Not off to a good start in Cincinnati

Reds starting pitcher Kirk Saarloos allowed the first seven Pirates to reach base today before being pulled for Victor Santos in a game at Great America Ballpark.

That was the first time any pitcher had gotten off to such a bad start since Doug Waechter of Tampa Bay allowed the first seven Yankees to reach in a game on September 13, 2005 at Yankee Stadium. Waechter's struggles weren't helped when catcher Toby Hall interfered with Hideki Matsui to give him a free base.

On May 6, 2005, Paul Wilson of the Reds allowed the first eight Dodgers to reach before being pulled. Wilson also had a game where he allowed the first seven Astros to reach before being pulled on July 10, 2003.

The list of starting pitchers since 1957 who failed to retire the first seven or more batters before being pulled.

The Pirates would end up winning this one, 14-10.

The list includes the immortal Hilly Hathaway's last major league appearance.

Thx Bob. One game left to escape a sweep at the hands of the Buccos. Its tough to sit through nine innings of Reds baseball these days.
