Kevin Cash pulls Blake Snell with 73 pitches in scripted Game 6 of the World Series, October 27, 2020, Dodgers over Rays


Pulling Snell after 73 pitches is the storyline of the night.

Recall, in Game 3, on the 73rd pitch, Mookie Betts hit an RBI single up the middle, giving the Dodgers the 5-0 lead, in a battle between a hitter and pitcher both wearing number 50, while the Dodgers were chasing the 50th World Series win for the National League.

Then in Game 5, Clayton Kershaw set the strikeout record in the postseason, on his 73rd pitch of the game.

And of course, for years I’ve been talking about the Dodgers and 73 for years on YouTube.

    “Pulled after 73 pitches” = 201 (Jewish Ordinal)

    Supposedly Snell was ‘disappointed’ in being pulled, so it could be said that he was ‘sacrificed,’ like his team in this World Series. “Sacrifice” = 73 (English Ordinal);”Snell” = 73 (Reverse Ordinal)

    “Blake” = 31 (English Ordinal);”Blake” = 32 (Reverse Full Reduction)
