The fine folks at the Jays Days Beer Club and Tallboys Craft Beer House are hosting an event this coming Wednesday, February 20 at 7:30 pm, when they will be showing a mystery game from the 2012
2013 season. The Jays Days Twitter account has released three clues about said game, see if you can figure out which one it is!
Today's #mysterygame hint: both teams combined scored 11 of the game's runs on homers.— Jays Days Beer Club (@JaysDaysBeer) February 13, 2013
Long weekend #mysterygame hint: the Jays accomplish something in this game for only the 6th time in club history/the 1st time since 2005.— Jays Days Beer Club (@JaysDaysBeer) February 15, 2013
Counting is hard, jury still out on math: a correction to the Feb. 11 #mysterygame hint - both teams combined used 12 pitchers.— Jays Days Beer Club (@JaysDaysBeer) February 15, 2013
To make a game of it, here are some clues to two other mystery Blue Jays games from the 2012 season:
Game 1: A combination of 13 pitchers were used by the two teams, throwing a sum of 435 pitches. One of the Blue Jays pitchers in the game, despite having a winning probability added (WPA) of less than -.200, did something that had never happened before in franchise history, and there were two Blue Jays injuries in the game (ok that last clue doesn't narrow down things very much).
Game 2: This game featured polar opposites: one Blue Jay player recorded the second highest WPA of the season and another recorded the worst WPA of the season. This was one of the rare games when the swearing ban was lifted!
