Each day, we'll broadcast three games—in descending order of predictability—and Saturday night ends with the slightest Edge we've ever seen.

Lastly, our pick of the week delivered, as the :leones: put together a hell of a game behind ace pitcher Luis Maldonado.

Mind you, the :ingenieros: didn't lie down on the job, either. You want to know how well they did? Watch:

For their sixth game, the :ingenieros: troop off to Utuado, home of the :montaneses:, to face 37-year-old righty Omar Rodarte and his wicked array of offspeed pitches.

Something very important happens. Check out what it is:

A few days ago, the :ingenieros: couldn't muster a single run against Domingo Mejía, the journeyman starter for the :fundadores:.

They're out for blood. We don't want to spoil the result, but we'll tell you this much: they avoid a shutout.

OUR PICK THIS WEEK:
Game #7 ( vs. :leones: )

While Zamora hopes to rebound from his 4 BB start against the :capitanes:, the Leones are sending Luis Maldonado to the mound.

He's got a 185-107 record, 143 career ERA+, and he's currently the only pitcher to have thrown a perfecto.

Want something else to be thankful for? There's :lnp: baseball this Friday.

After a promising Opening Day win, the :ingenieros: have lost three straight for a 1-3 record.

They get to face the :fundadores:, who shut them out two days ago, the :montaneses:, and the :leones:, whose pitcher Luis Maldonado has a very unique achievement:

So far, he's the only pitcher to have thrown a perfect game.

See you Friday!

In the Liga Nacional Puertorriqueña of the 19th century, the annual champion was given a trophy made from the cannons used to defend Maunabo from the Spanish navy. twitter.com/cut4/status/133128

Every :ingenieros: fan hates José Rivera more than anyone they know.

Not only does he play for the hated :capitanes:, he's responsible for two of the most crushing losses La Máquina has ever suffered. Only three days apart, too.

He's on the mound tonight, looking to notch his fifth shutout against La Máquina—who would like nothing better than to shove his navy-and-red cap down his throat.

Come see what they manage against him:

And this brings us full circle, because—as some of you may surmise—the pitcher responsible for both those shutouts (as well as two others) is, in fact, José Rivera.

He's taking the mound against the Ingenieros in Game 4. Will he make it five? Come watch:

One year before, on April 2nd, 1883, the Ingenieros beat the Capitanes 9-8.

On Opening Day, and at home, no less. It was the only other time, in all the data we have, that they weren't outscored by the Capitanes.

The next day, they lost 16-0.

Three days later, they lost 6-0.

Show thread

On April 23rd, 1884, the Ingenieros won to split a series against Mayagüez.

They tied in scoring terms: both teams had 8 runs on the season against each other.

On May 2nd, they lost 6-4.

On June 6th, they won 10-5 and took the scoring lead.

On June 7th, they lost 12-4.

Show thread

Somehow, it's actually even worse than it looks.

During the calculations for that table and chart in the last post, our analysts had to do the exact same thing twice: after finding the scores for two successive games, add 8 runs to Rincón's total . . . and 30 to Mayagüez's.
