    Last night, despite a magnificent 6.2 innings outing by Miller, Siegrist was the pitcher of record when the Cards scored what turned out to be the winning run in the bottom of the 7th.

    The official scorer gave the win to Miller, if the box score is to be believed. Most of the time the pitcher of record when the winning run scores is awarded the win.

      Interesting. I missed that.

      On a related point, I heard an intriguing idea recently. One way to fix uneven official scoring would be to add a fifth umpire in the booth. In addition to handling replay duties, he could serve as the scorer.

        Interesting. The idea being that an umpire would be better able to tell what is an error and what isn’t? A PB or a WP? I don’t know that they have special expertise in that area.

        I know that the official scorer sometimes changes an error to a hit, or vise versa, during the game. I assume that once he turns in his score sheet at the end of the game his authority to make changes ends. Can the league president, or somebody, still make a change after that?

        Could the win from last night theoretically still be awarded to Siegrist?

        Could Jay’s error a while back theoretically still be changed to a hit, keeping his errorless streak alive (not that there was any doubt, but theoretically)?

        • Brian Walton says:

          At times, scorers are pressured by local officials to change calls in favor of the home team. In today’s game, a player almost has to be Charlie Brown-undressed before being given an error, for example. Umpires are used to being questioned and should be less inclined to bend.

          MLB has the power to change official scoring rulings after the fact. (League presidents have been gone for over a decade, though.)

          A while back, Matheny requested a change after the fact to a double hit by Molina that was misplayed in right field and originally called an error. It was changed to a hit about a week later.

          There have been other instances of teams asking rulings to be changed after the fact and they were.

    It should also be noted that the Nats are only 6 games behind the Walts for the 2nd WC spot.

    A couple of other thoughts.

    Wong looked a lot better at the plate during his PH appearance. He showed patience and a good eye, eventually working the count full and drawing the walk. He’s been going up there hacking away, getting himself out.

    Peterson just isn’t happening.

    Jackson’s misplay on the ball that went off his glove the other day probably doomed him, if he wasn’t already doomed.

    We can’t have our closer giving up 2 hits per inning. I hope Mujica quits with the Franklin impersonation. The thing that is scary about it is Mike will stay with him no matter what. Not that I think any change should be contemplated at this point, but no change will be contemplated at any point, no matter what. We know that from the Boggs thing.

    Brendan Ryan is a Yankee. Who would have ever thought that? I’m happy for him though.
