Runs(5) + Hits(6) = 56.

It was destiny.

I know I am stretching.:tongue:

How about that Eric Cooper called both of his no hitters. Also, guess what Cooper's umpire number is?

You guessed right...


edit: He apparently also called Hideo Nomo's no hitter in 2001.

Really? I always see him leave in his Ford F-650. It's kinda hard to miss.

A history (http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/2006) of amazing facts about Burls and no-nos. Interesting read.

or how about the only two people to throw 2 no hitters are both from the St. Louis area, did anyone hear that reporter tell MB that? the other reporters were laughing at him.

Of the 18 perfect games, Buehrle's came against the team with the best offense.

It was fitting that Wise's catch came up against Billy Pierce.

By what metric?

Most runs scored at the time ... per Buster Olney. Didn't say if it was average runs per game or team ranking.

Olney cited TB as being 3rd in the AL in runs scored.

This sounds like a LOST message board after a great episode.

And the Score was talking about where they (TB) ranked offensively -- it was 2nd, 3rd or 4th in almost every significant category.

It was fitting that Wise's catch came up against Billy Pierce. I wondered if I was the only one to notice that. I thought of June 27, 1958 and Billy's near miss.

Hello all:
Some stats/facts I unearthed today:

-Eric Cooper (home plate ump) and MB both wear #56


-Both the no hitter and PG were 2 hours and 3 minutes


-DeWayne Wise was a part of the last perfect game in MLB; he played for Atlanta when they lost to Randy Johnson a few years ago.


-DeWayne Wise caught the ball today in the 9th inning right next to Billy Pierce's image on the outfield wall; Billy Pierce had a no-hitter


-There was a grand slam in both no-hitters (2007 = Dye, 2009 = Fields).


-MB faced the minimum in both games. In the 2007 no hitter he walked Sammy Sosa and then picked him off @ first. Of all guys with > 1 no hitter, he is the first to face the minimum in all (or both in this case) games.



Enjoy. Feel free to post if you find some more!

Great Stats! Buehrle's perfect game is the only one perfect game in MLB history to include a grand slam. Also I heard today that Buehrle's actual time spent "on the mound" was only 32 minutes.

Another one:

-Sandy Koufax & Cy Young……… only other 2 pitchers to throw > 1 no-hitter with one of them being a perfect game.

The Final line for the Sox was 5-6-0, the first two being Buehrle's Jersey #, as you all know.
The home plate umpire Eric Cooper was also behind the dish for Buehrle's no-hitter and wears uniform no. 56.
The game lasted two hours and three minutes, the same as the 2007 no-no.
Ramon Castro had never previously caught Buehrle.
