MLB: Most RBI in a Baseball Game (2000 – Present)

Alex Rodriguez And Garret Anderson Are The Only Players With 10 RBI In A Game Since 2000

Alex Rodriguez And Garret Anderson Are The Only Players With 10 RBI In A Game Since 2000

Yasiel Puig may have knocked in five runs today, but that’s nothing (what?).

Fellow Los Angeles Dodger, Yasmani Grandal, collected eight RBI back in May. That’s the most in a single game this season.

But that’s nothing, either (whaaaat?).

Since 2000, nine players have had at least nine RBI in one game. They (and everybody with eight, too) are listed below in chronological order.

The tops? One of those crazy baseball things. New York Yankee, Alex Rodriguez, had 10 against the Los Angeles Angels in 2005. Two years later Los Angeles Angel, Garret Anderson, had 10 against the New York Yankees.

Guess what? That’s nothing.

Four players in history have had more. The all-time record? Find that answer, and a few others, tomorrow.

One more something. Everybody below was on the winning team, except Jason Bay. Bay (a rookie, then) had eight RBI for the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 10-9 loss to the Chicago Cubs back in 2003.

But Bay is on the list two times and was on a Pirate winner, too. He and Nelson Cruz are the only two-timers.

Thanks to the best baseball reference site on the Internet, aptly named baseball-reference.com (and the awesome Play Index).

NFL: Football Teams with the Most Hall of Fame Game Wins

Tom Benson Hall Of Fame Stadium In Canton, Ohio Where The Hall Of Fame Game Is Played

Tom Benson Hall Of Fame Stadium In Canton, Ohio, Where The Hall Of Fame Game Is Played

NFL Football is officially on.

The end of every (at last, it’s over) offseason is declared with the Hall of Fame exhibition game.

It’s played, of course, in Canton, Ohio, home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, on the Sunday following Saturday’s induction ceremony, and kicks off the preseason.

On Saturday, six players and two general managers were enshrined, including Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Junior Seau and five-time (the most) Super Bowl champion Charles Haley.

On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings won their third HOF Game over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Three other teams have won three times.

That’s not the most, though. The Washington Redskins edge out the Chicago Bears 5-4 for the top two slots.
