This was an exciting baseball game. Far from the record or years of recovery of both teams, this game has tracks, powerful blasts, great defensive appearances, and more hits from the Braves and the Yankees.
A few weeks ago, Craig Edwards of FanGraphs wrote a post for the most (and least) exciting baseball team, relying heavily on the likelihood of victory and the leverage index, as well as their own creations – "Horror Results" and "Exhale Index". I will miss the details: between their bad records and the many blows, the sailors were near the bottom. At the beginning of June, in fact, sailors were the second least exciting watch in baseball. The only team below them? Orielli
With its powers, the two darkest artists in the league turned the screenplay this evening, combining for 1
Pique with Leake started in 1st, giving up four of his eleven blows, giving Baltimore a 3-0 hole. He was the victim of a thousand redundancies this evening, but he managed to find his best FIP at the start of May 14th, as every fieldman found a hole, each liner passed a defender and no flying ball left the yard. Although they have won eight runs – six won – in 5.1 IP, Leake has been queuing for victory thanks to the eruption of crime from all the right sources.
JP Crawford – 3-for-4, BB
It was a perfect 1-2 strikes at the start of the order and put the table on the crimes of sailors all night. Yes, Mc Williamson relaxed. Yes, Dylan Moore put the ball in the pub. Yes, Kyle Seigger received his wRC + over 100 with a bomb.
But the game players were both at the top of the order, spraying the singles and devastating the players we hoped could have been when the sailors traded for them. Crawford added a brilliant day of defense, turning into a double double game and playing a good backhand game that any defender, but Vogelbach would initially be out. Roennis Elias closed the door of the 9th and Mariner won the victory. It would be an irritating night in 2014, or 2015, or 2016, or … you get the idea. But this night it was a pleasure. This summer of nonsense, please.
