Schrodinger's Bat: Caught Stealing to Lose the Game

0

Dan Fox

Erick Aybar ended two Angels' losses by getting caught on the basepaths. Was there any method behind this madness?

"It was a good time to run and it happened to be a good pitch for the catcher to throw onIt's just part of the game. You want to get a guy in scoring position. Sometimes you're aggressive and it comes out against you. We're an aggressive team, and we like to play our game, within ourselves. It's not always going to work in your favor."
-- Howie Kendrick, after teammate Erick Aybar was thrown out stealing to end the April 10th game against Cleveland

Licey had the best run differential in the league (+75) and they underperformed their Pythagorean record by just one game. They were the best at run prevention (3.7 runs allowed per game, league average 4.7) and their offense was second behind the Eagles.
