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!
