If the batter swings at a pitch and the pitch hits the batter, it is a strike.

I didn't know either.


right, but even if it's a strike, i thought he only had 1 strike on him before it happened. so maybe nesn was behind on the balls and strikes...? because he was called out, and if it was just a strike, wouldn't he have just been back up with 2 strikes on him?


I believe Blake had already fouled off 2 pitches already.


Ah, got it. Just watched it over again with my mlb.com subscription. It went foul-ball-foul-hitonhandstrike (Gameday confirms). The weird part was that after the ball hit him and there was the little conference, the count on NESN went to 2-2, which makes absolutely no sense at all. Should have never had the 2-ball count on the display.

Beth, your game summaries are the best on the internet. They evoke the specific feeling of each victory and loss better than any other news site or blog I have run into (which is why I'm a little sad when you break for a few days, but I understand real life often trumps blog life). Keep on rockin'.


hey devine, thanks for helping me clear that up--and thanks so much for your kind words. it means a lot. i try to be consistent w/r/t posting but have sort of fallen off a bit over the last w.e. due to excessive vacationing. :) it's great and flattering that somebody notices! thanks for reading and commenting, i really value all the feedback i get.
