Leave it to the Marlins to find a new -- and very rare -- way to lose. They dropped a 1-0 decision to Arizona on Saturday on Gerardo Parra's home run off Tom Koehler on the very first pitch of the game.

That doesn't happen often.

Heck, according to Stats LLC, it hasn't happened in any MLB game since 1993 and, wouldn't you know it, the Marlins were involved in that one, too. In September of the Marlins' inaugural season, Pittsburgh's Carlos Garcia went yard on Chris Hammond's first pitch at Joe Robbie Stadium, and the 1-0 score held up.

But there was just one tiny extra detail to that particular game. It was called after six innings.

The last 9-inning game to result in a 1-0 score in which the only run came on a first-pitch homer? Nobody knows for certain. Stats LLC's records for that particular stat only go back to 1988 and, according to their information, Saturday's game was the ONLY such 9-inning game decided that way over the past 25 years.
