Giants’ homers, MadBum beat Brewers

  1. Checked the pitchers game scores yesterday. Madison 53, Garza 35. Pretty good game for our boys! I just wish the hated ones would lose a game so we can move closer to them in the standings, but it is still early and we have lots of games left to leave them behind. But all we need is a WC spot. This team can do it! Hope Vogey continues his winning ways today. Hope our young guys continue to impress, I just love watching Matt Duffy play 3rd base. That kid has a good baseball head on his shoulders! I will miss the game today, but have my DVR set to record. If they win I will have to watch it later. GO GIANTS!

      1. Great question Mike. From Wikipedia:

        Game Score is a metric devised by Bill James to determine the strength of a pitcher in any particular baseball game. To determine a starting pitcher’s game score:

        · Start with 50 points.
        · Add one point for each out recorded, so three points for every complete inning pitched.
        · Add two points for each inning completed after the fourth.
        · Add one point for each strikeout.
        · Subtract two points for each hit allowed.
        · Subtract four points for each earned run allowed.
        · Subtract two points for each unearned run allowed.
        · Subtract one point for each walk.

        So, a score over 50 is very good, and anything approaching 60 is exceptional. Hope that helps.
