Stat Of The Day

Stat of the day, who will it be?  Your vote will hold the key. I t’s up to you.  Tell us who, will be star of the day.  -Community Auditions

Stat of the Day:  There’s always a first time for everything.  Not this.  Chase Utley‘s two-run home run in the top of the first inning gave the Fightin’ Phils a 2-0 lead.  It was the first time in forty-two years that a player hit a home run in the top of the first inning in Game One of a World Series.  That’s a long time.  That last time it happened was in 1966.  The last time it happened,  Baltimore’s Frank and Brooks Robinson hit back-to-back home runs off Don Drysdale at Dodger Stadium.

But this was a first.  Utley added two stolen bases to become the first player in Major-League history to hit a home run and steal two bases in a World Series game.  Yowza!

Peace out homies.  Six Two and Even!

Share the love baby!
