    Ah, Baseball Reference, truly you are a place of wonder! We’ve played the most one-run games of anyone so far (closest is the Brewers with 34) and before tonight’s game, had outperformed our .520 Pythagorean winning % by .061.

    Um. Brewers with twenty-four, sorry.

    5,000 words for this conclusion:

    One-run games involve a huge amount of luck. This may be the only safe statement that can be made about them.

    Fangraphs shows Cedeno moving from second to short, but they don’t list anyone other than Cedeno for playing second.

    So what happened, did Cedeno play both second and short in the 9th?

    If we were going to clone someone, why did they pick Cedeno?

    There is a use for the old-fashioned boxscore yet! Chris Woodward moved to second and Cedeno to short.

    Speaking of Niehaus and Krueger, they were too busy blabbing to notice Balentien’s marked grimace of pain on a check swing. In fact, Wlad had to leave the batter’s box for several seconds, visibly shaking the arm.

    I suspect Balentien’s lack of power is in no small part due to the hyperextended elbow injury he suffered several weeks ago, on a check swing. He is also wearing the sleeve over the elbow again.
