They said on ESPN that Mark Buehrle was the first pitcher in 100 years to give up 7 runs in the first inning and still get the win. Congrats Mark!

Not much into stats. Of the 7 runs, was only one earned? I thought I herd ESPN say that as well.

Buehrle and Uribe with stupid errors. Should have been a scoreless inning.

It was actually almost 106 years - "St. Louis' Jack Powell was the last pitcher to survive a seven-run first and win, beating the Chicago Orphans 10-7 in the first game of a doubleheader on Sept. 29, 1900."

Oh man, this is pretty impressive, I mean, THE CUBS HAVE WON THE WORLD SERIES SINCE THIS LAST OCCURRED.

Hopefully this will be the "worst" outting by buehrle runs wise. Great recovery by mark tho. I have to admit tho, i feel the last guy who did this was prob more impressive, i mean, how many mgrs would leave a pitcher in after givin up 7 runs, esp when he has to bat too

Only a real ace can come out from that situation and just make up his mind to put up a bunch of zeros on the board, and then do it.

Congrats Mark.

That was impressive. Mark could have easily called it a day. Thankfully, he's a gamer. A tip of the cap to the bats too - nicely done. It was especially nice to see Uribe with a bunch of hits

This is one of those dubious records I am sure he would have rather not been involved with. Yeah the first pitcher in over 100 years to get a W after giving up 7 runs in the first inning, but I am sure hes saying I gave up 7 runs in the first inning. It is a great testament to MB though, that he was able to shut the Twins down for the next 5 innings when a majority of pitchers would have folded it up and been gone an inning or two later.

Not only did the errors hurt, but he was tipping his pitches.

He found a way to correct it and get through the rest of the game.

Buehrle's awesome.

It says a lot about him that he was able to go 6 after that nightmare of a 1st inning. I doubt there are many active pitchers that could have done so.

And the team it happened to was the cubs. I think they were the Orphans, right?

They were discussing it on the show before the radio pre-game. Singleton came on and confirmed it.

EXACTLY! That is a point that is over looked in a game as crazy as that one was.

The 2005 White Sox would have more than likely lost that game. Going down 7-3 was essentially a death sentence for last years team. This year, it's just a small bump in the road.

This team is good, SCARY GOOD.
