All 15 MLB home teams won their game last night

After the last game on the evening of August 11, 2015, in which the Seattle Mariners edged the Baltimore Orioles 6-5, Major League Baseball witnessed a first for its history books – all 15 home teams finished the day with a win.

Those teams are: Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, St. Louis, Arizona, Toronto, Tampa Bay, Miami, Cleveland, Mets, Cubs, Dodgers, White Sox, K.C., Minnesota

Reaching that achievement is the first time in nearly a century, where the same feat was accomplished by 12 home teams.

In a concerted effort, the home teams compiled a final scoreboard of 80-32 and added an ERA of 1.94 (4.90 – away), four shutouts and an average runs scored total of four.

Final Scores for Tuesday, August 11

3 Giants, 1 Astros
5 Dodgers, 0 Nationals
11 Padres, 6 Padres
6 Mariners, 5 Orioles
13 D’Backs, 1 Phillies
4 Cardinals, 3 Pirates
3 Twins, 2 Rangers
3 White Sox, 0 Angels
6 Royals, 1 Tigers
6 Cubs, 3 Brewers
5 Indians, 4 Yankees
4 Mets, 0 Rockies
5 Marlins, 4 Red Sox
2 Rays, 0 Braves
4 Blue Jays, 2 A’s

Also an on-going spectacle in this year’s season is the number of triples being cranked out.

This phenomenon has been cataloged the most by Lana Berry, a diehard Dodgers fan, who recently recorded her first podcast, The Lana Berry Show:
