Sometimes the bear eats you.

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Bucknor wasn't even looking: Max Scherzer (-11.7%) gets walked off, giving up 2 runs in 8.1 IP with 9 Ks and no walks.
  • Charge! Wilson Ramos (+14.4%) is 2-4 with a 7th-inning RBI single to tie the game (+15.8%).
  • Futility: Yunel Escobar (-16.5%) hits some balls hard and is rewarded with an 0-4 night with 3 LOB.
  • More futility. Also, mismanagement: Dan Uggla (-15.2%) ends the night 0-3 with a GDP after inexplicably being called upon to bunt (and failed to do so) in the 7th.
