If you are a hitter, you have that dream of being the guy to hit the game-winning HR in the bottom of the 9th in Game 7. If you are a pitcher, you have that dream of doing what Pat Misch just did.
The game wasn’t nearly as close as the final 11-0 score would indicate, as Misch dominated Game 7 of the Chinese Professional Baseball League championship series. A 1-0 score would have felt like a blowout the way he was throwing. I’ve got no idea how to say “Maddux game” in Mandarin or Cantonese or whatever language they are speaking…but I know it’s one of those.
Take a look for yourself. Here’s all 27 outs, and the lone walk that kept it from being a perfect game. You’ll notice the infielders are quite busy. The outfielders, not so much.
