    Paul DeJong of the Cardinals, in Sunday's game, became the first Cardinal player in modern MLB history (1900-2017) to get 7 extra base knocks in one series (3HR, 4 doubles).

    For all the Yadier Moilna collectors on GUU:

    In the recent All-Star Game, Yadi's round-tripper made him the oldest catcher to ever go yard in the Midsummer Classic.

    Re: Random crazy trivia fact

    With the American League's victory in last Tuesday's All Star Game, they have now won 17 of the past 21 games and the "all time series" is now tied at 43-43 (with 2 ties)...

    Ironically, both teams have scored the identical amount of runs during this series as well (I believe it's 361 runs each).

    In today's Cubs-Orioles game, newly acquired starting pitcher Jose Quintana became only the third pitcher since both Chicago teams were active in MLB to start a game for both Chicago teams in the same season. Before him, there was Bob Miller (1970) and Steve Renko (1977).

    The longest sellout streak in National League history ended Monday, when the Giants failed to sell out home game against Cleveland. Before that, they had a 530-game home sellout streak. The MLB (and AL) record is 794 by the Red Sox.

    In Friday night's win, Chris Sale of the Red Sox became the third pitcher in MLB history to reach 200 K in just 20 games. The others are Pedro Martinez (2000) and Nolan Ryan (1977).

    In Saturday's 9-7 Orioles win over Houston, Zach Britton, O's closer, made it into the American League record books with his 55th consecutive save without blowing one (from October 2015 to now). That breaks the previous AL mark of 54 set by Tom Gordon (1998-99 Red Sox).

    While the Cubs beat the White Sox today 7-2, Cubs starter John Lackey had a dubious item in his pitching line. He became the first Cub in 60 years to hit 4 batters in a game (3 in 1 inning).

    In Monday's 16-3 drubbing of the Diamondbacks, Jon Lester achieved not just one, but 2 milestones. On the mound, he notched his 2,000 K. At the plate, he belted his first MLB HR.
