I sent an email to this guy expressing my displeasure -- he covers the game for the newspaper -- hopefully he can forward it to the "culprit"
Cubs pitcher Mark Prior owned a 3.00 ERA following his June 6 start against the Brewers, but official scorer Wayne Franke changed that stat on Wednesday. Franke ruled that shortstop Craig Counsell's sacrifice bunt was a single, thus changing four unearned runs into four earned runs. "You can't do anything about it because it's not up to us," Prior told the Associated Press. "The intent was a sacrifice and that's what it was, but it doesn't matter." Prior's ERA now stands at 4.00.
Wayne Franke was the guy who changed it. I say we find his house and egg it, whose with me?
Anyways it sucked, but I'm over it.
