
On May 9, 1939, Mulcahy allowed 3 home runs and threw 2 wild pitches.]

Astros: First game where they converted 10+ hits into 1 run and still won since Apr 24 1991 vs CIN (Ken Oberkfell walkoff [13th inning]).

Rockies: Second time in team history that they had a homer, a triple, and a double, but no singles, in a game. Other was Apr 19 2013 vs ARI (W 3-1).

Ryan M. Spaeder reported this:

Yadier Molina is the first player in #StLCards franchise history to be involved in back-to-back homers twice in a single game.
In the third inning, Molina and Paul DeJong hit back-to-back home runs.
In the fourth inning, Nolan Arenado and Molina hit back-to-back home runs.
