Yes I'm in a tight HtH for ERA this week
How was Glavine not charged with an ER in this inning? The play-by-play is (w/ my notes in parentheses):
R Paulino walked. (Paulino is Glavine's responsibility)
Z Duke sacrificed to pitcher, R Paulino to second, Z Duke safe at first on error by pitcher T Glavine. (Duke is not his responsibility, 1 out for ER purposes)
A Heilman relieved T Glavine.
J Bautista hit by pitch, R Paulino to third, Z Duke to second.
J Wilson popped out to second. (2 outs for ER purposes)
S Casey walked, R Paulino scored, Z Duke to third, J Bautista to second. (Paulino scores, and was Glavine's responsibility, ER should be charged???)
J Bay grounded into fielder's choice to third, Z Duke scored, S Casey out at second, J Bautista to third.
F Sanchez singled to right, J Bautista scored, J Bay to second. 6 4
J Randa flied out to center.
Here is the definition and explanation of ER I'm finding, can't find why this wouldn't be an ER.
Rule 10.18 defines an earned run as "a run for which the pitcher is held accountable. In determining earned runs, the inning should be reconstructed wihtout the errors (which include catcher's interference) and passed balls, and the benefit of the doubt should always be given to the pitcher in determining which bases would have been reached by errorless play."
An earned run is charged every time a runner reached home base by
bases on balls
balks or wild pitches
before "fielding chances have been offered to put out the offensive team". This last clause means, basically, putouts plus errors, the idea being that the pitcher should not be held responsible for runs scoring after (e.g.) an error which should have been the third out.
No run scored by a runner who reaches base on an error (including after an error on a foul fly or by interference or obstruction) is earned.
No run scored by a runner who would have been put out by errorless play is earned.
No run scored by a runner whose advance is aided by
is earned unless the scorer judges that he would have scored without the misplay.
An error by the pitcher is scored just like an error by any other fielder in determining earned runs.
When fielding errors occur, give the benefit of the doubt to the pitcher when determining assumed baserunner advancement.
