Capps deserved to be charged with 2 earned runs for inducing a lazy pop up with 2 outs in the ninth inning that cost his team the lead? Yeah, Capps sucked, especially the first 3 hitters where he was trying to overthrow everything (and his pitching line was thus charged with the hits and walks he gave up). But then he got outs. And McCann hit the ball hard all game, but he didn't hit that ball
hard, and it absolutely should have been caught. McCann shouldn't have gotten a hit, Capps shouldn't have been charged with 2 additional earned runs, and Bay shouldn't even have been charged with an error, because losing a ball in the lights isn't really his mistake. But it's also most certainly not Capps' mistake. That's why I like the idea of a "team" error, or whatever you want to call it.
