crooked number
 n.— «Manuel believes the home run “is your greatest hit in baseball.” It gives the Phillies big-innings capability. They began Game 5 with 14 multi-run innings—”crooked numbers” in the parlance—out of 112 innings in the postseason.» —“Rays, Phillies make runs with speed, power” by Gerry Fraley USA Today Oct. 27, 2008.
