  • Question re trivia questions

    I'm new here, so I'm not sure if this is the right place for this post. It's a trivia question in need of an answer.

    Has there ever been a baseball game (nine innings or otherwise) where at least one run was scored in every half inning?

    Bonus question: Have we ever had a modern ballplayer steal second, third, and home in the same game? How about consecutively?

    Thanks, everybody.

    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

      First, welcome aboard.

      There's never been a game where a run was scored in every half inning but there have been instances where one team has scored in each of their 9 half innings.

      5/5/1999 - Colorado Rockies vs Cubs
      9/13/1964 - Cardinals vs Cubs
      6/1/1923 - Giants vs Philadelphia
      5/20/1889 - Kansas City vs Brooklyn (AA)
      6/13/1883 - Columbus vs Pittsburgh (AA)

        Im surprised itsonly happened 3 times in the ML's. Would have thought thst the law of averages would throw up more than that when you consider just how many games have been played in MLB history.
        Hijacking question (sorry!): How many games have been played in ML history (AL+NL only)? I know this could be worked out by someone who is good at maths, but im not.

          Wow! Where did you get this information from?

            The list of players who have stolen 2nd, 3rd & home in a single game would be lengthy. I don't have a list handy, but a number of players, more than listed above, have done it in a single inning.

              There have been other cases where the home team has scored in the first 8 innings but didn't bat in the 9th.

              As far as the number of games played in ML history I came up with 170,610 games from 1901 to 2007.
