Kerplunk, and the batter gets his base. No one bruised more batters in 1970 then Montreal Expos SP Bill Stoneman. Stoneman hit 14 opposition hitters while going 7-15 with a 4.59 ERA in 30 starts for the Expos that season in real life. Interesting enough in real life he plunked 12 in the 1969 as well, but his control improved in 1971 only hitting 5 batters. In the SIM so far, he has hit 3 pitchers this season and is on pace for 11. But he also has a 8-3 record with a 3.05 ERA in 13 starts. In real life, Stoneman had a no hitter for the Montreal Expos in his 5th MLB start and the Expos 9th game in franchise history. Stoneman was selected by the Expos in the 1968 expansion draft. Stoneman was orginally drafted by the Cubs in 1966.

Boston Red Sox SP Ray Culp hit 11 opposition hitters in 1970 while finishing 17-14 with a 3.04 ERA in 33 starts in real life. Arguably, it was Culps best season in the majors, and his 2nd of back to back 17 win seasons in real life. In the SIM, he was 12-11 with a 3.34 ERA in 33 starts in 1969 and is 4-2 with a 3.65 ERA in 10 starts this year. Culp hit 20 batters in the SIM in 1969 while hitting just 2 so far this season. In his 1st season of MLB, he had a good start to his career with a 14-11 record and 8th in strikeouts, but he also led the league in walks. He was selected as an All Star in 1963, his rookie season as well the Sporting News named Culp their rookie of the year. He twice led the league in hit batsman, the NL in 1965 with 12 and in 1970 in real life with 11 in the AL.

Kansas City Royals Rookie SP Bob Johnson had them ducking in 1970 when he plunked 11 batters. Johnson himself had a relatively short career spanning from a cup of coffee with the Mets in 1969 until his last season in the majors in 1977, he did not play in the MLB in 1975 or 1976. His java in New York came with a World Series Ring and he had another in real life in 1971 with the Pirates. In the SIM he is 2-1 with a 2.72 ERA in 5 starts for the Royals. He has hit 2 batters so far so is on pace for so he is on pace for 7 HP. In April of 1969, Johnson was ranked the 12th MLB prospect.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Don Sutton, didn't really hit too many batters in his career, just 82 in 5282 innings or 1-2 every 100 innings. But 1970 was different when he walloped 10 men in just 260 innings. Now it is a possibility that because he gave up the most HRs ever in his career in 1970 (38) that he pitched MAD. Nevertheless Sutton had them a little uneasy in the batters box in 1970. So far in the SIM, he hasn't bruised up anybody, but he has only given up 4 round trippers so far and is 6-1 with a 1.60 ERA which is much better then his real life stats that season.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Dock Ellis had the batters "knee's knocking" during the 1970 MLB campaign. Ellis clobbered 10 various National League hitters in 1970 while going 13-10 with a 3.21 ERA in 30 starts is real life. Like Sutton, Ellis was not know for erratically hitting batters, he hit just 44 in 2127 innings so about a pair every 100 innings, but in 1970 it was 5 every 100 innings. In the SIM, Ellis is 3-6 with a 3.50 ERA in 11 starts, he has smoked just one National leaguer so far. Maybe he has not had the LSD kick in yet so far. (He admitted to pitching under in the influence of LSD and completing a No Hitter in the process in 1970) The troubles for Ellis are just beginning.... stay tuned....

Facts....... and more Facts.

The 1970 MLB June Amateur Draft... every season there are booms and busts, put quick frequently there are many surprises come draft time. In 1970 the 1st pick overall was by the San Diego Padres in C Mike Ivie. Ivie made his debut with the Padres in September 1971. Ivie did play in the MLB from his debut until his final game in May 1983 with the Detroit Tigers. Ivie was only one of five players to hit 2 "Pinch Hit Grand Slam HRs" in the same season. Although Ivie was drafted as a catcher, he started his career with the Padres at 1B. It was an accident with an hunting knife in the 1979 off season forced Ivie to become more of a bench player as he sliced part of his fifth finger on his hand.

The second overall pick in the MLB draft was the Cleveland Indians selecting RHP Steve Dunning. Dunning started 84 games and pitched in 136 games over 7 years with the Indians, Rangers, Angels, Expos and eventually the Athletics. Dunning went straight from the draft to making his debut with the Indians on June 14th, 1970. On May 11th, 1971, Dunning hit a Grand Slam HR off of Athletics pitcher Diego Segui, a feat that wasn't accomplished again by an American League pitcher until 2006.

Over 10 years he got into 687 games hitting .230 with 57 HRs and 230 RBIs. Foote's expectations as a catcher for Montreal were so high that the Expos attempted to convert Gary Carter to RF. By 1976, Carter replaced Foote at catcher and Foote was soon traded.

The Milwaukee Brewers made the 4th pick and grabbed C Darrell Porter. Porter made his debut with the Brewers in 1971 when he appeared in 22 games, he became a regular with the Brewers in 1973. Over 17 years he hit .247 with 188 HRs and 826 RBIs in 1782 games. Porter was a 4-time All Star, won a World Series with the Cardinals in 1982 and was the World Series MVP.

Pepitone made an infamous error in the 1963 World Series when he misplayed or lost the ball while playing 1B on a ground ball putout setting up the batter safe at 3rd and would eventually score the Series winning run.

Facts....... and more Facts.

The 1970 season was more then just the Baltimore Orioles beating the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series or Pete Rose running C Ray Fosse in the 1970 All Star game in extra innings to secure a National League win.

Curt Flood challenged the leagues reserve clause and refused to report to the Philadelphia Phillies, the Milwaukee Brewers replaced the Seattle Pilots in a move that never got finalized until nearly opening day and the Sporting News announces before the season starts that they have named Willie Mays as the player of the decade and he goes and gets his 3000th career hit in July.

Some of the other interesting happenings in 1970.....

Atlanta Braves LF Rico Carty starts the season with a 31 game hitting streak that ends on May 15th. In 113 at bats he has 51 hits (.451) with 8 HRs and 30 RBIs while striking out just 10 times.

Five Major league hitters hit for the cycle in 1970, all five required the minimum needed hits of four. Dodgers Wes Parker, Twins Rod Carew, Indians Tony Horton, Mets Tommie Agee and Giants Jim Ray Hart completed the feat all going 4 for 5.

Eight players hit 3 HRs in a game during the season. Reds Johnny Bench, Orioles Paul Blair, Braves Rico Carty, Braves Orlando Cepeda, Indians Tony Horton, Tigers Willie Horton, Braves Mike Lum and Yankees Bobby Murcer all went yard 3 times in a game.

Tigers SS Cesar Gutierrez was 7 for 7 with 4 doubles and an RBI in a 9-8 12 inning win over the Indians on June 21st. Tigers CF Mickey Stanley led off the 12th with a HR in the win.

Sixteen players hit 2 Triples in game in 1970, only Dodgers CF Willie Davis did it twice, both times at the cost of the St Louis Cardinals. On May 15th Davis was 3 for 5 in a 8-6 win over the Cardinals and on August 17th he was 3 for 5 in a 11-8 loss to Cardinals.

Senators Frank Howard and Astros Jim Wynn both were given the ultimate respect when each were intentionally walked 3 times in a game. On September 2nd, Howard was walked in the 1st with a runner on 2nd with 1 out. The Senators did not score in the 1st. Howard was walked to start the 3rd inning, he did not score in the inning. Howard was walked again intentionally to lead off the 5th, Howard later scored on a bases loaded wild pitch. In total that day, the Indians walked 5 Senators intentionally and lost 4-1. On July 11th, Wynn's Astros needed 14 innings to beat the Giants 5-4 when received his 3 intentional free passes.

Six MLB hitters whiffed 5 times in a game. Cooling off fans with missed swings would make sense during the summer, but most of the these free swingers took place in the early part of the season. Cardinals Dick Allen, Phillies Larry Hisle, Senators Frank Howard, Athletics Rick Monday, Reds Pete Rose and Giants Steve Whitaker all came up swinging empty 5 times in 1970.

Giants SP Gaylord Perry went 40 consecutive innings with out giving up a run from September 1st- September 23rd. Perry pitched 4 complete games while on that streak going 4-0 and dropping his seasonal ERA from 3.61 to 3.19. His streak ended in Los Angeles when he gave up 5 runs in 4 innings before getting the hook on September 23rd.

There were 4 NO NO's during the 1970 season. Pirates SP Doc Ellis walked 8 and struck out 6 2-0 win over the Padres on June 12th. Angels SP Clyde Wright performed the feat on a night that he was being honored by College baseball, on July 3rd the Angels beat the Athletics 4-0 while Wright walked 3 and struck out 1. On July 20th, Dodgers Bill Singer no hit the Phillies 5-0. Singer struck out 10 and his only blemish is that he plunked RF Oscar Gamble in the 1st and faced 28 batters.... that close to a perfect game. Athletics SP Vida Blue no hits the Twins on September 21st in a 6-0 win. Harmon Killebrew was the Twins only baserunner as he reached on a walk.

New York Mets SP Tom Seaver struck out 19 in a complete game win on April 22nd in a 2-1 win over the Padres. Seaver struck out the last 10 Padres in the game.

On August 12th, Cardinals SP Bob Gibson pitched a 14 inning complete game 5-4 win over the Padres. Gibson allowed 13 hits, walked 2 and struck out 13. For the Padres, pitcher Ron Willis gave up a bases loaded 1 out walk to give the home town Cardinals the win.

Houston Astros SP Don Wilson gave up 16 hits, but held the Expos to 3 runs in a 7-3 win at the Astrodome. Wilson's 16 hits were the most by any pitcher in the 1970 season during a game.

New York Yankees SP John Cumberland gave up 5 HRs over just 6 innings but the Yankees still cameback to beat the Indians 8-7 in 11 innings. Indians Tony Horton hit 2 of those HRs and he hit another against Fritz Peterson in a losing cause.

I just don't have my good stuff today category....... Phillies SP Steve Carlton got rocked for 10 earned runs over 4 innings on July 26th in a 12-5 loss to the Reds. Carlton gave up 9 hits, 1 walk, struck out 4 and gave up 3 long balls in the loss. Reds C Johnny Bench single handedly hit all 3 HRs against Carlton and added 7 RBI.

New York Yankees SP Mel Stottlemyre maybe needed umpire Art Frantz to clean the plate a little more often as he walked 11 over 8.1 innings in a 2-0 win over the Senators. Stottlemyre gave up 6 hits and struck out 6 but walked the 3-4-5 hitters a total of 6 times to preserve the win.

Montreal Expos SP Bill Stoneman battered and bruised hitters during the season whacking 14 of them, but in two games during the 1970 season, Stoneman hit 3 opposition hitters in a game. On May 5th in a 4-1 loss to the Giants, Stoneman lasted 7 innings while giving up 3 hits, but 7 walks and 3 hit batters. On September 22nd in Pittsburgh, Stoneman hit 3 Pirate hitters in a 1-0 win over the Pirates. Besides the 3 plunkings, Stoneman gave up 6 hits, walked 2 and struckout 6 in a complete game win.

The Cincinnati Reds beat the Atlanta Braves 13-8 on April 21st while using the longball. The Reds hit 7 HRs including 4 off SP Phil Niekro in the win. The Reds also had a pair of doubles and 8 singles to complete the ball bashing.

The Chicago White Sox pounded out 24 hits in a 22-13 win over the Red Sox. The teams combined for 40 hits which surprisingly had only 3 HRs in the game combined. Red Sox SP Gary Peters lasted long enough to get just 2 outs in the start as the White Sox scored 6, had 5 hits and were aided by 2 Red Sox errors in the top of the 1st.

The longest game of the season was between the Senators and Yankees when the Senators scored with 2 outs in the bottom of the 18th for a 2-1 win. With runners on 1st and 3rd and 1-out, Senators Mike Epstein's SAC Fly scored Ed Stroud from 3rd in the walk off win.
