Malarkey: Why doesn't Joe Biden leave John Malarkey alone?

October 12, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

But did Biden realize that Malarkey is the only pitcher in major-league history to win a game for himself by hitting a walkoff home run?

During a game in 1902, Malarkey (then with the Boston Beaneaters), facing Mike O'Neill of the St. Louis Cardinals, led off in the bottom of the 11th inning with a home run, giving Boston a 4-3 victory.

What's that you say? Biden was talking an entirely different kind of Malarkey?

Well, never mind then.
