1969: Wynn, Dierker Dominate Padres

September 9, 1969, Houston: Astros 9, Padres 2 (box score) First, the good news: Ivan Murrell hit his third home run of the season with two out in the ninth to avoid the shutout. The bad news? Pretty much everything else. Joe Niekro started for San Diego and coughed up six runs in 4+ innings. [...]

On the bright side, he’s been terrible against the Padres of late. Francis has allowed at least [...]

Missions, Storm Advance

1969: Corkins Corked in Big-League Debut at Houston

September 8, 1969, Houston: Astros 9, Padres 2 (box score) Mike Corkins made his first big-league start on a Monday in the Astrodome. It could have gone better. Corkins, whom the Padres selected from the Giants with the 31st pick in the expansion draft, didn’t make it out of the second inning. Heck, he barely [...]

Friday Links (7 Sep 07)

Thanks for all the kind words on Thursday. I try not to get too sentimental around here, but sometimes I just can’t help myself. That reminds me, as promised, I’ve got an article on the ’93 Fire Sale up at Hardball Times. Those of you who suffered through Tom Werner’s dismantling of the team might [...]

Decade of Ducksnorts

Yep, we’ve been here 10 years. That’s, like, 70 in Internet years. I was going to create a snazzy badge to commemorate the event, but what follows will be plenty self-indulgent on its own. Come, follow me… Old Incarnations I can’t find any versions earlier than 2000 (I probably have a few on a floppy [...]

1969: Sisk Finally Wins

September 6, 1969, San Diego: Padres 3, Dodgers 1 (box score) Clay Kirby and Don Sutton hooked up in the third of a four-game series at San Diego Stadium. Kirby, for reasons I cannot find, exited early, with Tommie Sisk taking over in the second. The game remained scoreless, with neither team threatening at all, [...]

Way too much talent for one person. Speaking [...]
