    A fight in which a player actually lands a punch.

    speaking of balks, armando benitez's 12th inning meltdown against the mets from a few weeks ago may never happen again. or to be more specific, it's pretty damn rare to see back to back balks. were they on back to back pitch attempts? i think so but someone with a better memory could probably remind me.

    No, sir. They were not on consecutive pitches.

    How about a bases-loaded triple?

    I say a Cecil Fielder stolen base is pretty rare. He had two in 1,470 games. I'll never forget where I was the moment he stole his first base. Now how many players can you say that about?

    FOX threw this stat out, but I think it's a bit of a stretch:

    Red Sox and Cubs each won 1-0 at home today -- first time since 1963 that that's happened.

    Who even thinks to look that stuff up?

    The other much-stranger stat about today's Sox-Giants game is that there have been some 350 or so 1-0 games at Fenway since it opened. I don't know why, but that seems like such a high number of 1-0 games.

    The other cooler stat they showed is Papelbon's 3-year ERA is 1.58 -- 2nd-lowest for the first 3 years of a career since 1900.
