I made a reference in ATH this morning about there being a lot of good pitching performances, but I didn’t realize how many good ones. Try this on for size:
There were 9 games today in which a pitcher went 7+ IP & gave up no more than 3 hits. @EliasSports says it’s 1st day like that in history

Stark factoids tend to be hit or miss in terms of overall interestigness, but this one is definitely a hit.
I, for one, welcome our new Dead Ball Era overlords.
