Video: Santiago Casilla gets the save with an “immaculate inning”

13 Comments

An immaculate inning is when a pitcher gets all three outs in an inning via strikeout on nine pitches, all strikes. Giants closer Casilla accomplished the feat to wrap up Sunday afternoon’s 9-8 victory over the Reds.

Immaculate innings only happen a handful of times every season. Mike Fiers is the only other pitcher to have done it so far this year. In 2014, Brad Boxberger, Cole Hamels, Justin Masterson, Garrett Richards, Rex Brothers, and Brandon McCarthy performed the task.

Casilla struck out Marlon Byrd, Brandon Phillips, and Jay Bruce. Check it out here:

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
