I don't judge good nights by wins and losses because they don't tell the whole story. In that sense, it wasn't a good night necessarily, but it actually kind of was. Tommy Manzella continues to hit well for a middle infielder and Bogey is hitting well as of late. David Carpenter had another scoreless outing and is now to the point that it's getting ridiculous. Chris Wallace debuted last night in CC, and while he didn't pick up a hit, he did draw a walk and drive in his first RBI. Jimmy Paredes hit a pinch-hit home run and Altuve had another multi-hit game. The list goes on and on, which is the purpose of these recaps.
But, what I want to kind of figure out, is where to draw the line between good outings and bad for pitchers with a skewed run/earned run stat line? For example, last night there were two pitchers that each gave up five runs, but only one of them was earned. They don't count against their ERA, but because in one situation, a home run is an unearned run. The fact is some shouldn't be accredited to his fault, some should. Would the home run have happened had he been out of the inning? Not in that inning, but who's to say the batter wouldn't have hit anyway. Sure, the situation changes, but the he still put the bat on the ball and drove it out of the park. Both pitchers put up great strikeout numbers, so overall they did pitch good games but were plagued by errors that allowed several "unearned" runs. I think some of those runs have to have some fault on the pitchers though.
