The Dirty Inning, Episode 2: September 14, 1948

New, comments

"Let this be a testament to the rarity that is baseball's triple."

In the latest episode of The Dirty Inning, a podcast in which Justin Klugh and Trevor Strunk break down the laziest, sloppiest, most mundane, terrible innings they can find in Phillies history, we travel back to 1948. On an afternoon at Shibe Park, a man throws his last few pitches as a big leaguer, two men combine for almost the entirety of their season total in stolen bases on a single play, and elsewhere, the patent for "synthetic face and body detergent" is passed.

Start your holiday break with a long-forgotten inning of entirely forgettable Phillies baseball!
