Charlie Grimm League after 10 games

Post by jacktoast » Wed Aug 01, 2018 11:53 am

The Charlie Grimm 1950 baseball season is now ten games old and six of the eight teams are within three games of the leader, the Brooklyn Dodgers. Brooklyn has gone 8-2 over the first ten games.

The Dodgers have batted .282 as a team, 5th in the league. The strength of the team has been pitching and defense. The pitching staff has a collective 2.43 ERA, best in the league, has allowed the fewest hits, have allowed just 3 homeruns in 89 innings, have the fewest earned runs (24), the fewest runs (27) only 3 un-earned runs and have 2 complete game shutouts already.

The defensive fielding percentage is .992 (4th) with only 3 errors committed so far.

Chicago and Montreal are both 6-4, two games behind the Dodgers.

The Cubbies have hit very well (.305 as a team), but their pitching staff's ERA is a bulky 5.46 and they have committed 11 errors (.970 Fld. Pct.) which has given the opposition 12 unearned runs. Chicago has lost three straight games in which they made five errors and allowed six unearned runs.

Montreal, on the other hand, has won three straight. The team batting average is .293, the staff ERA is .986 and the defense has committed five errors allowing four unearned runs.

San Francisco is the only team in the league that has not allowed an unearned run. The 5-5 Giants, tied with Pittsburgh and San Diego, have won four straight.

The Dodgers opened a three game series at home against the St. louis Red Birds and pounded Early Miller for 11 hits and 11 runs (8 earned). The Dodgers scored eight runs in the third inning to open up a 8-0 lead in route to a 13-0 win.

The offensive out put surpassed the previous best of 11run on 13 hits against the Cubbies on July 12.

The beneficiary of the offensive explosion was pitcher Mike Mirabelli who gave the bullpen the day off with a five hit complete game shutout marred only by his six walks allowed. Mirabelli struck out 8 and is now 2-0.

Buck Thomas doubled triple and hit a three run homerun in the big third inning. Thomas batted twice in the inning reaching on an error and scoring on Red Joss' first homerun of the season. Bill Mashore had a run scoring single, Hugo Gonzalez a three run homerun and Thomas has a two run triple in his second plate appearance. Thomas homered in the 7th inning missing hitting for a cycle by the absence of a single.

The batting leaders for the league are;

Torey Abstein of Pittsburgh leads in batting average with a .472 average, George Parks of San Francisco has slugged 5 homeruns already, and Justin Vernon of San Diego has driven in 13 runs.
