Three unlikely Mariners prospects twirl no-hitter for the Bakersfield Blaze

Bakersfield, Calif. — Daniel Torres is covered in shaving cream. There’s so much of it that the Bakersfield Blaze catcher has done up his hair in a white-tinted mohawk, with a glob on his shoulder and a shaving cream beard covering most of his face. He’s drenched.

Mariners' Dae-Ho Lee drills TV camera lens with line drive

Television cameras are expensive, so getting a baseball lined at one can be costly for the owner of the equipment. Dae-Ho Lee of the Seattle Mariners nearly obliterated the lens of one during Thursday's game as he lined a ball directly at the camera. It made for a cool yet terrifying shot and an extremely loud noise, which surely frightened the guy operating it. Fortunately, it...

Those two acts inform the predictive significance of run differentials and Pythagorean record and represent the reason I enjoy perusing leaderboards to see which teams are currently the best at run generation and prevention.
