How about infinity plus one? :-D


This is worse because for some twisted reason, they left the poor sucker in there.

No geeky stats guy who can confirm if this is a record or not?

It was all over ESPN. Apparently, it happened in the late 1800's also

Yeah.

Royals starter Luke Hudson (5-4) was abysmal. He allowed the first 10 batters to reach base and surrendered 11 runs on eight hits in 1/3 inning. No pitcher has allowed 11 runs in the first inning since 1897, when Brooklyn scored 12 against Boston's Kid Nichols (All Headline News)


It doesn't say how many outs Kid Nichols got, but if it was more than one, it is a record as far as I know.

Funny thing is Kid Nichols is an easy HoFer and one of the greatest (and most underrated) pitchers of all time.

:-b


That kind of means he sucks at sucking though... so taking out the double negative, he's good :-o
