He hit a three-run homer in Seattle's win Saturday night.The Mariners came into Sunday's game with a 22-16 record, and Cano is one of the team's biggest stars. He hit 39 home runs in 2016, although that number dipped to 23 a season ago.

Hey-if I'm pitching , I don't want to give up any runs . Sure I'm a "team guy," but I have pride, and I care about my E.R.A. Any pitcher who says he doesn't is not being honest. You Are Here: Organization Home . » Pitching Sequence .

On August 14, he finally gave up a run .3 In between, he threw 39 scoreless innings Elden Auker, who switched to an underhand delivery after a college football injury, pitched for 10 years in the Since World War II, just two pitchers with 300 or more innings have been stingier with home runs

a close up of a game: USA TODAY© USA TODAY USA TODAY Jefferson College (Mo.) won the Region XVI Championship over the weekend with its 7-4 win against Crowder College. The Vikings' win featured just about the roughest sequence we'll see happen to a pitcher.

With Joey Polak at the plate and a runner on first, Crowder pitcher Ross Carver lost hold of a breaking ball and sent the pitch sailing 20 feet wide of the plate. The pitch hit off the back netting as the runner easily advanced to second.

The second pitch, though, would be the one Carver wanted back the most. Wait for it …

Polak turned on the next pitch for a no-doubt home run.

If you consider the immediate "GOODBYE! WOO!" dude in the crowd and the solid bat flip from Polak, it would be hard to imagine a two-pitch sequence going any worse.

Jefferson College improved to 50-9-1 with the win.
