The Human Element

Presented, by means of the TexasLeaguers’ Pitch/FX Database, the top of the ninth inning of last night’s game. Please pay attention to the two green dots inside the box.

Drew Storen, October 12, 2012, as called by Alfonso Marquez.

The first green dot came during Allen Craig’s at-bat. It didn’t matter, because Craig struck out.

The second meant all the difference: The second green dot was to Yadier Molina. If that call had been correct, the Nats would have won.
