n.— «Normally, a pitcher must work five innings to earn a victory. Pitchers who make a living off five-inning victories are only slightly more respected than convicted felons. “Five and fly,” the saying goes. “Three and flee” is out-and-out larcenous.» —“‘Three-and-flee’ larceny at core” by Joel Bierig Chicago Sun-Times Mar. 25, 1990.
