One of the things that I love about baseball is that you see something new everyday and last night was no exception.
For the first time in MLB history, every game was won by the home team; fifteen games in all.
These included the 9th consecutive win for the Toronto Blue Jays to bring them within a half game of the New York Yankees in the AL East (who lost in 16 innings to the Cleveland Indians). There were also extra-inning triumphs by the Miami Marlins and the Seattle Mariners, shutout victories by the Tampa Bay Rays, New York Mets, Chicago White Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers while the San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks scored in double digits. The other teams to enjoy home field advantage last night were the Chicago Cubs, Kansas City Royals, Minnesota Twins, St. Louis Cardinals, and the San Francisco Giants.
We might never see this again. Or we could see it happen again tonight. That is the beauty of baseball.
