ERV Boxscore for April 8 at Houston

I listened to the first inning on the way to pick up dinner, and arrive home glum, convinced that there was no way, just no way, we give Oswalt 5 runs and win the game. But by the time the kids are in bed and I come back to the game, we're up 9-7, thanks to Chad Qualls doing his best Jason Bergmann impersonation. Un-be-liev-able. I'm starting to get the same feelings about this team as last year's -- just when they look truly awful, they manage to do something remarkable. Let's hope this ride continues.

ERV Win: Byrd (50%), Soriano (50%)
ERV Loss: Qualls

Three Most Valuable Plays:
(1) Soriano's double in the 7th (3.21)
(2) Byrd's double in the 7th (2.58)
(3) Berkman's HR in the 1st (2.14)

Fielding credit for Byrd? Which play?

Also... how did you handle his error in the first inning (or any foul ball error)? Does it depend on what the batter eventually does?

There was a fly ball to Byrd with a runner on 3d and less than 2 outs and he didn't score, which generates an automatic credit.

I'll have to account for the error. The ESPN gamecast had not given him on, so I didn't reflect it. But I see in the box that it was credited.

I see where BWatson had entries in the Bat, Field, AND Run columns! Isn't that the kind of toolsy outfielder that Bowden wanted?

Oh, they're negative values. Never mind. :-(
