Game 22 Thoughts: Severely Unlucky

fangraphs

W: Wade LeBlanc (2-0)
L: Doug Davis (0-3)

If you didn’t watch the game and just looked at the box score this morning, you probably muttered something about Doug Davis and Jeff Suppan being typically bad and went on with your day.

The truth? The Brewers bled to death by papercuts.

The Padres scored 9 runs on Davis and Suppan, but every one of their 13 hits were singles. Estimating off the top of my head, there were maybe 4 or 5 hard-hit balls all night, and the majority of those were given up by Suppan.

As Jack Moore of Disciples of Uecker said last night, the BABIP gods were not happy with the Brewers.

The Brewers were unable to score off Padres starter Wade LeBlanc, despite having 4 of their 8 hits against him go for doubles.

There’s not a lot more left to say, other than Davis got extremely unlucky last night, and hopefully Dave Bush has better luck against the Padres tonight.
