ERV Boxscore for September 6, vs. Florida

Not much to say here. Darrell Rasner passed his initiation into the "arsonists", the club of journeyman starting pitchers who seem to have no chance of winning a game. Though, in this game, the experienced bullpen came through to douse the flames and hold the Marlins to 4 runs, which should be enough to win. But our offense went sour (why is Cristian Guzman playing? I thought we got D. Cruz to replace him) and we lose.

ERV Win: Moehler
ERV Loss: Drasner

3 Most Valuable Plays:

(1) Wilkerson's HR in the 3rd (1.90)
(2) Castillo's HR in the 5th (1.53)
(3) Hermida's double in the 3rd (1.33)

Big game tonight. We need to win series against other Wild Card contenders.

It's interesting that, in a relatively close game, that the losing team has the most valuable play.

Home team runs are usually more valuable. Also, 2 runs scored on the play, unlike the Marlins runs, which came 1 at a time.

But in terms of helping a team in the game, I think it makes sense that Wilkerson's blast was more important than the individual plays of the Marlins.

One thing I've learned from doing all this: 3 run leads are usually in surmountable.
