ERV Boxscore for June 9, vs. Oakland

That's more like it -- I missed those high-leverage late innings. The dismal mid-May road trip is but a faded memory; if we were Redskins fans, we'd be clamoring for the Nats to start selling playoff tickets. Of course, Seattle just put some hurt on the Marlins, and they are headed north.


-- I gave Castilla the fielding debit in the ninth, even though Baerga got the error. He had time to go to first, and he should know who is playing second (see, e.g. this game).

-- We finish off that 10-game segment 9-1, and move to within one game of Playoff Pace, the highest we've been since I began tracking it in late April. If we split on the road and win 2 of 3 at home the rest of the year, we will end up with 94 wins.

ERV Win: Hernandez
ERV Loss: Blanton

3 Most Valuable Plays:
(1) Castilla's errant throw to Baerga (-3.48)
(2) Johnson's double in the 3rd (3.11)
(3) Crosby's groundout to end the game (-2.38)

Nick Johnson and Ryan Church should both have positive fielding ERV for their repective plays in the field for this game. True? I thought they both made great defensive plays.

I'd probably agree with you on NJ's play -- not that MASN actually had a good camera angle!

But Church's play was fairly routine, despite the acrobatic catch. That ball was up in the air a LONG time. I don't know if they had the batter positioned strangely, or if he had a bad jump. But, that's a ball that needs to be caught.

You may be right, anonymous. I'll take a look at both again tonight.
