Game Twenty: We Blinded Them With Dice K

At the corner of Hollywood and Dicey last night, (an homage to Never Not Funny, season one. Look it up.) Dice K threw 7 one hit innings at the Angles, powering a 5-0 shutout of the Halos. The Nation's eyes look to California once more today, hoping for a series sweep before heading back to more normal time zones.

And, in a statistical oddity from ESPN's Mark Simon, three Red Sox pitchers have now submitted consecutive starts of 7 innings or more with only one hit allowed during the Live Ball (post-1920) Era. Pedro Martinez, Howard Ehmke....and Dice K. I think that has got to be the only question on Earth for which that is the answer.
