Defense is Difference

I’m no sabermetrician but I developed a few formulae that summarize last night’s game.

6 (Total Tampa Bay runs) - 4 (unearned runs) < 5 (Total Boston runs)

Marco Scutaro (first inning at bat) - bat = Happy kid in the stands

Mike Cameron one-out double (third inning) + Ben Zobrist (catch of Jeremy Hermida’s fly ball to right) ≠ Redemption

Victor Martinez (leadoff single in the fourth) + David Ortiz (double off the left field wall) = 0 runs

James Shields + 121 pitches + third start of the season + Joe Maddon = Dusty Baker

7th inning rally (Dustin Pedroia two-run HR + Kevin Youkilis solo HR) < Unearned runs from Cameron’s 1st inning error

39 degrees + 37,022 fans + rain + loss ≠ “Dirty Water”

Game 11: April 17, 2010
6W: James Shields (1-0)
H: Randy Choate (1)
H: Dan Wheeler (2)
S: Rafael Soriano (4)
2B: Pat Burrell (1), John Jaso – 2 (2)
HR: Evan Longoria (3)
Red Sox
5L: Clay Buchholz (1-1)
2B: Mike Cameron (2), David Ortiz (5), Dustin Pedroia (4)
HR: Dustin Pedroia (5), Marco Scutaro (1), Kevin Youkilis (2)
