I am happy for them.
Who cares?

Upon further review, Zach Grotz was covering 1st base on the game ending DP, so the correct scoring would be 9-1. Not something you see everyday!

I take it you are not a baseball fan, Holy Roller?

Here's nice recognition for one of the team co-captains from the Daily Journal

Hard-core baseball people believe statistics can be manipulated in so many ways as to render them virtually useless in assessing a player. What’s the old saying: There are lies, damn lies and statistics?

Sometimes, however, stats give an indication of just how dominating a baseball player is. Take the case of recent Burlingame graduate, pitcher Forrest Armanino, the 2010 Daily Journal Baseball Player of the Year. Armanino made 14 appearances, including 12 starts and went 11-0. He had an earned run average of 1.12. In 68 innings pitched, he allowed only 38 hits, struck out 80 while walking 38, a 2-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio that would make any pitcher envious. He threw three complete games, two shutouts and threw a one-hitter against Aragon. And perhaps his most impressive stat: Allowed only five extra-base hits — one homer, one triple and five doubles.
