Monday night's Angels vs Athletics game was the definition of pure insanity in a baseball game. The A's won in 19 innings, and didn't lead at any point during the game until Brandon Moss' two-run homer in the bottom of the 19th. In a game like this, there were some unique situations that came into play, and we can break them down using numbers. 5: the number of players that played center field in this game. Peter Bourjos, Mike Trout, Coco Crisp, Yoenis Cespedes, and Chris Young all got time manning center at the Coliseum on Monday night and Tuesday morning. 35: the total number of strikeouts by both teams. Cespedes and Moss each led the way with four for the A's, while Josh Hamilton led the Angels with three. 0: the number of hits by Josh Hamlton in his eight at bats. Only Hamilton, Chris Iannetta, and Derek Norris had at least five at bats without a hit during the game. 17: the number of points Hamilton's batting average dropped. 79: the total pitches thrown by Brett Anderson, who was scheduled to start the game for the A's before being scratched with a sprained ankle. He ended up leaving the game in the eighteenth inning due to that same ankle. 21: the total number of players used by the A's. The four stragglers that didn't play were all starting pitchers: Tommy Milone, Bartolo Colon, Jarrod Parker, and AJ Griffin. 19: the total number of players used by the Angels. The six players who didn't get into the game were Joe Blanton, Nick Maronde, Garrett Richards, Jason Vargas, CJ Wilson, and Hank Conger. 18 2/3: the innings caught by Angels catcher Chris Iannetta. 25: the total amount of runners left on base by both teams. 597: the total amoung of pitches thrown by both teams. Ironically, the A's threw 300 pitches, and the Angels threw 297. 4: number of players who left the game injured. Bourjos, Crisp, Young, and Anderson all left the game early due to injury. 0: double played induced by the A's in 19 innings. 42: pitches seen by Brendan Harris in nine at bats. 1989: total amount of feet that the five home runs hit traveled. 4:37: the time that the game ended on the east coast. Baseball: you've gotta love it. [follow]
