View Full Version : We managed to not jinx it: Jimenez throws a no-no. (And other 4/17 MLB happenings)

Dexter Fowler made a DeWayne Wise-esque catch, diving all-out to his right in deep right center in the 7th inning with the Rockies up 4-0 on the Braves.

The catch was in a game that nothing is, or even could be, going on of interest.

Ubaldo Jiminez has walked 6 batters through 7 innings. But there's nothing else of interest in the game.

In case you were wondering:

Home team: Brooklyn Dodgers
Visitors: Boston Braves

Innings: 26

The game was called due to darkness, as they didn't have lights way back then, resulting in a 1 - 1 tie and going down in history as the longest game by innings.

If anything hurt Harang it was keeping him on his regular schedule instead of giving him a few extra days to recover. Starters have relieved many times in major league history, and as long as they are given extra rest, they've been fine most of the time.
