Rendon just hit a Grand Slam
Trying to catch the Braves Anthony just hit a slam to give Washington a 6-2 lead. He now has 23 homers and 80 RBI. He also got a curtain call.

Some nice ESPN graphics, as well-- 5th in the majors in OPS, and #1 among all MLB infielders.

RE: Rendon just hit a Grand Slam
He hit #26 today - that's a new career high for him. He's looking pretty good too to set career bests in BA, RBI, slugging, OPS, etc.

Pay the man!

Also Duffey got two wins yesterday for the Twins. They awarded him a win on Saturday for Friday's game where he struck out the only batter he faced, overruling an earlier decision. Then on Sat he got two batters out with the bases loaded in the 5th for the win. (BTW I saw both games in person..not pleasant temps. Not going to today's 3pm game!)

Ant with his 27th bomb this afternoon, and he's now up to 97 RBIs-- both career highs, with 6 weeks to go in the regular season. He's hitting .318/.397/.605.

When in baseball history was the last time a pitcher ‘received’ two wins in the same day?

Pretty rare feat I’d say. Especially for the modern era.

Pretty rare feat I’d say. Especially for the modern era.

Here's a link to an interesting article about pitchers who started both games of a doubleheader, quite of few of whom got two wins in that single day: https://prestonjg.wordpress.com/2009/09/...r-leagues/

Among the highlights of that article:

The most recent was Wilbur Wood, who on May 28, 1973, pitched the final five innings and earned the win of a suspended extra-inning game and then -- after just a 15-minute gap, so he wouldn't cool-down -- pitched a 4-hit shutout in that Momorial Day's regularly scheduled game.

The last pitcher to win two 9-inning games in a single day was Emil "Dutch" Levsen, who on Aug. 28, 1926, threw two 4-hitters in games that lasted only 1:29 and 1:40, respectively.

"The year before Levsen’s feat, 1925, is the first year in which we don’t have record of a pitcher starting both games of a doubleheader since 1911, which in turn was the first such season since 1902."

It also includes this link to the Baseball Almanac list of the 45 times a pitcher earned two complete-game wins in the same day: https://www.baseball-almanac.com/feats/feats24.shtml

Baseball Almanac Wrote:Joe McGinnity has accomplished this more times than any other pitcher, AND he did it all three times during the same season and the same month. (ETA: August 1903)

On July 12, 1879, Pud Galvin became the first to accomplish this feat with an extra inning game and his combined twenty-one innings are the most ever during a doubleheader win.
