Matching Starting Pitching Lines in Twins/Angels Game

As noted by Jayson Stark and others, yesterday’s Twins/Angels game saw a nearly identical set of starting pitcher lines:


Here are the details in a tidier form:

Name Tm IP H R ER BB SO HR Pit Str
Adalberto Mejia Minnesota 6.0 5 1 1 2 5 1 84 61%
Alex Meyer Los Angeles 6.0 5 1 1 2 4 1 84 61%

I don’t have the tools to determine if any pair of starting pitchers ever matched even more of their stat lines, but I still thought this was worth mentioning.

  1. If you want to get a bit wackier, according to the ESPN play-by-play log, the HR Meyer surrendered to Sano was to CF and went 405 feet. The HR Mejia surrendered to Calhoun went to CF and, yep, 405 feet!

    And if you want go get ridiculously absurd, the HR for Sano was #13. Calhoun wound up with a pair of HR, #6+#7 🙂
