The saying “pitching wins ball games” is complete crap when compared to RISP. If you can’t hit with runners beggin to come home after getting themselves into a position to score, you might as well be playing soccer.
For those that want to read a recap of today’s game, might as well brush up on friday nights failure. Two games out of three the Rox went 0-9 with RISP.
Sure, Friday was a much closer game. Probably because it didn’t have some of the following peppered in:
- crap catching behind the dish.
- crap pitching, especially first batter efficiency.
- James Loney’s hot bat.
- An unlucky Rutledge and just-slow glove.
You can’t go 4-30 with with RISP in a three game series and expect to win. Period.
