(SPOILER) Yankees set record after six innings of 2000 A.L.C.S. Game 2

The 2000 New York Yankees appear to have set a futility record in best-of-7
MLB playoff
series, having (through six full innings) failed to score in *15* straight
innings from
the start of their series (and counting). They appear to have broken the
previous record of 13
scoreless innings from the start of a best-of-7 MLB playoff series, set by
the
Detroit Tigers in the 1945 World Series, tied by the Philadelphia Phillies
in the
1950 World Series, and tied again by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1959
World Series.

Try again. In 1966 the Dodgers scored a run in the 3rd inning of Game 1 of
the World Series, then didnt score again. That's some 30+ consecutive
scoreless innings.

What part of "from the start of a best-of-7 MLB playoff series" didn't you

I know at least the Tigers went on to win the series.

Indeed, the Dodgers' 33-inning scoreless streak in the 1966 World Series
dwarfs the Yankees' 16-inning streak from yesterday, except that the latter
streak was from the start of the series. Those '66 Dodgers set a record for
fewest
runs in a best-of-7 series with only two, and (if we worked our abacus
correctly)
is one of only three teams to play an entire best-of-7 MLB series without
having
led even once.

To the Yankees' credit, they ended their 16-inning scoreless streak with the
highest-
scoring eighth inning in best-of-7 MLB series history. Their seven-run
eighth appears
to have broken the record set by the Cubs in the 1908 World Series with six
runs in the
8th of Game 2 (tied in the 8th of 1979 World Series Game 4 by Baltimore,
and in the 8th of 1993 W.S. G4 by Toronto). The official accounts cite only
the Yankees'
21-inning scoreless streak (going back to the A.L.D.S.) as tying a team
record set in
1921 and 1922; it is likely that that information came from Yankees media
relations and
not from MLB.

No, but some people who work during the day tape games to watch later at
night.  When I subscribed to the Cardinals listserv, we had an informal
agreement about using spoiler warnings when posting about day games that
were in progress or had just ended.

His hair looked red on the Olympics because of the lighting or whatever.
He had joked during the Olympics about it.  Apparently he had gotten
some letters asking if he had died his hair red.

As did the Dodgers, because they played a team from the same city :-)
