Scratch Caleb, he's no longer on the pace. Made it to 20 innings and then gave up a dinger.

Adam Wainwright is falling off his pace of hoping to compile more wins than walks, with now 14 walks in 12 wins (two of those were intentional, not yet classifed as "defensive indifference"). Bartolo Colon (12/15) and Jordan Zimmerman (12/18) are also within reach. I think it's been done only five times in history, including the great Slim Sallee. Christy Mathewson did it twice.

Wainwright's current K/W ratio is 9.00, ranking fourth on the all-time (post 1900) list, led by Bret Saberhagen at 11.00 in a strike-shortened season.

Roy face won 18 games in a year in which he pitched only 93 innings, but he walked 25.

Looking ahead to the 2014 On A Pace thread, Paul Goldschmidt is on a pace to move into a four way tie for a MLB record in that year. There is currently a 3-way tie for most home runs by a player born in Delaware, 86 by Dave May, John Mabry and Randy Bush. Goldschmidt has 55 (tied for 6th with Chris Widger) and is on a pace to hit his 4-way-tyng 86th in 2014, in about August. Mabry never got another hit after the game in which he tied the record.

He is now on pace for 19, if he plays in every remaining game (doubtful).

Andrew Albers is on a pace to break Caleb Thielbar's team record and is on his way to Zieglar's 38 inning rookie record. He pitched 8 1/3 scoreless innings in his debut and a complete game 9 inning shutout in his second start totaling 17 1/3 total innings so far.

After the 5th inning, the Rangers and Pirates are on a pace to play a game in less than two h ours. Neither team has played a game yet this year in under 2:08. Five innings completed in 1:08. 109 pitches.

---

Not much chance now. 1:43 to the 7th inning stretch, and Rangers behind, portending a bottom of the ninth.
---

Now an injury pitching change with warmup, so the 8th doesnt start until 1:55.

There is a very good chance that two players could surpass a Babe Ruth record in this post season. Carlos Beltran has already tied and then broken Ruth's record of 15 post-season home runs, and David Ortiz needs one to tie, and two to break the Ruth record (and match Beltran), with possibly 18 games still remaining. Beltran hit 16 in just twice that many games (37), Ruth needed 41.

Interesting that the announcers last night did not know that Beltran had broken Ruth's record, until the guys in the truck told them several batters later.

Beltran passed Ruth, but Ruth has not been the post season home run leader for some time.

Ruth hit 15 WS home runs since WS games were the only post season ones available at his time. That was passed by Mickey Mantle who hit 18.

Since the post season was expanded:
Manny Ramirez - 29
Bernie Williams - 22
Derek Jeter - 20
Reggie Jackson - 18
Mickey Mantle - 18
Jim Thome - 17
Carlos Beltran -17
Babe Ruth - 15
David Justice - 14
Chipper Jones - 13
Jim Edmonds - 13
Albert Pujols - 13
Alex Rodriguez - 13, Jayson Werth -13
