    Re: 5/27/12 Rockies at Reds

    The new record for combined HR in a homestand got me thinking about absurdly trivial trivia, and how today's game might be worth a footnote or two.

    Namely, the 5 hits given up, all of them being home runs. Using baseball-reference's play index:

    * Today was only the 4th time in history that a team gave up 5 or more home runs in a game and NO OTHER HITS. Oddly, the most recent incident of this was just a couple weeks ago (Texas did it against Baltimore on May 10, 2012; Texas also did it on 6/24/89 against Cleveland, and Detroit did it against the Yankees on 6/16/2004).

    * Of these 4 incidents, today's game is the first time a team has WON a game while giving up 5+ HR and no other hits.

    * Mat Latos becomes the 6th pitcher in MLB history to give up 5 or more HR and no other hits. Colby Lewis (TEX) was the previous most recent guy to do it. Also: Ted Lilly, Charlie Hough, Steve Stone, and Denny McLain.

    * Mat Latos becomes the FIRST AND ONLY ONLY pitcher in MLB history to give up 5 or more HR and NO OTHER BASERUNNERS. No walks, HBP, errors, etc. Five hits, all home runs, but never had to work out of the stretch once. Wacky.

    * And Mat Latos becomes the first and only starting pitcher in MLB to do the 5+ HR and no other hits and still get the WIN. Delicious.

    Thus ends my addition to useless knowledge....

    Imagine if Arroyo was starting today

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    If Arroyo did what Latos did today, I'd guess there would be threads calling for a DFA.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    I love the way Dusty is using this bullpen (high leverage/closer situation).

    Figured I'd give him some kudos, since I've been one of his many critics over the years.
