Your lighting-fast Friday night recap:
Biggest Contribution: Richie Sexson, +14.9%
Biggest Suckfest: Yuniesky Betancourt, -8.4%
Most Important Hit: Sexson double, +21.2%
Most Important Pitch: Pierzynski double play, +16.7%
Total Contribution by Pitcher(s): +37.5%
Total Contribution by Hitters: +7.9%
In short: Joel faced one of the worst offenses in baseball and managed to survive into the seventh inning, and George Sherrill and Jeff Nelson were able to clean up a bit of a mess he left on the bases. Ichiro's still struggling (hitless in last five games), Sexson's still swinging a hot power bat, Snelling's still awesome, and Podsednik still hasn't hit a triple or a homer in 359 at bats on the year.
As a recap substitute, I provide for you this link. Enjoy.
