I thought I had started a thread about Friday the 13th in baseball in a previous year, but I couldn't find one. However, here's an article that was posted on MLB.com last night about some strange goings-on in yesterday's games.


Of course
since MLB.com is East Coast-driven, the West Coast games were left out in the cold again (given this story was filed long before the Dodgers-Padres game even ended, with a wild one itself). Booooo!!!

No kidding. Aaron's 13 consecutive Ks would be right up there as just right for Friday the 13th. Not just right to me though. Lol

Another bump up! Today was the second Friday the 13th of the 2012 season, and it started the "second half" for most teams.

Well, the Dodgers lost on Friday the 13th this year Sad which means the Jints won Mad --talk about some scheduling! I'm sure on paper, back before the season started, this late season match-up between the two bitter rivals looked like it would be a dogfight for the division.

Vin provided some interesting tidbits about Friday the 13th during last night's broadcast. I'll get back to this later.

They disappeared!

Sad

Good stuff here! I'm glad the Dodgers won. I always enjoy reading about players' superstitions. I know we had a thread about them.

Yes, I'll find it. And how about the fact that the Bush call-up was on Friday the 13th? And he fared pretty well?

Lol. I can see Kershaw with that Subway sandwich from the commercial. Smile

Well, how did we end up with two Friday the 13ths in the same season? I suppose it's happened before, but it seems like I just bumped this thread (three months ago, that is!).

I think it happens whenever there is a Friday the 13th in April, because the calendar for July is the same. Only difference is July has 31 days. The rest of the month is on the same schedule. So probably in another 6 years or so.

Friday the 13th for my Padres went just as expected, it was another loss. Sad

Unless I missed one earlier in the season, this is the first Friday the 13th in baseball this year. Will Cathy's Padres lose again? Will some unlucky turn of events affect an intense wild card race? What can we expect?

Well, the Dodgers won. It's Saturday the 14th I'm upset about! Evil or Very Mad

Cathy hasn't posted her Padres lost again. It's strange, there was a full moon and a Friday the 13th, and I didn't hear much out of the ordinary.

Lol - yes, my guys losing is not out of the ordinary!

The Rockies beat them in Coors Field, 10-8. Sad Sometimes it feels like there were many more Friday the 13ths, this season.

Two years later (since the last post here):

Another Friday the 13th, this time in August, yielded good and bad results in baseball depending on who your team is. For the Dodgers, it was good, as they beat the Mets in extra innings (though not 13 of them)! Smile

Well, they were bad results for us. My Padres lost that night. Sad I had not checked back, though, to see what other "unlucky" things happened around baseball last Friday.

Well, it's time for another edition of Friday the 13th in baseball!

The day already started out jinxed when the Dodgers announced that CK is being placed on the IL. But more about that in the Ravin' thread.

That is unfortunate.

I think our misfortunes were put off by a day, and since tomorrow is a full moon that was probably why the game today went so poorly. Last night, on the other hand, went very nicely.
