Statistics can show trends of how events can be expected to occur over time. They can also surprise you – especially in short spurts. The Atlanta Braves saw one of the latter on Wednesday night as one of their new relief pitchers shut down the Phillies in a special way.
It’s called the ‘Immaculate Inning’… a feat in which a pitcher toes the rubber to start an inning, throws 9 pitches, records 9 strikes, records 3 strikeouts, and then returns to the dugout.
One inning of perfection.
