Yer Outta’ Here! Games End With Runners Hit On Basepath

Los Angeles — Angels and Dodgers games ended on Saturday with runners hit on base path. Giants and D-Backs played too, but the conspiracy sticks better if we correlate the city with the rare play. Convenient.

According to fans, base running miffs are higher in frequency this year.

The odds of two games ending in such fashion on the same day were probably far greater than anything spectators saw in the Kentucky Derby or the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. Baseball wins again.

For the record: MLB hasn’t seen a game ending base runner interference play in 5 years.

Final thought: maybe Major League Baseball should consider soaking… If you’re a scorekeeper type, write INT-R1 in your books coupled with a star*.

Any (tH)Oughts?
