I can't even find the original thread I started on sports trivia, as it's become hopelessly lost among all of these spam threads that are overwhelming certain areas of this site and which the mods appear to be in no hurry of blocking them. So, I'm starting a new one.

This past Thursday, during the Red Sox/Twins game, Bosox starter Chris Sale pulled off a mound feat only equaled by one other MLB pitcher, and a Hall of Famer, at that.

In the 3rd inning, Sale pitched an immaculate inning against Minnesota, the third of his career. Only Sandy Koufax has ever reached that accomplishment before. For the uninitiated, an "immaculate inning" involves the pitcher not only getting three up and three down, but by doing so to all three hitters on 3 pitches all strikes. No hitting the ball, no balls thrown, no foul balls extending the strike 2 count.
