  • Steve

    They left eight on base, not 22.

  • BIKI024

    no love for McAllister?!?

    sure the 4 walks were a bit too much, but only 3 hits and another QS for the kid..

    4-1 with a 3.17 ERA, 46K and only 15 walks in 48 innings.

    that’s pretty solid. we only gave up Austin Kearns for the guy.

  • Hypno_Toad

    Same thing.

  • mgbode

    think he’s counting each PA (so, guys are double-counted in alot of cases). some sites use that though I agree the more commonly accepted stat is to use the guys LOB at the end of innings (which is 8).

    otherwise, it’s a bit counter-intuitive to see that we left 22 on base when we only had 8 hits and 8 BBs (not to mention if there’s a man on 1st/2nd and you single the bases loaded it adds to the total. same situation w/ no outs and you sacrifice it adds to the total, etc.)

    But eight isn’t as dramatic as 22.

  • Vindictive_Pat

    Pure Rage should get some love as well… he mowed down the Rays in the 9th and didn’t allow Zobrist to come to the plate.

  • mgbode

    I only saw the last 3 innings and Rage seemed to have “it” going for him last night. It’s weird that it seems like you can tell when he’s locked in before he even starts pitching.
